I know I'm always going on about this - but I just wanted to say it one more time before the end of the year. I'm talking about luck. My luck. I am one of the luckiest people alive. This year has shown me what truly lovely people are all about. I am so very very lucky because amongst my sphere of influence I have some of the nicest people alive.
Dan is home at the moment and I just simply adore her. She makes me laugh so much - today - we've been to Fiona's to help with the present wrapping and make our food shopping lists. We watched 'It's a wonderful life' and just never stopped laughing, at each other, with each other and at the world and the situation in general. Fiona has been my absolute rock this year - together with Liz, and Su. I must almost mention Mrs Morris who has dried more tears than should be legal and listened to me droning on and on every Friday night since the early spring....the eyes are now dry and the droning has been replaced by laughter - and I hope that our Friday nights continue until we're too old to go out without assistance. This week also I have been the grateful recipient of a massive act of kindness. I am so very, very grateful to you...you know who you are.
Also on my 'Thanks to You' list is Jopa, Bill, Ches, Nicola , Katie, Christian, Victoria, Helen and Andrew, Helen and Ernie, Kim, Moya and Lisa and Lisa, and many, many more.
Every single day I am surrounded by love, warmth and kindness from all of these lovely folk. All of them have been there for me when I have needed them. Without question. I am amazed by the love.
My dearest friends...I want to thankyou from the bottom of my heart for being there for me this year and I want to wish you all a very very happy Christmas.
