Welcome back, SimonBaker! So good to hear the "benign". Take it easy and mend well.

It's still freezing cold and wet here. Just made some popcorn for us with salt and vinegar spice for hubby and me and sour cream and chives spice for the kids :)

That's all great news SB. I'm happy you're on the road to recovery. Listen to the Docs. They may not explain why they tell you something but it's probably important to do it.

+1

I've had four abdominal surgeries and they are very difficult to recover from. I understand the feeling of wanting to jump back into things, but that will only set you back in your recovery. Your body is busy healing those cuts and doesn't have a lot of extra energy for moving around. Take it slow.

Take this opportunity to do things you haven't had time to do before. Read a few books you've always wanted to read. Watch a few old movies. Do some sort of online class - there's lots out there for free. When you're tired, sleep. Remember that it's all about the healing. Take care.

I woke up this morning in the mood to cook/make something different for supper tonight, but I have no idea what, so most of this morning I've been trying to come up with something. I'm not opposed to a store run if anyone has any ideas.

And it's cold here, too, but at least it's sunny and calm! We had quite a frost last night, but I don't think too many things had budded.
