My little bit of this big World

There is always something to look forward to. 

This year has been better than the last few years, the family is in good health, Will loves school, George and Molly are progressing well, all three are happy souls. Our Taunton boys have grown loads and love their new home and schools. Sadly we did not see much of Josh and Sam, they are grown up busy boys. Whilst it's been another wonderful year, nothing stands out as outstanding this year, but then nothing stands out as horrible, so we are both happy.

Hubby is in good health, which at our age is always a bonus, I have no worries about him. It was lovely to travel and see his elder sister and brother, both in Newcastle, we have agreed we need too get out more, I am happy enough being at home, I can always find things to do, but we should be out more, a lovely holiday would be very nice, somewhere warm and sunny, Covid scared us inside and I have been very slow to be going places. 

The only down side has been my recent health, but with loads of test being done, and many things being checked OK, hopefully answers will soon come, I am beginning to wonder if it's stress, I have seen friends and family who with a build up of stress causes issues. Next door is leaving us alone, but there is always the underlying knowledge at any point anything will start her having a go at us, home is not the relaxing place it should be, she slams and bangs doors all day. 

I wish everyone reading this a Happy New Year, I hope it's full of laughter, happiness and fun, I don't make new year resolutions, it should never be about making a change on one day. We have few plans, hopefully a holiday somewhere sunny, and good health for both of us and our families all around the country. 


  1. A very Happy New Year and hopefully your health problem will be sorted for you. Some beautiful crafty work on your blog.

  2. What an interesting amaryllis, I look forward to seeing it bloom. I think so long as everyone is happy and healthy, that's all we can ask for. Wishing you and your family all the very best for 2023 xx

  3. Like yourselves, we haven't been getting out enough since Covid. We are homebodies, but it is good to have a change sometimes. Wishing you and your family all the best in 2023

  4. May 2023 be another happy year for your family :) xx

  5. Happy New Year to you and your family x

  6. Wishing you and your family a Happy 2023.

    All the best Jan

  7. I've never seen an amaryllis that looks like that! What a neat find. I hope 2023 brings peace for your neighbour situation; that must be so very hard.

    Happy New Year!
