The Very Best for 2006

I saw the old homestead ,and people I loved .  I saw Englands valleys and hills ,  I listened with joy as I did when a boy,  to the sound of the old village bells ,  Oh the log was burning brightly , Twas a night that would banish all sin , For the bells were ringing the old year out ,    and the new year in . 

A very Happy, Healthy ,blessed new year to you all, my J land friends .

Maurice is working today ,so was up at four thirty ,He went to bed at around ten thirty only to be woken by the bells ringing through our little Market town ,at eleven thirty last night ,and then the fireworks at eleven ,fourty five untill twelve thirty ,He didnt complain bless him ,and said he thought they would have an easy ish day ,I hope so ,I rang him earlier he says hes OK !!

We didnt go out last evening ,though we did ride through to Huntingdon in the morning ,now the snow has gone from the roads ,thankgoodness it went quite quickly didnt it ?

The sound of the church bells last night ,reminded me of the song I started off with (of course one my Dad used to sing ),and I got all ,daft ...you know happy and sad ,sad and happy .Soppy Cow  ! 

Any New Year resolutions any one? Im going to learn to do graphics ,  I dont mean make them oh no no no ! just apply them ,to learn where Ive put stuff  Ive saved ,as you see Ive learned to snag ,sort of !Donna talked me through that one ,well she did put my name on it LOL I know I know !its in pictures ,but at least I got it  from her journal to mine !! So that is an achievement in it self ,I feel Ive come along way since my first entry on September the first ,I remember how I trembled as I pressed save that day ,then I emailed Jeannette whod been encouraging me to do it , and well the rest as they say is history ,except that I have made so many lovely friends .Im going to finish now cause Im getting all choked ,cus your all brill ,Bye for now with a lorra lorra luv ....Jan xx

You are not the only one, Jan, to do the happy and sad bit; I had to fight back the tears big time last night at midnight.....I get so emotional, fortunately Rob knows what I am like so he was keeping an eye on me even though he was on stage at the bells. I get angry with myself for being like that but I always have been so can't change now! Love to you both, Joan

Happy New Year  to you and family. I have been trying to remember the name of the brilliant garden centre on the outskirts of Huntingdon that I used to visit when up that way.  I know Frosts took over the one near the airforce base....  I think for 2006 I would like to have my memory back!!!

Hi Jan, happy new year. I didn't know you couldn't put graphics on through file manager. It's everso easy when you know how!! I'll email you the instructions if you want them. I think the new year makes everyone a bit emotional doesn't it?! Jeannette. http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels

Have a nice day! Helen

We must all be a sentimental lot in J-land. You get so choked up reading journals you get so involved with whats happening to your friends.  Happy New Year to both of you Love Joan.

Happy New Year Jan!
Couldn't hear any church bells over the sound of so many explosive fireworks going on all around us!  They were like cannons - the poor cats were terrified.  I love fireworks, but prefer the pretty, silent ones!
Poor Maurice getting so little sleep and having to work on New Years Day!  I shut the alarm off and stayed in bed until I was ready to get up :-))))
Happy New Year Everybody!
Freda

A Wonderful New Year to you and Maurice my dear :o)
I started my journal on the 1st September too, though it was the year before, our journals still share the same Birthday!!  
New Years resolutions... hmm... I want to lose weight and give up smoking, but might not accomplish both in one year lol!
