Out with the old ...

So 2012 is finally  (thankfully) drawing to a close.  To quote the beginning of a well known novel:-

"It was the BEST of times,  it was the WORST of times...."

I've already documented in grim detail my annus horribilis so I won't go over old ground in review of 2012.

Truth is - I'm actually struggling for words.  I've never been very good at celebrating New Year.  I know one should be full of hope and excitement as the New Year dawns but in truth its just another night to me.  It holds no interest at all.  We've been invited to a couple of parties but to be honest I wouldn't inflict myself on anyone other than those who understand how I have to deal with it.  We've had a nice, quiet evening with some home made buffet food to nibble on.  The kids are doing their own thing upstairs and lovely man and I are just chilling down here in the living room watching some trashy tv.   I'm trying hard not to be introspective and gloomy and am trying hard to think of something profound to say as 2012 ends, but I am at a loss for so many reasons.

In closing, may I simply take this opportunity of wishing you and yours all the very best for the New Year.  I sincerely hope that it brings you everything you need and a little of what you want.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to visit my little space in blog land.

Love, Light and much, much Laughter.
