Sunday 30th December

So this morning was a very slow morning and it was partly due to waking up at silly o'clock.  I decided to read and finished my latest Scarpetta and I found it disappointing.  Why do some writers go into such detail as if they are trying to either tell me what they know or what they have managed to research.  I would buy a technical manual or internet it if I really wanted to know....grrrrr.  

Weather this morning is cold, cloudy, damp, but dry when my neighbour came with three pancake thingies her little face was frozen and she had a  warm from the fire before she set sail to her house.  Still in my PJ's at ten when she arrived but I'd managed to strip the beds and had two loads of washing drying.  What I love about my washing machine is that it has a thirty five minute programme and a 1200 spin so no dripping stuff around...straight up to the upstairs bathroom.  The 'nest' was demolished, everything washed and all ready for the Librarian for the new year.  I've even made another fleece quilt so that there is no danger of me freezing when I take to the upstairs bedroom while she can be down.

Looked down the garden and realised that the fence was leaning inwards so now supports put in place with thumping great nails.....I still want to maintain a bovine free zone   Came back indoors and finished the gloves and stitched them up and will deliver them tomorrow when I'm in Djebel.  Just got a little shopping to do ...top up on wine to see the new year in tomorrow.

Lovely surprise this morning...a 'holiday' gift from 'baa Humbug' since he doesn't believe in that word that I can't possibly use in the same sentence.  I shall probably invest in a ton of 20p books from that well known supplier.  Sorry about the weather Tabs....we seem to have little control over it but it's so much better when it's completely wintery.....LN....I'm back to the fire....LN

Monday 31st December

OK Linda..just cus you live at the other side of the world...and could get there first....I'll say Happy New 2013 to everyone who chooses to look at this page and to those that don't.  I've had a beautiful meal with my Librarian, the temperature is up tonight so the fire is belting out and warming the house through and through.  Now you know I'm not a pet lover but my heart went out to my Librarian's dog that would have been destined to enjoy it or not enjoy it by himself while she was embibing.  He is curled up in front of my woodburner and it's a first for me.

So into the New Year....may I just add that I wish you all that you would wish for yourselves but be careful what you wish for.

I'd like to add a thought for 2013......there are no wrong actions...the problem comes if you use the wrong action at the wrong time so I'd like to share these with you .  They will give you something to think about:

    Keeping silent  -  speaking out
    Receptivity  -  resistance to influence
    Obeying  -  Ruling
    Humility  -  self confidence
    Lightening like speed  -  circumspection
    To accept everything  -  to be able to differentiate
    Ability to fight  -  peace
    Caution  -  courage
    To possess nothing  -  to command everything
    To have no ties  -  loyalty
    Contempt for death  - regard for life
    Indifference  - love



Again nothing is wrong...it's just a matter of using the right action at the right time and I owe the above to Elizabeth Haich....and her book has now been republished and available from Amazon...LN....I'm off for another glass of the red...again...Happy New Year....

Happy new year Elsa. Hope it brings you happiness love and good health. We are sitting in with a poorly 10 day old puppy with a bad tum tum. Nice cuddles though.  Cant wait to get over there. Ln
