Monday 3 January 2011


Since we arrived home a week ago I have been vacilating between being busy and/or lethargic. Coming back to grey skies and cold weather again was quite a shock after enjoying blue skies and temperatures of 25C for 10 days over Christmas.

My reaction was to wrap the warmth of the house around me for comfort and veg out in front of the TV, venturing out only to enjoy a traditional Christmas Lunch with my grandaughter and her family with the odd foray out to take my greatgranddaughters to the cinema and fetch more provisions, mainly desperately needed chocolate. Proving, once again, that if you want to get a job done ask a busy man. You certainly shouldn't expect a lazy woman to write a blog!!

When I mentioned all this to my good friend DogLover this is what he replied "As for laziness, I have an idea that everyone thinks himself lazy and has a conscience about it. Some are very lazy (like me) while others are 99% energetic. I think you're the latter!" Isn't that cute? Wrong, but cute.

But tomorrow things get back to "normal" and I have to get my ass into gear again (thank goodness for that).

So what will the new year bring you all? Excitement? New beginnings? Fulfilment? Heartache? Whatever, I hope you all rise to the mixed experiences and challenges with joy, fortitude and courage. And to begin the year with a laugh, this was sent to me by my good friend DogLover. It has a certain ring of scary truth, don't you think?

Happy 2011 to you too!!
You didn't lose your sense of humour while you were away then!! Lazy, you? I very much doubt it.
But I do know what you mean about vacilating between busy and lazy - I started a clearout of younger daughter's room 3 days ago, got half done and am still recovering!
Chocolate is the only way to get through January.
Good to see you back, with your airbag I hope!

Happy New Year. I would imagine grey Britain is such a depressing contrast to where you have been! Happy New Year!
