New New Year.

I am trying something new today. I found a blog called Sunday Scribblings. They give a weekly prompt with a subject to write about. The latest one is new year.
Well!!! This year I have made a resolution to make no new year resolutions. Each year I think of things to resolve for the new year like lose weight, be more caring and patient or whatever and when a situation arises they all go out the window. I eat that nice biscuit of have an big serve of meat or get annoyed at Mrs K (a patient at work) who I know has lost the plot big time and will neither understand me or be reasoned with and is exceptionally obnoxious. So this year, no resolutions to make. Instead I will just be me and try to be the best person I can be.
My hopes for the new year? I hope we get the move to Canberra. I know it won't be easy, especially setting up a social network of new people, as that is not easy for people like me. I hope that all the stuff we see as an advantage of moving to a bigger place turns out to be what we expect it will. I hope to learn lots of new things and move forward in my pottery, finances and health, for myself and the family. Gee this is harder than I thought it would be, trying to stay on a subject instead of my usual ramblings.
O.K. enough of that! My front tooth has lost a filling and I have been waiting to hear if the dentist has had a cancellation so I can get it seen to. Meanwhile I have been popping it back into place for cosmetic reasons and trying to chew on my back teeth so as not to dislodge it again. The trouble is we have a dinner date tonight with a workmate of Pete's who is leaving. Could be interesting... or embarrassing! Lol.
I went down to the local Museum today. Brian rang early this morning and invited me to their monthly music and sing along day. He invites me most times but I don't always get to go, I have only been twice before. I took Mum and we enjoyed it. They had quite a good roll up while we were there. We stayed about 1 1/2 hrs. There was the lady with the violin whose name I can never remember but whom I have met lots of times, Brian who plays ukulele, squeeze box, harmonica and drums on the back of his ukulele to keep time. Another local man Rus, on the banjo and a lady on the organ. Good fun. In between there were also tourist type people coming and going who stopped for a while to join in and have a cuppa. The museum is in an old fashioned pub that closed down quite a few years ago. It still has the big coach entrance (arched doorway) at the front of the building and is 2 stories with the original iron work decorations along an open verandah, on the second floor, a lovely old building. It was still open as a pub (the Broadway Hotel) when we first came to town but it became dilapidated from being closed down and empty, until the museum people were able to take it over.
My darlin' braticus daughter wants to get the puter back off me, so I better hand it over,,,, to be fair.
Bye Love Linda.

G'day Linda ~~ I agree, making resolutions is a waste of time, far better to try to be the best we can all the time. I hope you enjoy Canberra, if you get the move there.
Thank you for your comments and Season's Greetings. I hope that 2008 will be a wonderful year for you and your family. Take care, Love, Merle.
