2014 The first flower ‘soreal not plastic’

New year resolutions I must keep:Image

Chuck out all the stuff in my  cosmetic bag and buy a whole lot of new colours .

Not to worry too much about anything. Things usually work out well enough if you hang on long enough, so I will remember to hang on.

Keep  writing the diary every day in longhand. Never edit, or look at it again once the page is turned.

I promise to watch family antics with humour and love, only butting in  if needed or asked ( but let me know in good time please)

Glad you sound Ok


Dear Emma,

Thank you for your letter.  Just received it. Glad you sound OK. Isn’t it just the way?  I had just posted a reply to your last miserable  letter ( I went on a bit) and wish now I hadn’t ! Too late now. Glad you’ve come down to earth. Keep it up!! Anyway, just a quick note to say we are ok  but amazed how much colder it is getting.  Fireworks sounding off  most nights and its not even Halloween  yet, let alone Guy Fawks! There is likely to be a harsh cold spell in November, apparently. I don’t know if that means snow again and getting cut off like last year!  At the moment everything in the garden is turning into bright autumn colours. Mostly red and yellow. A sight for sore eyes.  A memory to hold, if the snow really does come when they say it will….or worse, if it doesn’t. I don’t mind a bit of white to even things.   The kids are all settled in their new schools. Happy too!!

I may ring,  Love Rosie xxx
