............................... last week, while not writing daily blog posts?
I wrote and posted some thank you notes
Filled in my 2020 diary with birthdays etc.
Took down the Christmas tree and shoved it back in it's box and bags
Untangled the Christmas lights and got them back in boxes
Took down the Christmas cards, sorted the bits that make shopping lists and put the rest for re-cycling.
Chopped some kindling
Picked up twigs for kindling from the meadow
Did my seed order.
Went to Asda for a bit of shopping
Popped to Ipswich town centre
and visited two Suffolk churches
Shifted wood into the woodshed
I also read all the new posts from everyone's blogs and all the comments on my January 1st post and there was one that made me sad....
"Well hope this decade is better for you, growing old alone is shit for me, there seems little point in life but you seem to find your way through so hope it all goes well . Sarah in Dorset"
What would your reply be?
Thinking about growing old alone........... Maybe I'm lucky but on a normal day I don't feel alone or lonely now and I can't worry about growing old because it's going to happen anyway and I have no idea how I'll be affected but what to say to Sarah in Dorset?
I really hope that Sarah too can find a way through and get past the thoughts of there being little point in life............that just sounds so awfully sad.
