Goodbye to 2020

 This has been an unhappy year, one that I hope we shall never repeat. The day started crisp and clear with a clear blue sky and a light covering of frost.






















I had a walk around the garden









and then to the lake to see if the water had frozen over.





























Sun was already melting the frosted ground.









It was a quiet, reflective day, with no preparations for dancing and partying as on previous New Year's Eves. A full moon in the sky this evening seen through the window mixed in with our Christmas lights.





















Dear friends and fellow bloggers I wish you all good health and happier times ahead.

    1. Thank you, Pip, and the same to you. It is really quite grim here in Blighty at the moment, due, I'm afraid, to our incompetent government whose approach to everything seems to be that of shutting the stable door after the horse has fled.
      We are hunkering down.

    I can safely say that 2020 will not be repeated - no year has ever been around twice so far ;-)

    1. And to you, Jennyff. This sort of chilly with sunshine I like. Chilly with rain, mud, sleet etc I don't!

  12. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com website: Https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
