.....I'm saying goodbye to blogging after today. There are a few reasons for this:
Firstly, our PC is playing up (again), then my tablet is so old that many things are not working properly on it, and my phone is so blimmin' fiddly and won't upload photos for some reason. Blogger is becoming a nightmare to use too, and a blog without photos is boring in the extreme.
I will still pop in to read other blogs when I can and will leave my blog up for a while before I delete it, so I won't disappear off the face of the earth 😃
Sincere thanks to all of you who have followed me for years. I wish you all health and happiness wherever in the world you happen to be and, above all, peace to live your life as you wish. Take great care of yourselves.
Lots of love
From our dainty little cucumbers.....
I have found that I can no longer drive comfortably in the dark, especially when there is no street lighting and some idiot is tailgating, and all I can see is his/her headlights in my rear view mirror. So I have stopped doing it. I'm sure that my developing cataracts haven't helped. This now curtails what I can do because I used to drive to our daughter's during daylight and drive back in the dark. Now it's dark by 4.30pm and I dare not risk it so it is quite exciting that we have joined the Gardeners Guild in a nearby village 😀 They meet once a month at 7.30pm and hubby drives, so I don't have to worry. When we went out last Tuesday night it was quite exciting to see all the lights on the dashboard in our car for the first time. We only bought it 7 months ago! It just shows how often we go out 😂🤣😂
Determination comes into it here because I don't want to sit at home and wait for the inevitable deterioration of old age. We are both determined to get out more even if just for a walk.
Do you have to make an effort to do things? Is it easier to do nothing?
See you tomorrow 💓x
Have you begun yet? All wrapped up? At the list stage? I'd love to know......
See you tomorrow ❤x
The music and fireworks were great but the bonfire was so wet it barely took off when lit. We arrived pretty early, just after 5pm, and the fireworks weren't lit until 8.30pm by which time we were all pretty knackered, very wet and cold and ankle deep in mud. But, hey, I was never allowed to go to a music festival in my youth so this was a new experience for me 🤣 We took spare shoes to change into for the journey home and left around 9pm (once the men in our group had pushed several vehicles out of the mud as their good deed for the day) Luckily, our foresight to park on the verge paid off and both our cars got away easily.
That will be the only time I'll be going though.....I enjoyed it, but once is definitely enough!
Birthday: it was my 74th birthday on 1st November so I think I'll stop counting now 🙄......
Back tomorrow ❤ x
It has been so long since I last wrote a post that I am struggling where to begin, so I've pinched the idea of a post a day using the letters of the alphabet for inspiration. Today's post must begin with a sincere apology: to those of you who left concerned comments on my last post , and to the bloggers whom I follow myself on a regular basis (usually, at any rate) and who have been neglected. My only excuse is that I have felt totally overwhelmed by life, health issues, family worries and world events, many of which I simply have no control over.
It's been anxiety at the root of it all. I'm still not over it but must get a grip before it swamps me completely.
I hope you are all well and ready to see me struggle to find appropriate topics each day!😂
Until tomorrow.......❤ x
