First post of 2018 is from my “This Makes Me Ridiculously Happy” file.
No resolutions to share, no words to spare. It’s my birthday, the sun is shining, and Clanadonia is “the whole nine yards”.

Thanks for being part of the soundtrack of my life ❤

Now honey around you
I’m feeling so good
‘Cause you picked me up out of the rough
And you polished me up and made me brand new
Overall 2016 wasn’t bad, other than the loss of so many wonderful, talented people and many of them still so young. In my own little corner, I spent far less time on the Interwebs, focussing on my expanded family and home, reconnecting with special people (yes, this is for you Rew!), my extended family and working out as much of the residual ‘stuff’ of previous years as possible. Let it never be said that I have baggage – I may have a carry on but I prefer to think of it as a tool kit of experience.
As to resolutions, again this year I won’t. You don’t have to either. Do your best throughout the year, it’s all we can ask of ourselves and each other. Life has enough challenges for us without our feeling obligated to (potentially) overextend.
From my family to yours, much love, and sending you all a wish for health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year.
