Busy busy bee

Whoah - did I say Happy New year? Crikey.

It's been a hectic first week of the year, with work surprisingly busy (January is normally deathly quiet) plus several pieces of bad news - a sudden death (not in my family, God be thanked, but the sister of someone I'm very fond of); another friend v upset and stressed with a pile of cr*ppy things landing on her all at once; another friend has been assaulted and has gone to ground completely like a bear denning, so I am worried about both of them and am telling myself they are both intelligent, sensible adults who will make wise choices and take care of themselves; and then someone I got on well with at work has left very suddenly and no-one knows why, so there is an uncomfortable mixture of worry and speculation in her wake - though pleasingly as yet no nasty gossip... And on the good side, at least my cousin's folks in Queensland are not in that bit of Queensland...

Well, it's Friday night now and despite the rain I am off home. Hurrah for weekends! - & may no more disasters happen during the next two days, please...

you know.. there is a difference in worrying and being concerned. just do what you can for those people but leave it at that.. don't fret or worry... remember: all will be well & all will be well and all manner of things will be well.

thanks for the email re the flood.. I am no where near it at all.. but it is devestating for those who are.

enjoy your weekend xo

Happy New Year and best wishes for a year of, well, contentment at least. Despite that run of recent bad news do I detect a lifting of your spirit which seemed to be sagging a wee bit there? Given we rarely know our own best interests, I know I for one look for all the right things in all the wrong places, or is it the other way 'round.
