The New Year came with all the festivities and thoughts of the future
Oh, let us enjoy this season we said, the year will begin all in good time!
Then all of a sudden
it seemed like we’d been lined up at the starters gate for quite a while
Australia Day came and went – As did the start of the New School Year
And that’s when the starter’s gun went off – loud and clear
Since then it’s been go go go 😊😎
Last week the oldies in the Nursing Home who had missed the fun and games of their Musical Memories activity gave it their all (well all that they could remember), my choir had its first weekly rehearsal of the year, and talk at the first monthly book club get together for the year was about the oodles of books everybody read because it had been too hot to do anything else. A busy day today began at the nursing home encouraging the residents who take part to exercise their brains by identifying the MM songs, then after picking up some books at the library designated for a February reading challenge I stopped talking about it and popped into the Leisure Centre to renew my gym membership.
It’s back to the pool tomorrow morning with the first meeting for 2018 of my local CWA Branch in the evening. A Ladies Probus meeting on Wednesday morning followed by an assessment for a new exercise programme. Thursday the new (to me) charity knitting group I mentioned a while back has their first gathering of the year so I’ll drop in to say Hello.
We have a new boundary fence going in some time this month so I’ve got some time earmarked to be spent clearing more of the fenceline on Friday. My ‘tricky back’ means it can only be done in drips and drabs as I don’t want to be pencilling in visits to my lovely chiropractor on the calendar 😊
Yes it sounds to me as if the Year Proper has finally begun.
Some people warned me I’d be bored stiff when I retired. I’d miss the contact I’d had with the public all my working life. Ha Ha don’t think there’s any chance of that happening. Yet I’m very careful to make sure that tucked in amongst all these ‘voluntary commitments’ there is oodles of quiet time set aside for me to enjoy life.
By myself or with The Golfer.
When he’s not on the golf course that is 😊
