Blunders and Absurdities

 


It's not always that easy is it? 

 But I guess we should do the best we can.

It's that time of year when loose ends are being gathered in ... or chopped off, when you look back on the last eleven months and ponder over what might have beens and start thinking about them and the possible alternatives.  

Well I do anyway!!

But then there's the beauty of looking forward to a brand new year and the possibilities it holds, and the best bit ... starting to make plans.

I looked back over my Challenge blog earlier today and did the final update of the year long One Hundred Books Challenge, the year long Challenge that carried through all the other ones.  I didn't make my target of reading 100 books by a long shot but it was nice to tie up loose ends and add the link to my new blog at the end of it, and of course the book I'm currently reading ties in neatly with the new Challenge for 2021.

A Year of Modern Rationing

No doubt some 'blunders and absurdities' will creep into my new Challenge over the course of next year, but I really am going to give it my best shot.  Me and the girls are working out the final plans at the moment.

  1. I blunder on a daily basis, it is the norm for me. I often set myself daily challenges that I fail to achieve so my New Years resolution will be not to make one and to stop setting myself goals that I cannot achieve, simple achievements like remembering to put on knickers, wash and clean teeth, cook and clean for the men in the house and to get through the day with as little swearing as possible ( none would be impossible ),will be enough for a while.I strive to make my life as simple and rewarding as possible, I don't need the latest fashions or painted nails, nor do I need posh food or alcohol, I just want to be able to say at the end of the day -" that was a good day " and I wish that for you and your lovely readers too , Merry Christmas , Chrissie x

    1. Yep, I blunder through life on a daily basis, getting annoyed with myself and fellow blunderers as I go, but it's all part of life's rich tapestry 😀

      Merry Christmas 💖🎄 xx

    1. Thanks for the reminder of that Sue - saw the trailer and did a mental heads up - then in all the madness of the last two days, it had gone from my head!

    2. Yes I set the Freesat box ready to record it last week when I read through the Radio Times. I knew I'd forget if I left it until the last minute 😃

  4. We will start the New Year in a new home, with lots of Lockdown Walks to explore our new locale. We know Builth a bit from going there to Antiques Fairs on the showground, the Royal Welsh, the Smallholders Fair etc, and we know the main routes in each direction.

    I try and achieve something positive in each day and learn from my blunders! That's what life is about.

    1. It seems a lifetime ago since I was last in Builth for the Royal Welsh. I hope you have lots of fun in the New Year exploring your new locale 😀

  7. Happy Christmas to you Sue. Of course there will be blips, and blunders, but that's part of the 'rich fabric of life' isn't it! I will follow your year with great interest.

  8. Yet again, your blogging resonates with my own ruminations etc. In the last week a massive reality check in the form of a car accident, has rather put things into perspective.
    Your challenge next year looks exciting. We are embarking on a similar one, inspired by but not prescriptive the WWII ration diet. I will continue to eagerly follow your writing- it's a reassuring, honest constant.
    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Sue, regardless of the state of things local and global.

    1. Mine has quite a slant in it too, you could possibly say I'm sticking to the letter but not the law 😄

      Happy Christmas 🎄💖 xx

  11. This may be my first comment Sue. I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading both of your blogs this year. I live in the U.S. but I'm originally from Manchester so I love to read U.K. blogs.
    I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy healthy new year. Jo.
