Some good news this afternoon. My friend’s daughter, Sally, has awoken from her coma and is breathing unaided. She will have a long journey of recovery ahead but is making small steps of progress every day.
We will be celebrating New Year’s Eve at home. Paul is cooking pizza and we have plenty of booze and films to watch (Sarah and Kat are making serious inroads into our stash of French wine). I suspect I may be asleep on the sofa by midnight. I’m hoping there won’t be too many fireworks going off in the neighbourhood, Rick was spooked by one a few nights ago and ran hell for leather all the way home with Paul hanging grimly on to the other end of his leash.
I shan’t be sorry to say goodbye to 2017 although it’s been fairly kind to Paul and me. Highlights of the year were our trip to Spain, adopting Rick and having the girls stay with us in France during the summer. Next year is going to be a challenge, our search for a new home in the UK will be both exciting and daunting. I’m sure we will have some problems and big decisions to make along the way.
On a lighter note I have been awarded a commendation by Yorkshire Pudding’s Laughing Horse Awards – such fun!
May I take this opportunity to thank all my readers for following my blog and wish you all a very Happy New Year!
