A silent prayer....

Not an animal shed...

This six degrees of seperation thing.....

I was thinking about it and wondered if I could in fact 'link' myself to any of you...........
maybe it is a small world and all things are possible.

Blessed beyond measure......

The Christmas and New Year festivities chez Libby.........



as I said....I've been blessed beyond measure.........

I truly hope that 2015 is a healthy and happy year for each and every one of you...may we all travel the path of this coming year in safety, health and love 
 and be able to look back at a year that was peaceful, pleasing and full of 
whatever made our lives blessed...x
ps ...as for myself.... then with love, laughter,  travel, family and friends, freedom from fear and a content heart along the way......x

Giving it a go.......

As you may know ('cos I post about it every year) New Years Eve is not my favourite time of the year. 'Tis a bit scary in my mind. You reluctantly say goodbye to a year that you have managed to get through and so it is a year that counts as safe.......it is gone and what is done is done, good and bad  - so draw a line under it and move on.........but.......a new year? a whole 365 days of who knows what? whoa nelly that is scary.

So just to mix it up a little and act like a grown up I am going to try to redirect my thinking. 
Consider that optimism and looking forward may be the way to go....with shoulders back and a smile on my face.

2014 was fabulous and 2015 will be ....................??

Happy New Year everybody.....health and happiness in 2015....xxx

What have I forgotten?

So..... the shopping is done, the turkey is bought, the tree is up, the presents are wrapped, the beds are changed, the fridge is full, laundry done.
Why do I feel like there is a great big 'BUT WHAT ABOUT!!!!' hovering in the ether?
Yes I know that any old psychologist could perhaps think my anxiety relates to the family situation, and no doubt there is a nugget of truth in that, but I also feel that I have FORGOTTEN something...but what?

I haven't forgotten to send my 'blog' Christmas Card.......here it is....again...my usual Ivy Heart.
Happy Christmas, a healthy and content 2015, and all manner of loveliness to all of you...xx

To the brink.........

The good.....

cried while watching It's a Wonderful Life  (yes those are happy tears)
drank Prosecco with a friend
decided that next year we will have a kitchen extension
got some reduced Waitrose goodies that can be frozen
ate chocolate
managed to put my tights on while standing up!

The bad.....

wrestled with the sellotape again
caught sight of my naked belly in the mirror while I was putting my tights on
Lost my temper while at Ma and Pa's

The ugly.......

Had very end-of-my-tether shouty argument with my mother - swore never to set foot in her house again...ooops there goes Christmas
(although even in my anger I managed to avoid saying 'go fuck yourself').

Merry Christmas everyone x

'Y'know I didn't think I'd like it...but I loved it...'........

Those were the Misters words last night.
We tried something new, something that was unknown to us, something
that at this time of year, when the nights are cold and dark seemed to fit the bill.
I had a glass of red wine and then we gave it a go.
A Christmas Wassail.
Talented people, singing like angels.
It was a really lovely evening.
Just goes to show really.....there must be lots of things in Life worth trying eh?
