The Last Hurrah

I'm not sorry to see the back of 2012 - it's been a hard year. Whilst the media would have us believe it's been a fantastic time, closer to home I've not seen much evidence of good things. Friends with broken marriages, job loses, having to watch every penny, prices rising faster than salaries - there's a lot of misery. The exceptions being Olympic athletes and the royal family.
The esteemed PM has admitted things are not improving, but we knew that already.
I have to hope there will be some light at the end of the tunnel in 2013, preferably not a train coming the other way.
So, in 2012, I started a blog - a start, but must try harder.
I joined a book club, but work commitments meant I couldn't get to the meetings on time. Put this one on the back burner and maybe try again in the future.
Got myself a new hobby - quilting, love this, but such a big learning curve!
2012 was also the year I turned 50. It still sounds so old.

NYE won't see me partying. I'll just let the year slip away, thankful it's over.
I haven't, strictly speaking, made any new year resolutions, but things have to change.
Einstein famously said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I'll try to remember this in 2013.
Happy New Year to all.


  1. Happy New Year and may 2013 be a better one for us all ( i think i have been hoping the ny will be better for at least the last 4 years)

  2. Hope the New Year brings the things you wish for ... if not then at least a few things that make you happy xx

    1. Yoy're always cheerful, Diane. Happy New Year to you and family. x

  3. Yes, I know what you mean, it has been a long hard year and a lot of people are much worse off at the end of this year than when they started. Hopefully 2013 will be so much better for us all.

  4. Anne, it can only get better, surely. Happy New Year to you. x
