Happy Chri........oh its gone !!

Well my friends its nearly over for another year ,We will soon be saying goodbye to another year and welcoming in yet another one ,it is so true the older you get the quicker it goes .

Ive been trying all day to do an entry, and add some of the many pictures,I have taken over the last few days but I cant find them !Oh I know they are there we looked at them on the slide show thingy,but when I go to add pictures for the journal I cant find them !I know Im doing something very basic very wrong !So will leave it today and try another time as Im just making myself more and more cross !

I received some lovely presents ,hope you all did too !Maurice bought me a Web Cam ,and a rather nice scarf (to wear with sweaters )not winter muffler type !I had lots of bath goodys and some rather nice stationary and £95 worth of M&S vouchers ,from various members of the family ,they know how to please me ,so I shall be dancing in the isles at M&S any day now !!Books chocs and wine ,so Im a very lucky old gal !

Yesterday morning was busy, ringing up all the family grandchildren coming onto the phone all excited ,we then went into Peterborough hospital to see a friend of Maurices who is terminally ill with cancer ,Poor Mike hes in good spirits ,and very resigned ,but so sad as we were on our way to have Christmas lunch with my eldest son and his wife Chrissy ,Mike was going to try and eat some custard ,thats about all he could tolerate !he has a syringe driver for his morphine ,and I am so pleased that pain relief is so much better controlled nowadays . We got to Mark and Chrissys were I wasnt allowed to do anything ,so just sat back and was waited on and served a delicious dinner ,it was so nice to spend the time with them ,we set of for home early evening ,didnt want to be caught in a fog ,there had been a pea souper the previous night as often is in the Fens when ,there isnt any anywhere else ,all the drains and rivers,as it happened it was a very clear night with one very bright star ,leading us home ! We had a night together in front of the tv ,though very disapointed at the stuff thats been on ,Chrissy gave me some turkey to bring home so I made another sort of Christmas dinner today,and we spent some of the time listening to new cd;s , Maurice has now gone off to work !!So Im home alone ,me and the dog ,and the tele and you all my dear friends,so talking of tele thats what Im going to do ,I might even do some knitting ,just think no cards to write, no pressies to wrap, no pressure.So on that happy note ,enjoy the evening as I plan to .

     With Love Jan xx

Thats a great thought. No pressure to do anything but just to rest and relax. Helen

You are a lucky girl Jan, sounds like a wonderful time has been had.  AOL may be playing up, trying again later normally does the trick, enjoy the rest of the evening. Rache xx

Hi Joan, I`m glad you had such a lovely time at Mark and Chrissy`s.  You have some great pressies too,  I love M&S and would enjoy having a spending spree there.  It`s very sad about your friend who is so ill, I`m glad to hear that his pain relief is controlled.  Have a nice evening.

It sounds like you had a lovely time.  Sitting in a favorite chair with knitting needles sounds wonderful.  Think I might join you.  Pennie

I love those gift cards.  I got one from WalMart, Applebee's (a restuarant here in the US), Starbucks,Gottschalks, Trader Joes and Barnes & Noble books.  It's like cash...you can get whatever you want.  No returning those gift cards that's for sure. After today's dinner for my family...I can put my feet up and relax, too. Linda in Washington state

Hi Jan, I was just thinking the same thing about no cards to write etc. I always feel at a loose end after Christmas, all that rushing about suddenly stops. I hope you find your photos soon, I'd love to see them! Have fun spending your vouchers. Jeannette.

Hi Jan - Glad you had a lovely Christmas. I spent Christmas day with some of the family, including my Grandson - hard to believe he is only 3months old, he seemed to be taking it all in and enjoying his toys.  I will be spending New Year's Eve with them too - providing the roads are not icy. I got a scarf too - a very long white fluffy one.
I will try to write an entry in my journal whilst I'm on Holiday -I'm off till the 9th Jan :-)))))
love to all your readers ;-)

Just a thought Jan, about finding your photos.  If they were the most recent thing you did, click on 'start'  then 'documents' it will bring up a list of your most recent documents.  You should be able to find your photos listed, then you can just click on it, or just hover your mouse over it and it will tell you where they have been saved - you did 'save' them, didn't you.........  ;-)
