Christmas is passing by and the bells of the New Year will ring out

As the Christmas festivities come to an end and the New Year steps in I always come to think about the years that have passed and what the future holds. I don't know about you but I hate saying goodbye, and I especially hate saying good bye to another year.

But on the brightside of things it is also a fresh start. I have a big list of new year resolutions - many associated with most importantly my family, my community, my shape (ugggh - not that one again!) and all those unfinished projects (I have thousands). I think tackling a new skill would be good too..... but lets see which one gets started first!

Happy Hogmanay, Happy New Year and look forward to 2007!

Happy New Year to your too.
I know what you mean about saying goodbye, but I've got very good feelings about 2007. I hope you manage to stick to all those resolutions!

I actually never have trouble saying goodbye to a year gone by. I love a new year, it's like a fresh start or a "do-over". I too have a good feeling for 2007, which I'm hoping is a good thing because I've never thought that way about a new year approaching. As far as resolutions go, mine always seem to be the same year after year. They're all similar to yours too. :)

Hi, thanks for "stopping by"! just wanted to say that the nice thing about the swaps is that everyone seems genuinely pleased with whatever you send, its a "low pressure, just have fun" kind of thing!
bye for now,

Yes, it can be a very nostalgic, wistful time of the year. But as you say, it's great to make plans for the year ahead. I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year and I look forward to reading your blog too! Clare x
