Happy Hogmanay

It is almost upon us, just as happens every year 7 days after Christmas. Yet once again the village shop was heaving with peeps buying mountains of food and gallons of booze. It is good for the store for today but they will be empty for the weekend.

I am looking forward to Fran arriving back, she should be here by 6:00 and dinner will be waiting for her, she asked for Chicken, leek and bacon pie and paprika wedges, all is prepped.
Ben has had 2 good walks and will get another after dinner, I do not have to worry about darkness as the street lights here are amazing.

I have a few seed catalogues to look through, I do not need to buy anything but enjoy flicking through them.
I was given some hand made chocolates earlier today, they look good, I have added them to the others, goodness knows when I will get around to them, I do like chocolate but am right off it at the moment.

I am not going to look back at my year, either what I have done or what I have made. There have been up and downs, highs and lows just as there has been for most.

I was going to put my favourite photo up but how do I choose, there are so many favourites. So I will jump in and pick one at random. Oops, I found 3.

I wish you all a Happy Hogmanay.

    1. Thank you Carol, I aim to search out as much happiness as there is. I made a start by taking Ben on a good walk this morning, we managed to meet and greet several other dogs and their walkers.

  14. It's very wise not to look back on the year. I will not either. Even if I tried, I don't remember things. I call it throwing the day into the sea of forgetfulness. It's rather difficult to stay angry at someone if you can't remember that you were! LOL Preferring to move forward is always the healthy choice. Happy New Year!
