The Back of 2016
just a quick ramble as we have now entered the New Year, wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017, I think when those two things are in order everything else seems pretty irrelevant.
I hope your Christmas was amazing and you are not now suffering too much food and drink guilt lol, it was one of those where I said sod it, I am going to just enjoy myself, and yes indeed I did, and yes indeed I now feel guilty ( kind of ) not so much so I am rushing to the gym at this very moment in time, but I am trying to get back to normal whatever that is :) 2016 seemed such an awful year in a lot of respects, the grim reaper seemed to be on a mission, and we lost a lot of much loved people, I think for those of us of a certain generation it seemed to hit particularly hard as it was much loved figures from our youth, and a reminder that we are not as invincible as we would like to imagine, which really goes to prove that we have to tell our loved ones we love them more often, laugh until you need to pee and just generally try and make the best of everything regardless of how shitty it feels at the time, I know it's an old cliche but life REALLY is short, and how we deal with the ups and downs really is in our hands.
I don't know about you ? but I don't do the whole New Year Resolution thing, gawd If I gave up much more, there would be no vices left and how much fun would that be ? All I can do on a daily basis is remind myself that I am luckier than some, not as lucky as others and at the end of the day most things are just bull**** and of no real importance. I think it's one of the joys of getting older is realising that nothing really matters except for love and health, both of those are priceless and you won't see them being unboxed on a YouTube Video.
Enough of my rambling, once again I wish you all you wish for yourself in 2017 and thank you as always for taking the time to read my little space on the interwebby :)
Love as always
