Belated New Year greetings ! Hope it proves to be a happy one for all .
The marmalade season is upon us once more and today was the start of the annual marathon. I only made fourteen jars this session because my wrists and hands were showing their age and protesting . Is it any wonder ? When I think of all the writing,slicing, chopping,beating,mixing, spinning,knitting, sewing and at one time pounding the piano keys they have done I realised they have served me very well and been wonderful friends . Opening things is sometimes difficult now and I have to appeal for help with packets,tins and jars although I have found that you can unscrew a milk container with the nut crackers.Sadly it often proves impossible to open the bathroom and kitchen cleaners but I can usually manage the chocolate boxes and chocolate biscuit packets are no problem either so the future is still promising.
It's good to get back to normal and resume all the usual activities . It will soon be Spring, It is cold but sunny today and the snowdrops are already peeping through in the front garden!
