i think we can surmise that i am too busy to contemplate, take and post daily pictures. oh well, nice thought.  here's a lovely winter sky from my run yesterday instead:

2 Jan: to do

on the upside, you can now get into my study - the flotsam and jetsam of ironing boards and clothes dryers, instrument cases and stuff-that-may-be-useful-but-only-3-days-after-you-finally-throw-it-away have been corralled into shelves and drawers, or thrown away (yes, i know).

on the downside i have several pairs of jeans that won't patch themselves.

i think i may try another one of these:

starting tomorrow obviously. can't be too rule-based you know.

happy new year

wow again. like clockwork! ha ha.

it was a very quiet new years here. i had a stomach bug so i was in bed by 930 hoping if i fell asleep i wouldn't feel so sick. luckily it was just a 24 hour one so it worked and i woke up 11 hours later feeling much better. nothing like a bout of stomach flu to make you appreciate your health.

it's been a good year in many ways - but mostly i just think about losing humph this year. i really missed him this christmas. when we put the tree up, when we cooked the turkey, and my lack of snuggle buddy for the in-between days of snacking and reading and binge-watching boxsets. on christmas day we got up and walked around the park anyways because it just seemed like the only thing to do.

but it was a good year - and next year will be too. to all our friends and family (if one can make such a distinction) happy new year. may it bring health and happiness, friendship and warmth, good food and laughter, wine and beauty.

love to you all x
