Syne about forgetting ‘times gone by’ (whatever that’s about).
So, here comes 2014! What will the year hold? One thing I know for certain is that it will be about mid May before I adjust to writing 2014 on any document, all the time muttering about ‘where did 2013 go?’ And, ‘how can it be 2014?’ Another certainty is that politicians will remain
gormless and in the thrall of the money makers; there will be no ‘heart’ in any political decision that eventuates. Political promises will be made and broken - good ones abolished, nasty ones kept.
However, life is still beautiful and we must be thankful for being alive and having family and friends to love – and to love us, despite our failings.
So, forget all the cynicism for a day or two and (as I now do) wish all people a Happy New Year!
May it be filled with good health and happiness - and may every politician be suddenly
blessed with a conscience and a will to help those most in need. (Ha!)
Roll on 2014, we're ready!.
