Ready, Steady, Go!
Day one of a new year (1.1.11.). No saint attributed. Perhaps no-one offered their services as the Saint of Hangovers. Aspirations? Not really. Hopes maybe, but no resolutions; nowadays I need to make those on a daily basis.
Desires? Yes; some. Wishes? Too many; too diverse.
Physically. Well I suppose the old machine needs more care and attention.... but what the hell. I'm not the do yoga/eat lettuce/my body is a temple, type. My current fuel of alcohol and protein seems to keep me going OK. Maybe I need more of both.
So, whatever your bag, may it be filled with all that you need, and may we all reach Dec 31st 2011 in at least as good a condition as when the year began.
STORIES NOW SILENCED ..........
*Little did I know that the GIF of a sparkler that I put in my last post
to wish everyone a Happy New Year would have caused so much pain and be so

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
