So, I like getting letters. But I LOVE writing them. And it's something I've not done much of over the last few months. This has got to be remedied.

Comment with your address (even if I've written to you recently ish - I'm a sod for loosing them / not writing down) and next time in the mood to put pen to paper, you might just get one from me.

Open to everyone on my friends list, though of course, some of you might be more difficult to write to than others but that's half the fun!

NB - Comments are ALWAYS automatically screened on my journal, so don't worry about commenting. Or you could link me to your lj posts which hold such info if you'd prefer.

*kisses*

[Edit] - my address is here (locked post), but if of course I write to you, I'll include it anyway! (Well observed the penguiny one x)
Your Children / On Children
Extract
Kahlil Gibran


Your children are not your children, they are the sons and daughters of lifes longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts for they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward, nor taries with yesterday.


Just found this poem and thought it was gorgeous. Definately not advice my mother needs but something she always holds dear and follows, though I don't know if she has ever seen this. It's here to remind me that as and when and if, this is something I too ought to be mindful of!

A rather belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you firstly.
Secondly, resolutions are something I never keep so I won't be making any.
Thirdly, I have now returned from my countrywide zip about (though I'm sorry for missing pubbage tonight, but [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and I really needed some together time).

This means a further two things; [livejournal.com profile] deborah_c, I am at your disposal this week. Let me know when is good (if you haven't already, which I'm about to check). [livejournal.com profile] gandalf_t_black - tomorrow evening would be favourable. Also, I could really do with catching up with the rest of you too which I'm hoping will happen soon.

In brief, I had two lovely family Christmases and a great catch-up with friends in my home town (some of whom I hadn't seen for literally years) at New Years. I'll try to do a proper write-up soon but I'm off now to return to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont - foodage then dvdness I think.

Oh! And [livejournal.com profile] min_ki - when you read this, if you're in North Carolina make sure you post? I'd love to know how you're getting on (and thanks for talking with me earlier, it really helped).

Sat here feeling crap. Need to have a boost. [livejournal.com profile] devalmont has supplied me with drugs and vitamin C because he's 'very worried' about me and says 'this will help get rid of any nasty bugs and help your immune system because we want you to get better by tonight so you can have a nice weekend... ' and other such sweet and boyfriendly things. I have mushroom soup, the thought of which doesn't make me heave and pain killers are slowly begining to have a vague effect.

I'm having a general purge and am about to go and have a very long soak in the bath (having not seen a deodorant or clean water since Wednesday morning), the sheets are going in the wash and admist all this cleansing goodness, I intend to dust my room in more way than one. I also intend to have a bit of an lj clear-out (inspired by the monkeys of late on [livejournal.com profile] rainbowskye's lj).

If I get rid of you and you want to be kept, just let me know. It's mainly communities I don't look at or people who have deleted journals, or those who I have little or nothing to do with either irl or online. I doubt you'll miss my inane drivel but if I'm wrong, you're welcome to stay.

First and foremost,

Happy New Year

Here is to a good, peaceful one.

There have been quite a number of changes for me and my loved ones to deal with during 2005. I feel that it was often a bit of an uphill struggle but last night, it felt that we'd reached the sumit all as one and I'm convinced that whilst lots more changes are in store, they're going to be good ones (or at least, affirming ones which help you move on) rather than the chaos and confusion so many of you have known.

It was very difficult being away from [livejournal.com profile] devalmont who I missed terribly at midnight but I think this was the place for me to be. Next time round, wherever he is, I'm by his side as I doubt I could manage again. NYE is traditionally a couples night whereas Christmas is traditionally family. He is both and we didn't manage to be together either time.

Spending Christmas with my parents was very important to me this year and I'm really pleased I did. [livejournal.com profile] min_ki graduates this year and is unlikely to be able to get Christmas off. I've already decided that this year will be spent with [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and basically I think it will be some years before we're all able to be there at the same time again.

I spent my New Years surrounded by some of the most wonderful and amazing people I know and it was great to be together for what I think might be the last such comprehensive gathering. Lots of effort was generally made by people with costumes, the most impressive being [livejournal.com profile] reverend2001 with is Jareth impression. LOVED the wig!

These last 3 years in Brum have been fantastic due to a very special group of people who I miss dearly. It feels as if everyone is at a crossroads and different directions are on the cards for them all. So to everyone who came to HoG for the New Years party, thank you for making it a special last one for me. Next year, wherever [livejournal.com profile] devalmont is, I will be.

All the best for 2006.

i'm so lucky to have such a supportive family. i've just talked a few things through with them and they've chilled me out no end. most people would go to their friends first and build up an external network. i'm privledged enough not to HAVE to do that, i've a wonderful support network at home which i sometimes forget about, and sometimes take for granted.

On an unrelated note: i'm sick of allowing myself to wallow needlessly and pointlessly rather than facing the world )

it's stupid - and i'm not. i need to give it up, let go and move on. i'm a big girl and there is NO way anything that's happened before is going to dictate my future and how i deal with problems for a second more.
