Reflecting Back On 2019 While Looking Forward To An Exciting New Year!

Am I affected by SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder?  I’m not sure, but

An Antique Thingy And I Don’t Mean My Mum!

I had a really enjoyable afternoon out with my mum yesterday.  She’s, let’s say…the latter side of an 80 something year young woman and we often enjoy afternoons out together.

December.  I had so much planned for this month.  It was the month I was going to ‘get on top of things’.  Get ahead with my blog that is.  I’d organised to ‘tick off’ my quite large blogging ‘To Do’ list, but then I realised Christmas is coming and takes over as priority, Santa’s on…
