goodbye 2009 - hello 2010

This time last year we were in blissful ignorance of what life had in store for us in 2009.  I won't pretend that the last eight months have been easy.  However, somehow we have battled through it, supported and buoyed up by the love, care and good wishes of family, friends and neighbours. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Who knows what the next 12 months will bring?  There will be ups and downs for sure, as always. However, we'll aim to make the most of life, enjoy the things that are important to us, try to keep in touch with people and to maintain a positive attitude.  

Yesterday we picked up the forms to renew Steve's passport which expires shortly. Now that's what I call positive thinking! Jon and Sally helped us see out the last few hours of 2009 in style with a splendid meal. We stayed up to see in the New Year and the arrival of our first footers - two of Katie's friends who stayed over.  We look forward to welcoming those who can make it here tomorrow night and will raise a glass or two to absent friends. We will catch up with you in 2010 - and that's a promise!

The sun is shining brightly as I write, so time to blow the cobwebs away with a walk I think, before thinking about preparations for tomorrow and plans for the coming months.  

May you all have a happy and healthy New Year :-)  

Happy anniversary, Andrew and Jan - enjoy your trip to The Globe!
