New Year - New Dawn

By MrsS    
Hi All and a very Happy, prosperous and peaceful New Year to you all.

I know I haven't posted for a while - was a strange end to 2010 - a bit like the waves out to sea - turbulent and uncomfortable. But here we are now in 2011 and I hope there's calmer water to come - like the waves lapping the shore gently.

The house is strangely quiet without Cleo, and I still find myself wondering if I need to buy dog-food and we have to keep an ear open for the door now that our early-warning system has gone. Coupled with the fact that Sukie isn't well, and needed a trip to the vets, I'm hoping that 2011 may offer us a little less stress than the last days of 2010.

As always, can I thank you for not only taking the time to stop by, but for your support, help and advice throughout last year, and indeed all my time here on EPZ, may this year be good to you.

Sounds from your narrative that you have lost one of your best friends, Fran, so sorry to hear that. A horrible time for you all, I know it only too well.
A beautiful image, with a well deserved GEA, have a peaceful New Year.

A Happy New Year to you Fran, I hope the pain of losing an old friend dulls a little as the year moves on for both of you. You'll do the automatic things for a long time to come but then they bring a smile when you remember the good times associated with them.

All the very best
