Good afternoon, sitting here wondering what I am going to write today my first entry of the New Year.
The New Year is such a non event nowadays compared with what it was a few years back. I commented in young Leigh’s journal yesterday saying I thought a lot of the New Years demise is due to the big street parties in the big cities. In today’s paper one of the columnist was saying the same thing. We used to spend the New Year with our families and our neighbours. Yesterday I only say one person passing our window all day I see more than that on a normal day (the chap did not even have a coat on and it was pouring rain). We used to visit neighbours with our shortbread and our bottle of whatever and had a great time staying a while with each one now all that has gone.
In the past year especially we have been hearing so much about global warming and trying to save our planet. I am not trying to be a spoilsport but do you really think that sending millions of pounds worth of fireworks into the sky is helping I don’t think so, I think not only is it causing more pollution it is also a terrible waste of money. Its not only this country that does this it now seems to be the norm I think the money could well be spent in more beneficial ways. I don’t suppose anyone will agree with me but these are my thoughts.
Poor Stuart not only has he got this shoulder/neck pain but today he has added toothache to his list of woos as well, poor Stu he is having an awful time hopefully he will get an appointment tomorrow with our dentist.
Normally by now we have been out for a long walk and started our New Year of bird watching but with the weather not being very good and Stuart being under the weather we have not been out yet other than me walking round for a paper this morning I could not persuade Stuart to come with me which is very unusual hope things will improve after he sees the dentist. One thing the pain killers will have two jobs to do now hope they are up to it and know where to go.
I think that’s about it for today so till next time, LoveJoan.
