On the first day of 2008 we have had all sorts of water adventures. Seemingly it wasn’t the just the pump playing up. Now it’s the valves. So after much gnashing of teeth we spent the day kicking the water system to get it to spring into life. Oh the joys of country living.
Having said that, I’d rather had idiosyncratic water that works than heating that doesn’t. Commiserations to the ST and RD and my nephews who have suffered in the chills of London for a few days.
I’ve decided to make many new year’s resolutions this year and just see how the year unfolds. Since 2007 was a relentless ride of schedules, milestones and goals to achieve I’m rather hoping for 2008 to be the year we just enjoy the moment.
That’s not to say we don’t have plans or things we want to achieve. But rather we’re going to take life at a more leisurely pace. Since I slept in this morning until 0640 a first for months and months the New Year is off to a good start in my book. Not so good as far as the puppies were concerned who we almost cross legged waiting to be let out!
As far as the blog is concerned, I know I have to work harder at keeping entries more regular and just for Nat, a little more spice required. I am sure that the tales of building and puppies can get a little tedious so I’ll see what I can do. Keeping a blog makes you realise how ordinary life can be but I’m sure if I look and think harder I can make even the ordinary seem special enough to share with bloggers.
At last look over 200 people a month read this blog which is an amazing number. I’m touched by the fact that people take the time and energy to catch up with all our news.
So, happy 2008 to everyone. I hope that you get all that you hope for in this special year to come.
