Where did 2017 go?

As I sit here vegetating on the settee I am thinking about Burns Night - January 20th in our case. We haven't even had our Christmas dinner and January is on my mind. I guess this is part of being an organised type of person - or a mad woman? We have had another successful year here in the village with the various activities, workshops, walks, fund-raisers and festivals. I have been involved with. We have made a healthy profit, secured a couple of grants and give-aways which mean the hall is being re-decorated as we speak and new carpets on order.
We will be planning 2018 in the New Year, developing what has worked and trying out new ideas we are toying with. As always, all we do is a team effort, each of us bringing some different aspect to the grand plan. I always say treat people as you would like to be treated - it's all down to how we are with others - and other people have helped us take our efforts to a level where we have received recognition.

As ever I have plans for the new year - will they work? will they happen? I'll know this time next year!

Watch this space.

Happy Christmas and best wishes for a healthy, happy 2018.


  1. I must say Denise you do sound to live in a really thriving community.

  2. I will look forward to reading along and hearing about your new plans. I must definitely come to one of your village events next year - keep me posted when they are taking place as we are often up your way visiting mum and daughter and looking for places to go.
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. So late, it sounds like a wonderful year for you and your community.
    Please keep up telling us about your plans.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Happy New Year. Congratulations on such a stellar 2017. I am amazed by all you did and the plans you have for the future. Keep it up and keep blogging too.
