Happy New Year

Welcome to my blog, something I’ve decided to resurrect after 18months of not bothering. I’m not sure why I gave up with it but recently I’d been thinking I should start again and the first day of a New Year and a new decade seemed an appropriate time to do it.

I don’t imagine for one moment that I shall write deep and meaningful blog posts but I hope perhaps a record of my travels, adventures (if I have any) and life experiences in general. I’m generally a light hearted person so that will hopefully be what comes across to you dear reader(s). I expect there will be the odd rant and complaint but that’s life isn’t it? It’s not perfect and I think it would be pretty dull if we all got what we wanted without having to worry about certain things from time to time.

So, what do I hope to achieve in 2010?

I hope to meet some of my friends from the John Howe forum in USA and Canada.

I hope to meet some of my European JH forum friends again and some that I didn’t meet in 2007.

I hope to meet some more Twittermates who all seem to be a lovely bunch so far.

I hope my broken elbow gets sorted out soon (3 weeks today since the accident) and I can carry on enjoying life unhindered by having an unusable right arm.

I hope to be a good friend and to be able to help those who need me.

I hope to learn how to cope with all this technology we have in the house without getting G to explain over and over again what I’m supposed to be doing.

I hope that at some point I can show Graeme how grateful I am to have him in my life. These last 3 weeks would have been unbearable without him.

I hope to get up on a couple of  the high mountains in Cumbria this year, something I have neglected for way too long.

I hope to get back running as soon as possible and manage longer distances without too much trouble.

Well I guess that’s enough for now. Of course I’d like to see the world without wars, famine and injustice and so on but even I know that’ll never happen but I’d love it if I were wrong ;-)

All the best to you and yours for 2010!

    “I hope that at some point I can show Graeme how grateful I am to have him in my life.”

    You show me every day ;-)

    I am looking forward to reading about your travels and adventures Julie!
