Counting down the hours until we can tip-i-toe out of 2010 here - don't tell 2010, but we never exactly hit it off.
Don't get me wrong - there have been moments of joy and moments of mirth (mostly black humour) but it has been hard work finding the gems. Thank goodness I have children!!!
Just to remind me not to get above myself in this 2010 world, I overruled V in the "is it more auspicious to mow before the year is through" debate, but the mower (okay, and the soggy lawn) sided with him.
Instead, I shall take my frustration out on the weeds (of which there are many, and make such a satisfactory sound as they escape the sucky soil), clutter (we are filling a car to take to the donation centre for the flood victims) and kicking any negative 2010 type thoughts to the back corner of my mind in case they should try and blight these last 12.75 hours.
2011 - now that is another matter.
2011 I have plans for. I know. Never been attempted properly before, but 2011 is going to be littered with goals and dreams.
I hope everyone has a joyous and safe New Year.
And 2011 - be seeing you soon.
