Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Looking forward to 2012 with the conviction that anything is possible, even while I reprimand myself for achieving so little in 2011. Maybe I am an optimist after all.

One thing I did finish this year was my Writing for the Web course, which I am very happy about. I learned a lot and even got a certificate to put up on my wall.

In October-November there were no entries for the short story competition, to my great disappointment. Maybe next year I will enter some competitions instead of trying to run one. It seemed like a great idea at the time.

Christmas Day was turkey with “all the trimmings” on a hot Australian summer’s day, and a Magic Book (aka Sony ebook reader) for me. Have been listening to audio books on it while out walking, obtained from Librivox. Long time favourites which are out of copyright are free to download. For print versions I have been using Project Gutenberg. Both are volunteer organisations.

Looking forward to New Year’s Eve and a 9pm fireworks display at Coogee Beach with a picnic. Then Sydney Harbour fireworks at midnight — on television — without the long walk home afterwards.

Have fun and see you next year.
Love from Jude

  1. Wishing you a FAB 2012 I tell you that my four kids came home for Christmas! Cristobal & Joanne from Dublin, Ireland; Rodolfo, from Queenstown,NZ; Christian & Nanae & Tai from Canberra. Some arrived early December & left just yesterday…
    Carolina, Michael & Antonia came & left …. Now they are in the Gold Coast celebrating New Year with friends. And tonight I will be at the airport to pick my eldest son, Christian & his lovely Japanese girlfriend, Nanae, and my dear grandson, Tai. As you see I’ve been overwhelmed by joy & laughter.
    Best wishes for you, always.
