Happy New Year
This post is wishing you all a healthy and Happy New Year. I read some of your lovely greetings last night. I know I'm a little sad spending New Years Eve 'blogging' - but hey I've learnt that 'whatever floats your boat' is good.
The town we live in has a big reputation for being a great place to be at New Year. It was even mentioned in the Times newspaper in the lead up to the millenium as the third best place to be!! The big attraction is that everyone who turns out is in fancy dress - young and old alike. You really are the odd one out if you don't dress up. It really is very entertaining. The local charity shops do a roaring trade in the lead up and you can often find some great 'vintage material' in the garments labelled for 'fancy dress'.
So what did me and mine dress up as I here you ask? Well apart from my youngest of 17(who went out with a group of friends as the cool looking Men in Black) the rest of us snuggled down in front of the log burner and watched a couple of good movies. Oh yes and as I said I managed a little blogging on the other half's laptop.
New Years resolutions.... I'm never too good with these but now I'm in my 50's I seriously believe if you have good health as a foundation the rest will follow (if it's important enough).
That said I have some things to sort and deal with as a matter of priority and will be working on this list as from today. As a Piscean I am generally not too good at making decisions so that's where I will be going first. Anyone know of a good Master class??
Finally to you all I echo the thoughts of many bloggers when I say Thank You for letting me join you in this really good place called Blogland. I am learning to be brave and open up (new to me) and your feedback is always so pleasing to receive. I have made many lovely, new friends amongst you and have felt inspired by your wealth of creativity. So....
A BIG BIG THANK YOU FROM ME TO YOU
