Almost back.

The last week of our stay in Portugal I got a thick sore throat. We went to see a GP. He advised me to take antibiotics. We went back home and the antibiotics didn't work out the way they should so I went to my own GP in the Netherlands. She prescribed me another antibiotics and she sent me to the hospital for blood samples and photos. At the end of the week she rushed me to the oral surgeon. There I became a drain in my throat.
The next week the drain was removed. But a week later I was back in hospital again. I couldn't eat my tongue and ears were very painful. So another drain was placed and another antibiotics was prescribed.
A few days later the drain was removed again and I told the surgeon that I didn't like another placed again. I would be operated the 29 of November but the surgeon thought it was better to move the date forward to the 8th of November.
So on the 8th of November one of the salivary glands was removed. Now my throat is almost cured.

I'm back in making miniatures again at last. But I can't show them right now because they're for the 5th of December.
In the Netherlands we have Sinterklaas instead of Santa Claus. The children get presents and when they're getting older we also pull papers with a name of a family member written on it. We buy a special present for the person whose name is on your paper and make something that goes with the present. We also write a little poem to go with the present and its surprise. So I can show you my surprise after the 5th of December because my children can read my blog also.

But I can show you my present. I'm very happy with this cupboard. I got this present from my husband because it's my birthday today. 
The dollhouse is out of the box but I only made the steps of the stair and Frans made a parquet floor.
We hope to work on the doll house very soon.
At the moment we're making things for Sinterklaas and then Christmas is coming up. 
After 7 weeks going in and out the hospital we have a lot of outstanding things to do.

    Christmas isn't such a big event over here as it is in many other countries. We only have a Christmas dinner with the family. And we decorate the house inside. We can also visit the church.

    Thank you for the B-day wishes!

    Meid wat heb je een akelige tijd achter je met je keel, en dan te horen een drainage in je keel, wat afschuwelijk !
    Ik ben blij te horen dat het weer beter met je gaat.
    Nog een fijne avond.

  5. Dankjewel Mieke voor de felicitatie en je lieve woorden.

  6. Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag, Dorien :D! Hemeltje, wat heb jij een tijd achter de rug, zeg, ik hoop dat je nu gauw weer de oude bent.
    De kast die je hebt gekregen vind ik prachtig, wat een mooi stuk voor je dollshouse.
    Groetjes, Ilona

    1. Dankjewel Ilona. Het zal nog wel een tijdje duren voordat die in het poppenhuis kan staan....;-)

  7. Dorien wat een vervelende tijd zeg. Goed dat het nu achter de rug is en nog wel precies met je verjaardag! Gefeliciteerd!!!

    Ik vind je kast een hele mooie en ik ben benieuwd naar het huis en de parket vloer...

    Groetjes, Idske

    1. Dankjewel Idske. Het zal nog wel even duren voordat het huis is opgebouwd maar we gaan ons best weer doen. :-)

  8. Dear Dorien,
    Happy Birthday to you and many many wishes return! It is a very beautiful piece of furniture your husband gave you. I like to read about different cultures and the ways people celebrate Christmas! Can't wait till the 5th of December now! Mini hugs, Natalia

  9. Dear Natalia,
    Thank you for the Birthday wishes and I promise you I'll take pictures of the 5th of December....and place them on my blog. Sinterklaas has nothing with Christmas. It was a Saint that lived in Turkey many years ago. On his birthday (5th of December) he gave presents to the poor. He also has a lot of helpers. They're called Zwarte Piet...(like the elves of Santa).
