New Year Greetings Everyone….

Slangevar

Goodbye 2021 ……. AND WELCOME TO 2022

At Midnight tonight the 31st December I will lift a glass and toast all friends far and wide….. friends that are local and friends known only over the ether.  All are valuable and add to our daily life.

So if you should sing “Auld Lang Syne”….  listen carefully as you may well hear a not so melodious voice here in Derby. singing along with you.

Good wishes to all and with hope for 2022.

SLANGEVAR

and as always….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

It seemed along way off….. then in a Flash its here

Disc One

Scourie Bay, North West Coast of Scotland.

It doesn’t really matter where it is……. just another memory of places we have loved over the past few year.  Far too many to mention.   It is also another year where restrictions have curtailed our travel… even places closer to our home have seemed, at times,  as if they were at the ends of the earth.

Here we are again at the end of another year, a year that does seem despite all the issues, to have raced past in a flash.

But being positive, despite yet more Covid concerns, we must have hope for a better year ahead, with maybe some fun adventures along the way.

Whatever your plans…….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Thoughtful Thursday……. A Winters Day

9.11

Early morning sunshine, a little mist…. and a cold winters day becomes magical.

Not every morning is so wonderful, but if you can, when the situation arises I hope you can take advantage of natures offerings.

At home, in your garden or out in the countryside…as always….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
