Let us start with some good news. Just came from Snowy's blog and Erik is awake!!!!!! The drain is out, he reacts to the things people tell him, although it's is still hard for him to speak. He even can swallow himself again.
Now that is news we were all waiting for. There is still a LONG way to go, but this gives at least more hope!
Snowy received this news yesterday, just on Thanksgiving day, and how wonderful is that?
Erik still needs a lot of payers and healing thoughts, but this news is already something to be grateful for!
All details you can read on Snowy's blogpost!
Next news is really a sad one. It concers a little girl of 7 years old in Australia, she's called Mikayla. This brave girl will probably not live till Christmas, suffering from a very aggressive cancer, but it's amazing to read how she copes with this.

Please take the effort to go to that blog, perhaps all designers can really join together to achieve a fantastic goal!
After these things all other news seems of little importance, really. Well, I went to hospital yesterday, all went rather quick, I told the nurse about my sleeping problems, caused by the coughing, and I was advised to take another puff from the medicine just before going to sleep. It might help. (I am only taking a puff 3 times a day at the moment). So I did yesterday when I went to bed and I must say, the time I slept through wasn't still great, but already longer than in the past few weeks. Went t bed around 1.30 night and slept till 7.00 in the morning. Only then awake because I had to couch a lot, although it was easier and over with sooner than in the past weeks. Hoorray for that, we'll keep trying this and may be my body can get used again to be asleep for a longer period, would be great!
I finally did some wrapping up some Christmas presents that should be posted soon, yeah! I'll have to search still a few more, but it's is almost done. You cannot imagine what fun it is, to look around for some little presents and then wrapping them up and putting them into a small box. I just hope I made good choices for the presents LOL.
As you noticed I already changed my bloglayout again, in a real Christmas theme! It is still November, I know, but not for very long anymore, so I thought I could do this now. It brings us more into the Christmas feeling! Even managed to make a few things for Minky's again, but as I don;t know if she will have time to post them for this weekend, I'll wait a bit with showing you the previews. Minky is real busy now in her fairy garden, to make a Christmas corner!
Didn't get to the housework yesterday, when I got back from hospital. First I took a sandwich and then I took a little nap and after that I made my soup. I have a large pan ready, so for this evening we'll have an easy dinner, we'll have.......................................soup! It's a good filled one, so it should be enough. Always can take a slice of bread with it, and if still a bit hungry I have still a part of a bone ham we had yesterday.
Now as freebie for today there is the 1st Christmaskit, yeah! I have several made, and I hope they are varied enough to suite everybody's taste LOL. This one is named: "Past Time Christmas". A rather big dowload, containing 12 papers and a total of 23 elements, think the file is about 80 MB)
Have a wonderful, bright weekend!
