You should see the icicles hanging from the roofs in Falköping. They were all long, heavy and dangerous. There were signs all over the town about roof droppings (can one write soo? sounds like cat droppings or something like that :-) :-)  ).

My tv hates me I think or prhaps I should say the digital box to my tv. It worked allright last morning and when I had fetched my mother at the traistation I thought it would be best to move it down to the livingroom where she´s sleping. Suddenly it refused to work. I get a picture showing nothing. I tried to make a channel search but nothing happens?? For some reason the signals from the tv antenna refuses to get to the digital box. The antenna cable is only a year old, but I´m hoping that it´s broken somewhere so now I´ve bought 20 meters of new cable (about the same in Yards).




Thankfully we can see tv in my computor too! Since it is the Olympics and my mother wants to look at it during her stay here it would be a bit annoying if it would be impossible to look at it at all. Well there´s radio, but it isn´t the same. Especially if the commentator isn´t good.






It has been snowing for the last 24 hours and it will continue more or less until tuesday. Not good! My mother is of respectable age :-) and shouldn´t really showel snow at all. But it she wants to get out of the cottage and if she wants to drive anywhere she must showel. Especially next friday when I get home again. I can´t jump over a high edge of snow with crutches. So I´ll have to talk to my neighbour that has a tractor, so he can get rid of some of that snow before I get home again. Otherwise I have a hughe problem!




This will be my last entry before going to surgery. If everything goes ast it should I´ll be writing a short thing about me having comming back. I´m not allowed to sit to long in the beginning :-) :-) But until then: have a great week now!

Hi Kat!
Thanks!
As long as I don´t get an infection of any kind it´ll be all fine :-)
Take care now!
Christer.

I'll be praying for you that all goes well too. Good thing you have your mother there to help you. All that snow must be so hard to cope with in the best of times, but now especially so.

Hoppas nu att allt blir till det bästa. Både med operation,tv och skottning:) Detta vädret är ju en ren förbannelse tycker jag, Göran kunde inte köra in till gården i går kväll när han kom hem vid 22tiden. Han fick ställa bilen vid 160:an och gå in, det är inte så långt visserligen men ändå, det har aldrig hänt förr så
vitt jag kommer ihåg.

Christer, we will miss you but can't wait to hear how your surgery went. I'm sure you will do fine. And a year from now you'll be glad you had the surgery. I know I was. Best to you and we'll be thinking of you this weekend. Many purrs from the Zoey!

Christer,

You will be in my thoughts. It will be good to get this behind you so you won't suffer any more pain after it heals.

Gets lots of rest and let us know how you are.

Good heavens! I thought I had missed you and telling you good luck. We'll be thinking of you! You will be back and going full steam by Spring...
I'm glad your mother will be with you! That is always a good thing!! I stayed with Dan for a long time after his surgery...you and he are close in age I think.
Yep, us Mom's are good to have in times like this.
:) Take care, Christer...hurry home.

Tjänare Monne!
Just nu snöar och blåser det så kraftigt att jag inte vet om jag ens lyckas ta mig till bussen imorgon!
Skitväder!!!!
Ha det gott!
Christer.

Hi Joyce!
Thanks :-) But at the moment I´m not even sure I´ll make it to the bus stop tomorrow. We´re having a snowstorm that will continue all day and probably night too.
Take care!
Christer.

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Z&M!
If I only can come even to the bus stop tomorrow I´ll be lucky! The snowstorm is quite atrong now and it will continue all day and perhaps night. I´m so tired of this white shit from the sky right now :-)
Take care!
Christer.

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Bri!
Thanks. I´ll try to visit Your blog when I return home.
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Linda!
Thanks! I really wants this to be done now, but if the snowstorm continues like this I´m not even sure I´ll get there. I can just wait and see and hope for the best.
Take care now!
Christer.

Tjänare Lotta1
Jag är så trött på denna vita skiten från skyn! Fortsätter det så här vet jag inteens om jag kan komma till KSS. Vägarna helt igenblåsta en busshållplats utan skydd, så kommer den inte eller är mycket sen kan jag mycket väl dö där i väntan på bussen :-)
Ha det gott du med!
Christer.

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hejsan NinaH!
Jag är inte ens säker på att jag kan komma till busshållplatsen, men tack skall du ha :-)
Ha det gott!
Christer.

Hi MOna!

Monaxe said...

Oj oj oj Christer! Snacka om dålig timing med operation just när kung Bore visar sig från sin absolut värsta sida! Men tom kung Bore måste ju ge med sig så småningom, det är snart mars och detta skitväder tar ju slut nångång! Det gäller att ha tålamod (och hjälp med snöskottning)
Hoppas att allt går bra och att du snabbt är tillbaka i hemmet och i bloggvärlden.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Yes, I can see that a long winter such as you have and some of our people on the East coast of the U.S. could get awfully tired of it. I'm afraid I would.
I hope the surgery is all over for you now!
Looking forward to having you back.
Mona
