I just made the mistake of reading the information page before clicking on "New Post", something of course I have never bothered to do before and I have to admit I had no idea what it said, it made absolutely no sense whatsoever. I know how to post a blog, i.e. bash the little keys up and down and I can even load pictures but all that other stuff, lists of fellow bloggers, adding on funny asides etc. is beyond me and that is why I decided to investigate further by reading THAT page but am none the wiser!
Anyway, I have made it safely to the other side of the big "C", obviously few pounds heavier, many dollars lighter and have to say it doesn't quite have the magic? joy? not sure what but something is missing. A definite sense of anticlimax after those weeks of stressing about presents, food etc. I received a card from my brother telling me I had bought two vaccinations for some children in Sierra Leone and honestly felt that was the best money spent on me this year. It is nice to get new slippers, a lovely nightie, gift cards to spend but I don't need those things. The light has dawned - it was lovely to get together our small family network this side of the Atlantic and have a lovely meal and a few drinks but next year instead of our Christmas lists, I think I will encourage my nearest and dearest to consider who we should really be spending our Christmas dollars on.
What a confusing post, a bit all over the place today but what the heck.........wishing all my new cyber friends a peaceful and happy 2008.
