Starting to get my tried and tested recipes for Christmas and New Year entertaining into one file - not my forte. I first posted this way back in 2010 and it's still a family and friends' favourite.

These can be served with a salad, dip etc., just experiment, they are very versatile.

Cheese and Mint Balls Recipe
Serves 4

50g bread crumbs
150g crumbled feta cheese
3 Tbsp finely chopped mint
Mix together.

Separately in a bowl, whisk 2 egg whites until stiff and fold into the feta mix and season. Divide the mixture into 12 and roll into balls, please don't roll so well as to have golf balls. Refrigerate the balls for 1 hour.

Pour enough sunflower oil/your choice of oil into a deep pan just enough to cover the balls. Fry the balls for 3 - 5 minutes until golden brown.

Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with a little fresh mint - serve.

I am so far behind on sending out thank you notes. I was really out of it for several weeks. I was so out of it for quite a while that I have my greeting cards so mixed up. I am still looking for a greeting card from someone with the last name of Pigg. Would that person send me their email address so I can thank them? I am so sorry that I opened cards and got them so mixed up. I do appreciate all the cards that were sent to me.

Several days ago I fell out of my bed.  I have fallen out of my bed twice in my life.  Both times in since my kidney operation. 
The first time I fell on the opposite left side and didn't hurt my self.  The second time I fell on my right side and have bruises all over my body.  I am going into the doctor tomorrow because my right side and kidney area started hurting and hasn't stopped.  I feel so stupid because I fell out of bed and don't know how I did it. I have been sleeping in the same bed for the last 10 years and not once did I have a problem falling out of bed until the last week.
