Good morning and a Happy New Year to you, whatever time you have emerged. Me, I woke at the usual time of five, having crashed out before nine yesterday evening. I was so tired but then I'd been up since four a.m. so small wonder.
I've slept like a log, have only a slightly muggy head and am ready to move on!
We had another right mixture of a day yesterday - sunshine, rain, wind . . .but no all at the same time! The next few days look like being much the same thing before cooler weather arrives.
Thank you for your lovely comments on yesterday's blog entry. In fact, thank you for your lovely comments through the whole of last year. I do try to reply to everyone although I am sure I have missed a couple from time to time.
I don't do resolutions as such but sometimes I do sort of decide it's a good time to change things around a bit and I remembered that I had decided something last New Year.
We were just in a lock down, Christmas plans had been changed, I was concerned for Dad - actually, for everyone, seeing as we seem to be a family of Covid vulnerable people, and things felt like they were going downhill rapidly.
So I decided I would make a real effort to be positive in my blogs from then on and I think I managed that quite well really, I did a real Monty Python (always looking on the bright side of life) and it helped a lot, especially as parts of 2021 turned out to be pretty upsetting one way or another.
I'm going to carry on with that because it's helped me so very much.
I've started this 'A Year With My Camera' course and I want to finish that although I've crashed rather quickly - in the second section about aperture. Oh, dear! I understand it (I think) but can't see any depth of field difference between the large and small aperture photos - not much anyway.
I'll read through again and have another go.
There are other things but I won't bore you with them now. :-)
Yesterday was lovely. Beth and Al arrived, we had a delicious dinner (though I say it myself), played games and watched DVDs. My Twelve nights gift was more smellies - a selection of bath crystals this time. I thought I had taken a photo but it seems I didn't.
Today I have three quarters plus of a turkey to 'process'. I'll enjoy that, definitely. I'm also using one of the spice mixes to make some leftover turkey curry. Yum
I have sheets to wash and, I think, some decorations to sort out, a living room to dust and sweep and ironing already in the basket.
Wishing us all a very good first day of 2022 that starts a year when things get increasingly better for us all. Thank you again for reading this blog and for all your encouragement and support.
Stay well, stay safe and be happy and content. xx
