New Year's Eve.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
 The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.

New Years Eve - for some reason, tradition I would suspect I have been looking back on 2010. There have been sad times, like saying goodbye to a dear close friend who died as a result of a road accident, and there have been good times too. For me, I am proud to say that my very best friend who I talk about often, is no longer single in this life and she has found a new soulmate to share life's big adventure! Guess who introduced her? Yes - moi! This has to be the highlight of my year - and I suspect hers! lol!
The weather has not allowed us to have a get together over the Christmas period but there will be lots of good times in the year to come!
We are out at a family bash tonight, an indian meal and then life should get be getting back to normal. I will be glad to return to my diet as I seem to have eaten for Britain over the past few days!
Here is hoping for a good 2011 for all of us!

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit, which begins on February 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012. The Rabbit is the fourth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animals signs. The Rabbit is a lucky sign. Rabbits are private individuals and a bit introverted. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are reasonably friendly individuals who enjoy the company of a group of good friends. They are good teachers, counselors and communicators, but also need their own space.

According to Chinese tradition, the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves. It is a time for negotiation. Don't try to force issues, because if you do you will ultimately fail. To gain the greatest benefits from this time, focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children. Make it a goal to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.


  1. Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2011 Denise. Here's to another year. :)

  2. Peace love and happiness to you and those you love.
    God Bless.

  4. Maybe I ought to turn into a Chinese - this sounds like good old common sense.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year, Denise. May 2011 bring health, peace and happiness to you and your's.

  6. Ah yes, the turn of the year is always a time for reflection, isn't it? So sad about the loss of your friend. Perhaps this year will have the sound of wedding bells to it, for your other friend? I hope they make you Maid of Honour, if it does!

  7. I think my rabbits are very pleased to be living at the time of the Year Of The Rabbit! They like the publicity!
    The Japanese go straight into the Year of the Rabbit now!
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
