A Guid New Year Tae Ane An’ A’

Many thanks for all the pleasure your comments have given me over the year and my wish for you all is that the coming year will bring you what you yourself wish for and that your lives are untouched by grief or worry.

Who knows how the year will turn out….

‘For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.’

So carpe diem, gather your rosebuds while you may and lang may your lums reek!

  1. That man looks ready for a party. He also looks like someone I’ve seen before. If he’s single and not actually famous, give him my email. That would definitely get the new year off to a good start. Happy New Year Helen, to you and Leo.

  2. Thank you Helen for your kind and wise words. I look forward to reading more of them in 2023. In the meantime, all the best to you and Leo for a Happy & Healthy New Year. Sue

  3. A rain squall woke me about thirty seconds before midnight here, just in time to watch some neighbouring town’s fireworks through the porthole before going back to my bunk… gone, long gone, are my days of waking up on the pavement with a monumental case of alcohoolic pisoning.

    Very best wishes to you one and all for the coming year. What (else) it will bring may only be guessed, since even those supposed to be “in the know” have neither clue nor influence.

    Brace yourself, Doris, here we go again… 😉

    1. I do tend to indulge myself on December 31st in a dream that all politicians and their owners will vanish in a puff of smoke at the stroke of twelve, leaving us free to get on with our lives…..but by one o’clock on January 1st I return to the realisation that they won’t unless I light the fire myself.

    1. And Happy New Year to you and yours….
      I do wish a new cycle would really begun, where our masters just let us get on with our lives without wanting to control us from A to Z.

  4. Sadly I took the man in the picture to be Richard Branson coming to privatise Hogmanay. It kind of put me off.
    My greetings to you, him and the farm are always for the good.
    Life goes on, following its own path, but I hope some good things come your way this year.
    As for politicians I say it will only get worse in the UK. There is a hard time ahead for us all. I can see a flood of asylum seekers heading across the Atlantic in small boats heading for Costa! Make sure you have the dogs on guard at all times.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,
    May he make his face to shine upon you,
    And give yous his peace.

  5. Richard Branson?Get out the garlic and crucifixes! Not forgeting the stakes!

    I cannot tell you how relieved we are that we left Europe when we did….we thought it bad enough then, but now beats the band for disorganisation, chaos and mendacity.

    His peace is what keeps me going.

  6. A very Happy New Year to you both. I hope health improves, but I so understand the problems. Cheers, take care, Diane

  7. Ah, here we are! Happy New Year! Yes, could be Richard Branson but fewer teeth visible. And as far as I am aware Branson doesn’t wear a kilt, although one can never be sure about anything I suppose….
