  1. This is all excellent news. Espoecially the granddaughter although I am quite certain that the cancer results are most heartening too. Having just had my first clear scan I can share that sense of relief. I wish you the merriest of christmases and a new year that brings you much love and laughter.

  2. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the time does go? It’s hard to believe so much has happened in this one year- and so wonderful that most of what has happened has, in the end, been good.

    Of course it had to be a special delight to enjoy that new grand-daughter this year! And all of us are awfully happy you were around to do it! It will be fun to follow your adventures in this coming year. Who knows what will show up in your header photo?

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Thank you Shoreacres for your lovely comment.
    You are right. In retrospect the year seems to have flown by, even though, at the time it didn’t often feel like that at all.
    Now the days are getting longer again and it cannot go on raining indefinitely (can it?!) and 2013 is only days away. Whatever the new year brings you may be sure that we will be seeking out the fun (and the humour) in every situation.
    And before I forget (yet again), the current heading picture was taken from MS Balmoral (starboard side, promenade deck) and the shadowy outline straight ahead is the island of La Gomera, in the Canary Islands. I wonder what will be in the next picture (will it be another ocean scene to please Shoreacres?).
