It’s the final Sunday Thoughts post of 2020 and you don’t need me to tell you that it was a rollercoaster of a year. I’m wondering what 2021 will bring but I’m not going to think about it too much, sometimes ignorance is bliss.
It was a lovely peaceful Christmas, although the lead up to it was a bit manic. Puggly ended up in the vets for two nights, he came home on Christmas Eve which was a wonderful Christmas present. Now though Rocket-dog is poorly so I’m keeping a close eye on him. He had surgery at the beginning of the month which he flew through but now he’s under the weather – probably too much to eat on Christmas Day.
2020 taught me a lot, mainly to stop doing so much. I realised I can’t do everything so I closed a lot of doors and am learning to focus on the things that are important to me. Mind you I still find there aren’t enough hours in the day for all I’d like to do (mainly painting). It also reinforced how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of the world and how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family. I’m also lucky to be part of an amazing work team and very grateful to have been given a chance.
There have been some highlights. Seeing the charity book come to life was one of them and I’m very proud of it. If you haven’t bought it you can do so here. The great news is that it was compiled completely by volunteers, including the editor and graphic designer, so all the money goes to the charity who support people in mental health services.
There have been other highlights mainly on behalf of the family but that is their story so I won’t write about it. I do have to mention how happy I am that we discovered a fantastic physical therapist, he’s really brilliant with Jono and he’s such a nice guy, so if you are in Sligo or can get to Sligo he’s here.
I’ll sign off for now but I want to thank all my readers for their lovely comments over the last year and I wish you every happiness for 2021.
