New Year's Eve?

Hello and welcome to Inso's World on New Year's Eve.

Seeing as it has been Christmas week, I can safely say that I have done very little, other than to make merry and enjoy the festive period with family and friends.

I have shared a wonderful year with so many people and have made a host of new friends in our new home, in Cornwall.

Yes, there have been sad times and times where a challenge has been placed before me... and before my family as well but I would like to think that we have treated those challenges with the contempt and respect that they deserved and have powered through.

I am looking forward to spending New Year's Eve in the company of friends and family and will greet midnight with a mix of happiness and reflection but after a year of such massive upheaval and change, I know that I can face 2018 with a positive attitude and a will to make a difference.

I don't make resolutions so that isn't what these are... but...

In January, I am joining my son in going dry for a charitable cause. He has a friend who is hoping to collect enough money to take his daughter to America for life changing treatment so any money we raise, will be going to them.

I will be tying up the loose ends of Dad's inheritance as soon as I can.

By Summer, I hope to have the windows in the house replaced and be planning (at the very least) to have a new kitchen.

I am hoping to get a job... maybe just a supermarket job or possibly, a job in elderly care... I guess we'll wait and see... especially with the limitations my shoulder places on me. Hopefully, I can charm my way past my physical limitations when it comes to the interviews...

Once I have a job, I can plan my charitable activities but this year will definitely see me running to Land's End for Marie Curie (even if my shoulder is still misbehaving).

Then, of course, I have all my hobby activities to be getting on with and also my bike to be riding... so even without too much planning, I can see 2018 being the next step on the ladder to getting more routine into my life and properly settling here with a little more security than I have had this year.

With the new year in mind, I would like to extend my best wishes and greatest hopes to you all, for a healthy and prosperous 2018.

See you from the chair next to the sofa!
