Happy New Year

Hello world. I'm back from the Christmas holidays. The family decamped to Switzerland where the in-laws live. We ate too much, drank too much, let the kids spend too much with the grandparents (they are almost feral!!!). Hubby and I also managed to get away for 3 days to meet up with friends in Val D'isere and go skiing. The weather was absolutely freezing (minus 14 C at 4pm, minus 23 C in the evening and at the top of the mountain!!). This is where my bad news start. I fell while skiing and the doctors think I have a torn ACL. So, right now I have a swollen left knee. I am limping. I have to inject myself with anti-coagulant drugs in my tummy (my hubby gets too grossed out to do it!!). I have 2 kids to look after on my own. I may need surgery. The year didn't really end on a happy note.

But really, apart from the little accident, 2005 was a good year. On the knitting front, I have started and completed more projects than ever. I have learnt new techniques. My stash of books, magazines and yarn have grown. I have met and made new friends. I hope 2006 is a good one too.

Anyway, more soon. Off the rest my leg.

sorry about the fall and hope that your knee isn't as bad as you think it might be at the moment.

Sorry to hear about your knee accident. It sounds painful and I really wish that you have a speedy recovery. Take care!
Wish you a wonderful new Year!

Oh Ling I am so sorry to hear about your knee. This seems to be an injury much associated with sports (seems to happen to a lot of rugby players!). I have always maintained that excercise is A VERY BAD THING, and so avoid it like the plague myself.

I hope that you make a speedy recovery.

Oh, I'm sorry about the injury. Torn ACL with litte ones to chase is going to be a challenge. Hang in there Ling. I'll light a candle for you.
