If you take two steps forward and one step back, you’re still getting someplace.
Don't give up the moment you slip up. Press on!
Friends and family:- Write nine letters and post before the end of February
One is to my cousin who hasn’t spoken to me for about eight years, but she is related to me on my mother’s side .and as my mother died when I was two it is suddenly very important to me to be in contact with her, we are both getting older and time slips by without you noticing.
My Australian second cousin’s wife writes to me at Christmas time as I do to her and when we met last year in Australia, we said we would write more often, so that’s important to me too!
A cousin from Wales who became a Grand Mother again last Nov. A note in my christmas card told me, so I must answer her and say congrats.
My old school friend whose son age 39 died eighteen months ago and is still grieving, a note cheers her up and I try to write each month but have missed because of Christmas.
Then I have 5 friends from Billericay who all wrote to me at Christmas time and as I am moving back there I want to keep in good contact with them as they all have been very faithful to me these last three and a half years while I have lived here.
Social daily life:-I must sort out my membership of the U3A and attend the meetings near to where I live here in Coventry instead of paying and not going to the main body of the society because it is the other side of the city!
Give up the writing group as I no longer enjoy it.
Cross stitch:- These were quite hard to decide:-
I am not going to stitch the Grand Marquoir design not because I don’t like it, because I love it but what would I do with another big completed design , there isn’t enough wall space in my house in Billericay and I have loads of other completed designs to put up.
(I think this may apply for just now and later this year I may decided to stitch it!)
I have seen Rose Swalwel’s Seasons and love them so I am going to stitch those , as four little 6x6 designs framed nicely would look very nice in my hall. This is Spring
