Boxing Day...

It's a sunny day here, although a minute ago it POURED, then it was over. Sunny again. I will try to put the washing out again. I have been thinking of my friends in the north, Viv and Ian, Liz and Gail, Ellie, and Liz, Suil, Hannah; Geraldine and Phil across the Channel, and Cari, Kyle, Becky, Blue Leaf, Amanda and Angela across the ocean, and all their families... who did I miss? I hope you stay warm over there looking towards the New Year. Any ideas for New Year Resolutions??!!! Hee!

Those of us in the South are having pretty good weather (I hope) and at the end of this week we'll be in Oz (that's Australia to you guys) and it will be HOT! We are going with a bunch of friends for the first time, and so New Year will be loud and Irish, I imagine! We're taking Steve's Irish rebel music with us!

Here we have been blessed with goodwill and great spirit, and it feels like we are so lucky. I'm going to do very little that is productive today. It's Boxing Day. It would have been Steve's mother's birthday. I never met her, she died before I came on the scene. It is sad, his parents would have just adored our family and they never met them. I guess you miss loved ones more at this time of the year. Still, hopefully they're watching from ...somewhere out there *g* - remember that song?!!

Thinking of you too! I have no ideas for New Years resolutions. What about you over there?

Resolutions? I really want to make some this year, and keep to them. I think it's valuable, you get a chance to reinvent yourself, or add to yourself, or just improve in some way. I know I always need to be doing that. So this way, it's kind of formalised, if you admit to what you need to do. It doesn't have to be public, but if there really is room for improvement or change, this is a good time to give it a go! I know I need more patience, need to not put things aside that need doing... I'll think about it before we go on holiday! And I'll look forward to what you might come up with *g*

Yeah, I'll let you know what I come up with. I think I remember this conversation from last year, how nice the new year is. A built in new start that you're forced to make. I like it!

It fits in with us particularly because it's the end of the academic year as well, so everything starts afresh at the end of January!
