1. Jan, 2017


Sad to see 2016 go? Can't say I am.  We seem to have lost so many people who have made us smile for years, and there has been so much sadness and terror in the world that every news item has been grim.

All we can hope is that 2017 is better!

Do you have a new year tradition? Resolutions, maybe? Get in touch with family and friends? Mine is simple.  I take down last year's calendar, and before it goes in the bin I check through to see what I've been up to in the last year. You get to my age, and you need a reminder or two! It seems we had a few health issues (and my poor dog had to lose a toe. Ouch!) and looking at the appointments, we were busier than I remembered. Had more visitors as well. Wonder what I'll think in a year's time when I look again?

I sincerely hope that 2017 is a good year for you. Peace, health and prosperity upon all your houses.
