Finally, i can say “never mind the bollocks” and mean it.
Blogger have solved their itinerant problems with commenting. I can comment! You can see my gloriously sexy, ArtfulDodger-designed icon again, displayed o’er there on the right. Joy!
And they have a new tag label box. Stylish! No more fumbling around with the HTML required for technorati tags. Happy, happy, joy, joy.
So today, i am home, working (paid work), and working (housework) on preparing dinner for a whole bunch of people for tomorrow night. Yes, once again, Jewish New Year has rolled around and it’s chopped liver time! I make a wicked chopped liver — so yummy it borders on the foie gras, in my not-so-humble opinion. (Pursuit, get your shiny heinie over here and give it the seal of epicurean excellence. I trust no other as i trust you, in these matters.)
But for now, I’m writing you all… because I’m all about the procrastination. And it makes you think, a landmark of this nature. If i had known now what i didn’t know a year ago… blah, blah, blah.
I didn’t know last year how many friends i had. It adds up, you know. I am a very fortunate Minx.
I didn’t know last year that i could feel what i felt during this year.
I wasn’t cognisant of how mistaken i had been, and what a narrow and lucky escape I’d had.
I wasn’t aware how treacherous some people can be, nor how evil.
I wasn’t aware of how strong the ties that bind a true friendship really are. Nor that i was blessed enough to have such good friends in my life. You know who you are — all of you.
I learned how to enjoy my children in the last year, more than ever. I would post a picture, so you can see how adorably cute they are (cough cough when they’re asleep cough cough), but you know, I respect their privacy and everything…. so it aint gonna happen.
I predict that, for me at least, the coming year will be full of challenges and changes, rocky roads, bends in the road, and with any luck, light at the end of the tunnel. Check back this time next year, let’s see where we are.
But i must reassure you of one thing: I am going nowhere. I’m still here. I’m not scared. I am ready to face whatever life throws at me, and smack it the hell back.
