First entry of 2007

A Very Happy New Year Everyone

Yes, here we are again everyone ,now like alot of you 2006 left ,and as it went ,had me wondering where ?,It seems no time at all since I was doing my entry for January 1st last year and saying ,that my New Year Resolution was to learn to add graphics I had been saving them for ages mostly ones Donna was offering .Donna very kindly talked me through it and I havent looked back...... Once again Donna THANKYOU !

  It was a good year ,thinking back ,for Maurice and I ,Maurice got his promotion and is in line for another ,his shift pattern is a bit crazy but we have had some great days out on his days off and I have adjusted ,to my time with him when ever it falls ! I joined the over sixties club and the WI ,had some nice days out and good meetings. And am looking forwardto next years programe .Iwent back to the company I used to work for,on the news letter team ,and also joined the complaints and compliments committee ,we went to London and Karen and I met  Bob the Chelsea  pensioner,at Portcullis house.

In May last year AOL invited me to be silver surfer of the week,which was exciting and I met lots of new friends  ,and I am still on the page under Blogs in a list of ten blogs .In September we all did a tribute to a victim of September 11th and Maurice and I took forty nine year old married ,and father of two, John Santore  ,to our hearts ,and I know all of the journalers who did similar tributes were as affected as I was .When journals became three years old ,we celebrated ,two very clever Steves compiled pictures of us all so that we could look at each other and see who we were writing to,and what our friends look like  .

And I cant miss this opportunity to thank every one again,for voting for Jan at Serendipity,'Lady of the Blog ' I felt so proud .and thanks have to go to the girls who worked so hard to make this a success......I am looking forward to this coming year hearing about you all and sharing some more entrys with you ,Thankyou to all the girls who make my journal a more colourful place with their lovely graphics.I want to wish you all A Happy Healthy, Prosperous New Year  ,God Bless You All and Love from

Happy Newy Year to you and your family Jan.  You managed to get some good photographs off the TV, wasn't it a fabulous display?  I kept thinking how glad I was that I was in the warm and not on the cold Embankment!  But spent a few New Year's Eves in Trafalgar Square in the Sixties!
Lovely graphics and a nice summary of 2006!
All the best
Freda

Happy New Year Jan!  Loved the summary of your year's events.  Also loved the photographs!  I was right there with you watching the fireworks around the London eye from looking at your pics.  I want to learn how to add graphics to my journal as well. I know how to add a picture, but want to learn more!
all the best to you and yours in 2007!

I know it seems impossible that another year is here. 2007 was so far away this time last year. May you and yours have a very blessed and Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you Jan & Maurice. May 2007 bring you lots of love, happiness and wealth. I was watch the New Year celebrations on the BBC last night with my Nan. Weren't the fireworks amazing? I bet the atmosphere in London last night was brilliant. I would have loved to have been there!

Best wishes,
Leigh :-)

Happy New Year Jan,  Maybe since I'm retiring in February I'll have time to learn the graphics thing too.  It seems after working all day, I'll just barely have time to read my alerts and post an entry from time to time.   I didn't even stay up to watch the fireworks from Seattle.  I was so tired...take care and have a good first day of the year.  Linda in Washington

Happy new year Jan and Maurice. It's been a great year meeting new friends on the journals and talking to you by phone! Let's hope one day this year we can meet up! You did get a lot accomplished last year didn't you?! I hope this year will be even better for you. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

2006 was definitely a wonderful year for you, Jan!  As I look back, most of my year was great.  LOL at adding graphics and pictures to journals.  It took me no less than two weeks to learn this.  Donna has been a God send to me as she has generously taught me so many new things in the world of PSP and graphic making.  Blessings to you and your family in this new year.  Love xx Chris
