Memorandum Monday

And I'm back! Thank you for all your good wishes here and on Facebook. So a lot has happened in 2 weeks! The flight to Berlin.
The quirky hotel we stayed in just 5 minutes walk from the hospital. 
The operation at the clinic. I was not at all nervous on the day. I had so much confidence in my consultant and this was not misplaced.
The flight back to the UK and the excellent service from the ground crew when I needed assistance to get to the car park.

Beautiful flowers from my family in Cornwall.
And Penny and Hugh looking after me (and Ben phoning me every other day to see how I was). 

I am still on sick leave and will be seeing the GP tomorrow to see if I am fit to return to work. I have done a little bit of scrapbooking whilst I have been off but not too much as I have had trouble focusing with the swollen eyelids. 

So, what have I done for the first time? Well, I think migraine surgery can count!

And what have I learned? Well, that people can be so kind when you are not expecting it (Gatwick) and that 2 weeks can make a huge difference in your looks!
Just after the operation, 3 days after the op, today.
Joining in with Sian who had the idea for this great meme.
