I don’t know about you but I’m feeling a little short changed by 2011. It’s been a good year in so many ways but it has passed in a flash and I don’t feel I’m done with it yet. But that’s time for you, running away at its own pace.
As we end 2011 under a large black cloud and pelting rain I’m in no mood for positive reflection nor inspiring new year’s resolutions. I know I shouldn’t complain but the temperature drop of 15 degrees has been a shock to my system. I’d rather be facing my gargantuan harvest of strawberries with a large dollop of ice cream and a grin like a Cheshire cat. Instead I’m wondering how wet I might get if I dashed out and brought in some rhubarb and make a crumble with them instead.
It can’t rain forever, can it? No, really?
Whatever the weather, I hope that the transition to 2012 will bring you high hopes for great things in the coming year. My head is brimming with ideas and aspirations for the rest of the summer and indeed for 2012 but right now I feel I need all my energy to stay warm as a southerly brings us a polar chill.
Whatever you are doing this New Year’s Eve it’s full of good things and cheer.
