Happy New Year! - Update!

Well here it is! We have reached the last day of 2014 and are looking forward to the New Year and wondering what it will bring.

Have you made any New Year resolutions? I have only made one - I am going on a diet! Yes I expect a few more of you have made the same resolution and probably a few more. But the problem is, will we all keep them?

I certainly hope to lose some weight and, the idea is, because I have only made one resolution I am going to stick with it! I will let you know how I get on during the next couple of months.

Of course I could state that I am going to keep my office tidy next year. It does tend to get very untidy. I have never been a tidy person, but somehow my office seems to get more messed up that anywhere else in the house. I could also say that I am going to knuckle down and get another novel finished in 2015. I seem to have been dragging my heels over that this year. But if I add too many resolutions I simply won't be able to keep them all, so that's why I am sticking with the one. Writing the novel, and tidying the office will just have to come naturally - of their own accord, so to speak.

I also hope to see a little more of our lovely nephew this year. He is growing so fast and it is more noticeable to us as we don't manage to get down to see him very often. But apart from that, and good health for all my family, I don't think I want too much more out of 2015

So what have you all got planned for the New Year? I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to spare.

In the meantime I think that's all for from me for this year except to say Stop by my website sometime -

I wish you all a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2015

Happy Christmas

I can't believe that Christmas is almost upon us once again. How the years are starting to fly by. On the other hand, perhaps they have been doing that for a long time and I have only just started to notice. That's what they say, isn't it? The older you get, the quicker the years seem to pass. I didn't used to believe that, but I do now.

I guess you are all ready for Christmas now. Presents bought and wrapped, Christmas lunch organised, in fact I expect you are sitting back waiting impatiently for it all to happen. I suppose I am, really. I have just wrapped the last present. Though truthfully we don't have many people to buy for, not having had any family. So, in one way, Christmas is usually very quiet for us now. However there was a time when we held lots parties, inviting all our friends and had the most wonderful time.

I think they have finally finished digging up the pavements in Kelso. I hope so. It has gone on long enough. The Christmas tree is standing in its usual place in the Town Centre and there are lights strung along the buildings. But I have to say, the lights this year are not a patch on other years. There used to be strung across the road at intervals, making the town look really festive. Perhaps the council have run out of money this year.

I think that is all moment. If something wonderful should happen, rest assured I will be back to tell you all about it.

Meanwhile, I do hope you all have a Wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2015

Cheers everyone!!

I Haven't Deserted You!

No, I haven't deserted you all. It's just that I haven't had anything to tell you. But on the other hand, when do I ever? I usually muddle along, talking about everything and nothing all at the same time. You must be in a daze when you move on from my blog.

My life lately has been in the slow lane.... the very slow lane. Nothing has happened, nothing worth blogging about, anyway. Even the upheaval in the town seems to have come to an end. Though you wouldn't know it. The car parking situation is as bad if not worse than ever. I avoid the town centre as much as possible, which is a shame as there are lots of quaint shops to be found.

My husband and I are going to see our lovely niece and her husband soon, as well as their gorgeous son, Christopher. We don't see them very often, so I suppose Christopher will have forgotten who we are. But he is such a friendly little man, I'm sure he will soon remember.

You might recall me telling you about my new website. I would be grateful if you would all pop over there now and again.

Well I think that is all for the moment.
Just in case I don't get back to you, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2015
