I’ve had a mental block regarding blogging just lately. It’s nothing unusual, it happens lots of times to lots of bloggers. So, I’ve had a look around at the usual what to do when you can’t think what to do websites, looking for motivation. In the end, I’ve sat down and decided to write. What about, I haven’t a clue, but we’ll see what happens.
What On Earth Can I Say?
So… I have nothing to say, but here I am saying something. Sounds a little like some politicians I could name, come to think of it, it sounds like all politicians. Anyway, that’s enough about them on here, I’ve had a bellyful of them this past couple of years. Life’s good at the moment for me as I hope it is with yourselves. This time of year, I’m talking weather-wise, is not my favourite. Darkness seems to descend too early and leaves far too late. Give me the warm summer sunshine any day.
We went to our local pub the other night. It was one of those rare occasions for me, but they had a quiz and I do enjoy a quiz. We teamed up with a couple of guys and had a go. We came third out of four teams, but there was a second quiz about music and we won!! Our prize was a bar of chocolate and a big bag of crisps. Great fun and I was pleased to have come up with the correct answer of Johnny Ray, ‘Just Walking In The Rain’ in 1956.
A Great Community
There’s a great community spirit where we’re living now. It’s taken some getting used to after living in the concrete jungle for so long. You could barely look at anyone without them shouting back, ‘What ya lookin’ at?’ at the old place. There was a Christmas lunch last week in the community hall, it really is nice to see everyone coming together and enjoying each others company and of course, the meal was delicious. This coming weekend it’s Carol singing around the Christmas tree in the village square. Everyone joins in and there’s usually someone playing the trumpet or trombone all washed down with mulled wine and a mince pie.
There you have it. I had nothing to say and most of what I said amounted to nothing really. I’ll leave it at that. I just want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and may 2019 be healthy and wealthy for you all. Thank you to everyone for your continued support during this year.
