As Mellors might have said to Lady Chatterley "How was it for you my dear" - ours was a mixed bag. As the Christmas tree lights failed to light (we should have checked them of course prior to elaborately arranging them on le tree) I just knew it was going to be a strange one. Son contracted a nasty case of Tonsillitis - Pooch got an explosive tummy upset, less said about that the better. I lost at everything, Trivial Pursuits, Charades, Monopoly, Cluedo - Zilch!!
I cracked the screen on my shiny red computer, Husband lent me an old one of his, the day after the battery re- charger went 'ker plunk'. I am now using one which had been consigned to that great scrapheap in the west, our spare room, it has a corrupt hard drive, so at any moment I may disappear.
But, as a New Year arrived I felt empowered and full of hope for better times ahead. My resolution is to keep 2013 light. More enjoyment, more laughter and giggles, as much as I can pack in. No list of grave and weighty character building stuff for me. I have decided I am too old to care. I want to seek out the good things, the small events, which added together make a life worth living. You have been warned!!!!
Ps I allowed my husband to trim my fringe on Christmas Eve, as I doubted I would be able to see the turkey let alone eat it. BIG MISTAKE, although I have to confess in it's own way it looked rather festive, rather like a ski run built for the foolhardy lunatic, a vertiginous slide from one side to the other, it was a talking point at least.
I am looking forward to visiting you all in Blog Land again - bring on the New Year.
