Lots of people need walkers for various reasons - from young to old. I actually find them really good. My Mum and S/Father have one each, - I often sit on S/Father's when we are out :-)

Hi Emily - My Xmas was very quiet. I went up to my Mum and Stepfather's (92yrs and 94, respectively), otherwise I would have been on my own. My son had just shifted over to Vancouver and my Daughter and her family had booked into a holiday unit, and altho' I could have gone, my dog couldn't have gone because they aren't welcome. (Rules of the Apartment Complex owners.)

Yes, I did read the Epic Biography of Emily, and you were quite right ..... it WAS epic - LOL! It took me a few days to go through i t:-)

I'm glad to hear that you have been having a wonderful healing time. It is amazing how sharing can lighten the load!

I hope that you do keep in touch.

Take care, and keep well :-)

Hi SLIMMERKIWI

I hope you had a great Christmas. It was really nice to speak with you again. Everything is going very well and I am just about to message you. I saw this post and wanted to get used to posting here again. I hope you recognize who this is emoticon

I have been having a wonderful healing time and I finally stopped being so daydreamy and got my new name put into SparkPeople. I will be asking a lot of questions how to get started. I once knew everything about computers now all the complexity just washes over me. I need to get focused again in life and everything. I am very much looking forward to touching base with all my friends here again.

Did you ever read the Epic Biography of Emily? It is ok if you didn't just wondered.

Hope everything is going very well with you and I hope to speak more with everyone very shortly as I get organized and focused.

Emily

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Yes, Thomas, plenty of meatloaf left over. You're all invited, but Mary can't sit next to Thomas.

Will you make a batch of eggnog for our dinner party? Quite the combination -- sturdy peasant food and a dreamy drink that goes down like lead.

Lesley, you made a good day for yourself by getting things done. Much better than moping and sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves.

Thank you, Kris. I am one of those folk who often ends up alone on family holidays, and not for lack of wanting to be with my family and friends. Some days, it takes a lot of work to remember that it's not because no one cares. Everyone cares. It's just some unavoidable life circumstances.

Thanks for the good wishes Kris. I hope you had
a nice Christmas. Was your grandson with you?
I spent it with my aunt, cousin and her DH as my
son is in the US/Canada.
Did not overeat, which proves I can be mindful.
Have a great New Year everyone.

My Xmas wasn't as bad emotionally as I thought it would be. I did two loads of laundry and vacuumed. I put a new filter together for my fish tank...by the time I was done I had black charcoal dust ALL over and white dust from other stuff in filter. It was a Xmas miracle that it started when I plugged it in. LOL. Oh yeah I also burned my finger on the heater but i did enjoy cursing. :-) the hardest day for me was Xmas eve...

Because I told you below that I'm a mediocre cook, I want to add now that the "traditional" Christmas meatloaf I whipped up was the best I've ever made. My meatloaf has always been good, but I made a couple of little changes today that amped it up. I can't tell you what I did, as it was improvised.

Lady Mary, here is a big kiss on your noggin.

I just got home from seeing an afternoon movie with a friend who was then going on to a dinner party at another friend's. I was on my own at home earlier and, now that I'm back, I'm about to pop the traditional Christmas meatloaf into the oven. Love that good, sturdy peasant food. I'd thought of something like brisket, but I'm a mediocre cook who is confident in her meatloaf. Brisket another time.

I am very lucky to have family around me this Christmas and I've just found out that I will be a grandma for the first time! Very lucky indeed! Merry Christmas to all.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I hope that every one of you has a very nice Xmas. I know that a lot will be (or are) on their own, but please, don't think that no-one cares about you. There are many people who you you have 'only' met on here, who think of you and are sending warming thoughts your way.

Take care, my friends, and be well!
