My wish for 2022 is return to something like normal.Just when we thought that was happening along comes Omicron.Things we had planned for January have already been cancelled.Let’s not dwell on that.
Looking back the biggest thing we did was move house,even move country.Would we have done that if it wasn’t for COVID.I think we were scared and wanted to be nearer family.So in April we moved from Wales into England to live very close to our daughter and family.That has been brilliant.We see our daughter and granddaughters on a regular basis.But we miss friends .What a strange two years.
Highlights of this year have been three of our grandchildren getting good results.Emily got 10 A* (but is struggling with being an enormous,very competitive 6th form college).Finlay got BBC and has secured a place at Nottingham Uni for September 2022 to do Psychology.Ella got a First from Manchester University in American Studies and was best in year.
My OH celebrated his 80th birthday earlier this month and we had a brilliant family weekend celebrating.All eleven of us.We have not done that for two years.
Xmas was spent here with Sarah and family.So much fun and laughter.Truly great memories created.
We have had our jabs(but unfortunately we are ten weeks past the booster and protection starts to fall).
We are just thankful we have remained healthy apart from COVID worries.
Two days ago we celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary.
Our son in law (had a brain tumour removed February 2020) latest scan showed the bit they couldn’t get at hasn’t grown and the benign tumour they cannot get at has shrunk.
So, Happy New Year and fingers crossed it is a better one for everyone.
No celebrations here tonight.We were invited to Sarah’s but have declined.They are coming here tomorrow for Grandpa’s roast dinner.He has a reputation of doing the best roast potatoes and Yorkshire Puddings.
