well why not?

Here’s my post for New Years eve 2009, except I’m really writing this on 30th December so I’ve not been out kicking my heels up – yet.  I shall have to review my resolutions from last year and see how many I’ve stuck to.  New Years eve’s shenanigans with be blogged on New Years day (that’s if there is any shenanigans or goings on).

I will also have new ones to include, this unfortunately means getting rid of a lot of dead wood which includes  people and  a lot of time wasting at work. I’ve got better things to do with my time. I intend to become a lot more focussed, like I used to be.  There’s travel on the cards too next year and a lot of new directions that I look forward to trying.

It’s not been a bad year though.  After a  very slow start, the year seemed to get better and better as it went along.  We have a lot of work to do on the house and I have a lot of art stuff to do, which I am really looking forward to.  I hope that this blog will be going this time next year as I have completed one year already.  I still need to list my books for the reading challenge yet (and I’m still reading ‘Branwell Bronte’s Barbers tale’) but I should be OK as I read well over 6 books a year.  In fact, I wonder how many books I do read in one year?  It might be very interesting to keep a list of them next year.

Nothing left to say, except a new year – a new start and

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And…why has the formatting gone to pot on this post?

‘Winding down the year’

Posted in CHRISTMAS, PAST PLACES, WHAT HAPPENED IN VEGAS STAYS HERE!, WORDS AND COMMUNICATIONS, WRITING AND BLOGGING with tags , , , , on December 30, 2009 by echostains

Well the year’s very nearly over.  Is it just me, or does this decade seem the shortest decade ever?  It seems only yesterday that we celebrated the Millenium.  It’s frightening how life is galloping on, and the pace seems more and more frantic the older I get.

the next decade? fireworks as usual

There is a feeling of winding down as the year draws to a close, only to be fired up for a brief time , starting on 1st January 2010.  As usual, I shall start the year with good intentions , – I might even keep to my resolutions this time –  I can only hope.

Las Vegas

There are new  ideas are planned for my blog next year and there is a possibility of a music blog that my husband and I have been working on.  Not sure how that is going to work out yet, still playing with different formats.  This year has been the usual mixture of highs and lows, one of the highs being the Las Vegas wedding, and there have been quite a few lows, which I won’t go into:  suffice to say, I shall be glad to celebrate  2010, though it shall be with some trepidation because at the end of it I shall be……..lets just say older.
