No SuRprise Here (December ReflectIons 31)

The final prompt for the 2019 December Reflections is perhaps the toughest for me to tackle: My Word for 2020

This is so not me!

No, really. I am not the kind of person to set a narrow focus. I don’t even do New Year’s Resolutions as I find them to be foolish.

I am however playing this game and must show willing. I do not intend to blob out on the final prompt.

Here is my word then: SURPRISE

I intend to spend my year in continuing to surprise myself by the things that I achieve, the places that I visit, the new things that I learn and the skills that I develop. In my life there is always something unexpected around the next corner. Surprise is something that I can actually count upon.

Perhaps I shall revisit this post with the 2020 December Reflections and Surprise myself by discovering my 2020 theme/Word in retrospect.

We arrived home from a month-long trip just after lunchtime yesterday, squeaking in under the wire rather better than we did in March, when we were an hour or two late and had to come home, attestation in hand. Lockdown v1 did not gain as much of my attention here as it should have done. It has been pointed out to me how important itContinue readingDéja Vu

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
