January 2013 a New Year

My desk is fairly tidy and I am to resume work again tomorrow after too short a holiday, so an entry about the new year seemed like something to do.

This afternoon has been spent lusting over laptops in the vain hope that I will actually manage to buy one this year. The buying of a computer for myself is an ongoing fancy that arises every few months. You would think that I would actually make it happen as I am “in IT”.

I have also passed some of my time today filling in blanks in the family tree. My husband speculated last night that at the rate I am going I will soon have listed everyone that was alive on the planet in my family tree. If I do manage this achievement it will be worthy of a post on this website.

Talking of this website I do know that it is a much neglected site but I look upon it sometimes a bit too much like work and a bit of a drama to access. Yes that is a poor excuse but maybe I will improve during the year.

This year like all years is going to be a big year and one that should not be neglected. I am going to try and attempt to make the most of the year, the months and the days. All years should be treated a big years, this is very important advice I am imparting and something I have tended to ignore in the past.

Something a bit less deep but just as important was purchasing a book during my holiday break.  I found a second hand copy of  The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden when visiting a book shop with my Dad.  I have in the past enjoyed doing a few cross-stitch patterns based of the lovely drawings from this book and it was something I thought I would never find to purchase.

I found the January 5th entry from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady to be very similar to the weather conditions we have been experiencing since returning from out holiday.

She was surely writing about here and not England.
