Happy St Benedict's Day

Dave and Pip usually share Morning prayers together and whilst I was having a quiet cup of tea, Pip declared that it was a feast day today.  That can only mean one thing ... cake for afternoon tea :-)



























As you will see from the photos the kids worked together as a team and the cake from start to finish was their creation.

My absence here has been due to a major downturn in my health, so much so it forced me to visit the GP surgery on Friday.  I have been struggling this past month  with all out crippling fatigue that usually puts me in bed several times throughout the day.  However just over a week ago I developed some weird neurological symptoms of numbness and pins and needles in both my arms, hands, legs and feet.  I have had blood tests done this morning and a further GP review is booked for Friday morning.  

Although the tingling is still present it is currently manageable and does not dominate every waking moment of my day.  Last week was horrendous with the nerve pain :-(  Here's hoping it is something that will fade quickly in due course.

Despite being unwell I have still just about managed to keep up with my job and so the links for the last two posts are below:
