The eve of a new year

Well, like lots of folks I am wondering what this coming new year  will bring.

Have to say the last year has not been the easiest for my immediate family.  DH is ill which is the hardest thing for us all, him especially.  Perhaps I am stronger than I know as we are still plodding along and finding new ways to cope and to care for each other.

I have not been as active on this blog as I originally intended.  Suppose I feel like an elastic band at the moment as in fairly stretched.  Any mental energy have is consumed on the family right now so I know you will understand.

On the plus side we have strengthened friendships and made new ones.  When the chips are down you certainly discover the real treasures in both family and friends.  You know who you are and we are truly blessed by and grateful for your loving support.

On the weight loss front I am doing ok if you discount this last week (well it is Christmas!)  My loss  to date  is 18lb.  So I will carry on cutting back and try and to increase my exercise.  2010 sees me hitting 50 and I am so not going to be fat and 50.

So all that remains for today is to wish you all that you would wish for yourselves in the coming year – to include, but not exclusively, health, happiness and the love of friends and family
