Happy New Years Eve!!!

Thursday, 31 December 2020

I would like to take this moment to thank you for sticking with me for another year around the sun 🌞!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to read my words, to like my posts and for sharing your thoughts through the comments. I appreciate it, and you, more than you can know.

It’s been a strange year but we’re making our way through it, doing the best we can. I will leave you with one of my favourite lines:

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. – Victor Hugo

I wish you a year of love, hope and creativity.

Today is the penultimate day of 2020

Between you and me, I’m getting giddy about the new year. This is not a normal reaction for me but there’s just something about saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming in 2021 that has me looking for a party hat.

Not that the pandemic is going to magically disappear at 00:01 January 1 – wouldn’t it be cool though if it did?!

Maybe it’s the hope of a new year, a blank slate, a new beginning. Although, come to think of it, we are gifted with this every day… every morning as the sun rises, we are given the gift of a new day, a blank slate, so really, there’s no need to wait for the new year…

Sunday driving on a Tuesday

Tuesday, 29 December 2020

Sometimes you just need to get out of the house, a change of pace, change in scenery, to change your course from going stir crazy. That’s what we did this afternoon…a little Sunday driving!

Well, it was a good run while it lasted

I was so caught up in watching Bridgerton on Netflix that I missed posting before midnight and ended my daily posting streak at 366 days.

In all honesty, Bridgerton has more excitement than my daily life 😉

Although, this evening I participated in solving an international kidnapping, cracking clues to access the banking information of the hostage and successfully transferring the ransom to the kidnappers, with the help of my nephews and sister-in-law. All done virtually from the comfort of our homes, thanks to Escape Manor. And it only took us an hour!
