Well it’s New Years Eve, and the weather is miserable and damp, ideal for staying home, which I am doing this evening, the days of going out ‘first footing’ for me are well and truly over. I will go to bed at around my usual time of 10.30 pm and hopefully sleep through, then waken up to find it is 2012. and I’ll be approaching my 75th year. cor doesn’t time fly? I suppose like everyone else I will have a few nostalgic moments of reminiscing or years gone by, hopefully I won’t get too tearful, as it’s one area in which I am sentimental, but then they say all old folks get that way, so as long as i’m doing what the rest does, I shan’t worry too much.
I do often think of the days when my girls were little and of my dogs which have passed on.
I went to the library yesterday to stock up on a few books, I’ve got back into a phase of reading historical novels, Just finished reading one about Lady Jane Grey a grand niece of King Henry V11th, she ruled for 9 days and was beheaded at 16, due to the ambition and ruthlessness of her parents, it was a damn good read and has whetted my appetite for more of the same that I may not have read, It was a fascinating period in English history., not a time to be up there with the Royals, as one wrong word, innocent or not could land you in the Tower or worse.
Have any of you got a kindle? I don’t know if it would suit me, as I just love the feel and physicality of a book, looking at the cover and wondering what magical delights [or not] is inside. But then I’ve never handled a kindle, I could be judging them wrongly.
It’s almost time to take the dogs out, again, but at least the nights are getting a teeny bit lighter, so I can go out a tad later each week.
My younger daughter phoned this morning inviting me to come over to-morrow for late lunch, so that will be nice, and will help pass the time.
Catch you all later. BTW I haven’t wished anyone a Happy New Year as traditionally in Scotland we do it ‘after the bells’ that is 12 midnight to-night.
catch you all later.
