Happy Christmas and here's hoping for an even better NEW YEAR!
It seemed to me that I need to break the back of this year, so I'm starting my New Year right now today! So may I wish you all a Happy Christmas and an even better New Year!!!
Which means that my last new year also started today, which I think is going to work.
So this is what has happened to me since then.....
Kit left home properly to live in London
My car was engraved with the words sex and cunt and cost £1000 to repair, of which I had to personally pay £500
Devon for a weekend.
Went to New York and stayed with David in his sister in law's apartment for a week.
Christmas, which of course is a mixture of happiness and stress, particularly as I cooked lunch single handedly for 7 people.
Went to Philly for the New Year.
On return from Philly found toilet leaking in upstairs bathroom, water had leaked through to ceiling below
Got Trix....... Wanted to send her back it was sooo stressful
Washing machine bust mid cycle, had to buy new one, insurance wouldn't pay out.
Snowed in..... no work no pay.
Alex got ill for the first time, he was ill for 12 days including a day in hospital, another work day.... no work no pay.
My Auntie died, so horrid funeral to attend.
Went to Devon for a weekend
Alex's 18th birthday night spent in a police cell for fighting
My birthday... yah! lovely week long celebrations!
Devon and Cornwall for a week staying with three lots of friends
Kit came home for Easter.
Alex admitted to hospital for second time, this time ill for a week..... No work no pay.
Thankfully Alex well enough for me and Jenny to go to Amsterdam for a weekend, battle is still ongoing with travel company at the state of the hotel.
Alex admitted to hospital again, ill for 4 days.... and guess what, yep, no work no pay!! But I finally worked out what was wrong with him.
Met up with David for lunch, first time we'd managed to get together since America, and what proved to be our last meeting.
Went to London, stayed for three nights each with different people, met bloggers, cousins and Kit's girlfriend for the first time.
Breast cancer check up.
Went back to Philly for 10 days. Phone call from Alex in big trouble for fighting had to get legal advice.
Had to have new glasses
Lost an emerald out of a little Victorian ring, followed by another emerald out of the ring I wear all the time in memory of my mum, Followed by the complete loss of all stones out of a Victorian diamond and sapphire ring. Got my mum's ring fixed.
Back to Devon for a long weekend.
August 09,so far!!!!
London for three nights, one with Kit, and two in swish hotel with friend from Philly. No wonder I told Kit I didn't want to go home.
And the next day..... Alex arrested for causing criminal damage, makes front page news in local paper following Wednesday
House goes on the market
Alex goes away to Spain with 8 lads ( please, please let that go well!!!)
So now can see why I want to change the date of the New Year. What is to come, will be Alex's court case. I just hope that when that happens there is a bigger story going on to put on the front page of the local paper. Hopefully me selling my house and moving. And going to Germany to meet Geli, and then coming back for David's funeral, and the rest of my life........
I think I've had my share of tough this year. But maybe it's cause I live large that this happens, who knows.
But what I do know is, that I couldn't have coped without the support and love of my friends. And the love and devotion of my wonderful dog Trix, who just is the world's best dog. I think I can only be grateful I don't have a partner, as with what's been going on this year we'd probably be in the middle of a divorce anyway!!!!
