Goodbye 2008

I think this year has had more than its fair share of tragedy. Two of our fellow bloggers suffered the nightmare none of us could come out the other end unchanged forever.

On a lighter but still not wonderful note, 2008 has been a year of minor injuries for me which has been reflected in the amount of quilting achieved.

On the plus side I have lost a considerable amount of weight without trying, just by making the simple change of forcing myself to eat two slices of toast every morning. I do mean forcing, I find it very hard to swallow first thing. The miracle is it's working. I haven't cut down in any way I've noticed or even tried, so it's a winning formula. My clothes were falling off quite literally, so I bought a new pair of jeans two sizes down yesterday and they happily are falling down as well, yeah! Still some way to go but it's in the right direction.

I try not to write anything political but let just say world events over the last few days have had me yelling at the radio and television.

On the negative more couples amongst my friends have split up this year than I've even known before.

So 2008 goodbye, I won't be missing you very much.


  1. All my hopes for a better year..healthy, happy, and creative!

  2. Yes, I'm afraid I agree. Glad to hear there were many positives too. I hope 2009 will be a positive, happy, healthy and creative one for you!

  3. Yes..lets hope 2009 is a better year.

    Wishing you all the best for a happy and healthy 2009.

    BTW I'm just a little curious as to how eating toast in the morning is helping you lose weight...any tips?

  4. Sally, I'm wishing you lots of happy days in 2009, lots of new quilts and quilting, and loads of love in your home. Wish I could pop in one morning for that miracle weight losing toast and a cuppa.
