This Year’s…

December 28, 2008




This year dawned in ‘style’…both of us in costume…er, the only ones in costume….at the pub, where I was fed trifle by Kev using his toy excavator!  What fun!


In January, Ange and I joined a Middle-Eastern dance class that was being held down the High Street…ideal for the buses home, as it was close to a bus stop!  This soon became a bit boring, as we did the same choreographed dance every time…yawn!!  I gave it up because of health issues…and Ange did because she got bored with it.


February was when we had the earthquake that measured 5.3 on the Richter scale, in the early hours of the morning.  We were woken up by the whole building shaking, and it scared the heck out of me, resulting in a very sleepless night listening for any creaks and groans…yes, I had visions of the building collapsing!!!


In March, I was off work for two and a half weeks when my foot swelled up painfully, and I couldn’t walk…I was going stir-crazy before the week was out!!


What happened in April?  Um…my weight was really becoming a problem, as it was solid weight, and I felt really ill.  Oh, and it was my birthday!


In May, the Vulcan made a welcome return to the county, flying over Lincoln and Waddington.  Also, I got a comment on one of my blog entries…from someone called Tigrx, who turned out to be a very special friend.  And his friendship led to others, who are also very special to me…love you guys!!   


June saw a flypast, over Lincoln, of many aircraft that left me wondering what was going on…what was it all for?  I soon found out…the Queen’s Official Birthday, and Trooping the Colour on Saturday.


July…my first mammogram…OWOWOW!!!!  I had bruised boobies for days!!!  We had a young mother and her fella move in downstairs, who caused so much trouble and noise nuisance that the council and police were contacted…thank heaven she wasn’t there long!!!


August…barbeque at the Wagon….and the bitch downstairs moved out!!


September…nothing of interest…!!


October…We went to Trowbridge for Karen’s fiftieth birthday bash, and also to meet up with Lucy and her husband in Lacock.


We also watched The Crow, again…I love that film, and I made my costume for the pub’s Hallowe’en do.  There were more costumes than I expected, but they were all shop-bought!


November saw me start on the chemise, from the patterns that Rachel has lent me, and really got my sewing head on again!  I found my camera during a big clear-out.  I walked to work for the first time in a few years…and I felt great!  Have lost a fair bit of the weight, and all of the solidity…feel flexible again!!


This month…?  Well, Windows Live have changed Spaces and Hotmail, etc., and a lot of people are still pissed off by the changes!!!  This Christmas has been a bit of a shitty one…I’ve not seen any of my family, and no-one has been near or by!


So, this year has been a terrible one, financially, as we only just avoided losing the flat, and are on a knife-edge with that re-possession order hanging over us…but it has been a fabulous one for all the good friends I have made on here!


Here’s hoping that 2009 brings better things, and that we all have a brilliant, prosperous, and

    To the woman who says she waffles, rants etc, Don\’t ever change! However, I really do hope circumstances change for you and soon. It Hardly seems fair that you and Robert both work and find yourself in such a worrying predicament, whilst others living on benefits get everything paid for them. xxx
