As 2016 draws to a close, I have decided to stop posting on Facebook, other than in any groups I belong to. The time has come to seek new friends, friends i can touch and actually talk to, have a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or go for a walk with.
I find it hard to be myself on Facebook. To me, it feels false, offering comfort to people I have never met or oohing and aaahing over babies and pets I will never actually see. I would rather meet up with people, or tlak on the phone. Make a real connection rather than a virtual one. From now on, I would like to try to be honest in the way I live my life as I can possibly be.
I am not working today. Instead, I am clearing the decks, tidying up and making my first ever lemon posset. Tonight, I will dine on my favourite roast lamb with roast potatoes and parsnips, continue fighting off this annoying winter cold, watch Going Postal, a brilliant adaptation of the Terry Pratchett novel, then see the New Year in with Robbie Williams. With any luck, I can sing along with him, providing he chooses the right songs.
I hope we all have a happy New Year and that our wishes and dreams all start to come true. May you find love and happiness and above all, peace. HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone.
