A New Year

2010 wasn't really one of my better years.  I could write pages now about everything that's gone wrong but I won't because I have much to be thankful for.   .  So many people are far worse off than me.

2011 is full of hope.   I have so much to look forward to this year. The birth of my second grandson is due in April, around the time of my first grandson Billy's 2nd birthday, and I plan to be there for both events.

I won't be making any resolutions...I never have done..because I rarely stick to them.  I prefer to make them at other times of the year, as and when the time is right.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?  Do you stick to them? 



  1. What a lovely header to your post!

    Wishing you both all the very best for hasn't got to us yet.

    No I don't make point as I'd never remember what they were unless i wrote them down.

  2. I'm wishing you the best of the coming year Linda. You are most courageous, determined and hopeful of anyone I know which just gives me someone to emulate!

  3. Fly: Ah yes..remembering resolutions..that's a problem!

    Thankyou xxx

    Charlotte Ann: Very kind words which I'm sure I don't deserve...but thankyou xxx

  4. Happy New Year!!! I make resolutions but never do them all that once. They are more things that I'm going to work on gradually in the new year. I hope 2011 is a very good year for you. :)


  5. Thankyou Terri and I wish the same for you xx

  6. Happy new year to you as well. Sorry to hear 2010 didn't go so well. Hope 2011 is a lot better for you.

  7. Lets hope that 2011 will be kind to us all.
    Happy New Year! A fresh beginning!

  8. I made one resolution this year, just the one, so I can focus on getting it right.
    My wish for you for 2011 is that life is kinder for you. That life is easier, in some small way and that if doors don't open as you wish, at least you'll find a window unlocked and can achieve what you need that way.
    I wish you both joy, and peace and most of all security.
    I think I'll wish that for myself, as well.
    Happy New Year 2011 from Rostrenen to Milas.

  10. Happy new year Ayak am sure this one will be better than the last for you. I have made a few resolutions but hmmm will I stick to them ... watch this space lol xx

  11. Bomb: Here's hoping for a better 2011. Good luck with the resolutions xx

  12. I kind of made two resolutions, and they will work because they are scheduled already..Actually both of them don't exactly count as resolutions, the timing just happened to be the new year :) But i must say the new year was a motivation to make me take the necessary steps :)
    Hope your 2011 goes much better. Wish you much luck, and happiness!

  13. The Bug: Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. Good luck with your resolutions and a very Happy New Year to you xx

  14. 'Cross the Pond: Thankyou...and to you too xx

  15. Following your blog, i know that last year didn't really work out for you. i hope things get much better in this new year.

    and about resolutions, i can say that im very stable on this one, and i always have the same resolution for every year: lose some fat.
