We’ve had a busy day over here today. We had an appointment at the doctor’s surgery with Hjálmfríður Bríet this morning. She has had numerous infections in her throat for the last 2 years or so so her ENT doctor decided that enough was enough and the tonsils had to be removed. So, today was the day. After going to bed early and fasting after 10pm we went to the doctor’s surgery. She was very brave and went through the anaesthetic like a champion. We were with her while she fell asleep. Then we had to wait in the waiting room while the doctor did the surgery. She woke up without any problems and we were back home in the afternoon. She is spending her time in bed right now and taking it easy. I’ll be going back to work tomorrow and friday but Rúnar is staying home with her those two days. She has to take it really easy for a week and won’t be going to school during this time.
I am finishing up a mattress pincusion for an exchange. I will take it to my exchange partner tomorrow as it is an exchange on the icelandic group “Allt í kross”. Tomorrow is the last day so I’ll be on time. I also went shopping when I picked Jóhanna Brynja up at daycare. We went and bought some yarn as I’d like to knit some of the Christmas presents this year and I’d better start now if I want to get things done.
Not more to tell you right now. My birthday is approaching very fast. I have got some envelopes waiting to be opened with birthday gifts enclosed. I’ll get to that early saturday morning. I won’t be having a party though as Hjálmfríður Bríet will be spending time in bed recovering from having her tonsils removed and Rúnar will be working the whole weekend. So it seems like my birthday on saturday will be a very quiet one this year. I guess I’ll just spend it either knitting or stitching which I really like. 🙂
