Why hasn’t she written anything for a while?

I doubt if anyone has been eagerly awaiting my next offering but sometimes as I sit doing nothing or playing with Lola or looking at Twitter, I think, “I could be writing something for my blog but – what could I write about?”

Sitting here this evening I decided to say hi to you all and sorry for not doing more. Truth be told, I have been far more interested (horrified, worried, etc) about what Trump is doing than in communicating with all my friendly readers. People this side of the Atlantic aren’t nearly so engrossed, for example, in the Impeachment Hearings.

It’s just over three weeks to Christmas. Last Christmas and the two or three months leading up to it, weren’t happy or jolly. There wasn’t really meal planning for the family, Christmas shopping for gifts and decorations, or carols, mince pies or mulled wine. My mother-in-law was going through an illness from which she didn’t recover, and Julian and I were doing our best to make things easy and comfortable for her in the home she’d lived in for around forty years.

This year we’re in our own, slightly expanded, home (more about which in the next post.) We’re expecting a few family members and a couple of friends to spend a day or three laughing, reminiscing and celebrating Christmas 2019. At some point, no doubt, we’ll raise a glass to absent family, particularly Angela (mum-in-law), who was always there for us when we needed help and was the person who kept me going with my painting when everyone else just laughed at my attempts. She is sorely missed and was much loved.

Thanks to all of you who have read and appreciated my posts. I hope your Christmas/holiday time is joyful and full of good cheer! And, even though it’s not happening for a whole month, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Just yesterday, I was wondering why I have not been getting emails for your new blog writings and if my account has been deleted or something happened to the notification. I see your retweets on twitter though you’re less active there as well.

    Lets not let the evil politicians take the joy out of life from us. Specially now that it’s the holiday season. Time to remember those loved ones who left us and to appreciate the ones we have around us. Although that time is actually throughout the year.

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.

      Thanks, Omar. I’ve been busy doing very little – playing with Lola and taking her for walks, gardening, going to the cinema and looking after the house, etc. As I said, I do keep thinking I should write something but I just haven’t been able to think of anything to write about. I hope you and your family are well and that you have a great holiday season and a Happy New Year!

  5. Hi Candy, It’s always lovely to read your blogs. Sometimes I find it hard to write about stuff too. The world needs a new generation of leaders and like you I’m fed up with the bunch we have right now. Christmas should be a happier affair this year and we plan on spending time at home with family. I’m sure we will all get together sometime in the New Year. Have a wonderful Chrismas. We too will be raising a glass.
    Hugs, D.
