Never mind the bollocks

 

I was going to apologise the the (sort of) bad language, but then I thought 'nah'

I have been choosing a word instead of doing new year resolutions for years! Way before it became popular. Last year I chose fear-less, because I wanted to be strong and also to fear ... Less.

Did it work? I'm not sure? I had a dreadful end to the year and was feeling a bit bleak and thought goodness what was 2015 like??

Then I remembered what I had actually DONE, blimey, I only went to America!! To Paducah!! And had the best time ever!!

I went to Florence and Pisa with my amazing husband who I love more than anything. I ate great food with fabulous friends, drank fine wines with fabulous friends! I went on a quilt retreat to Cullen and made the Tula Pink butterfly quilt, did the stitch gathering, went to FOQ on my own which was fun but not as good as with my good chum Irene, but still an adventure.

So what did I learn? I learned by looking back that I had been fearless and had feared less too, but I had let the everyday *STUFF* cloud my vision of that.

So this is going to be the year of "Never mind the bollocks" if you are not sure what that means it can translate as 'don't sweat the small stuff' but I like this version better.

So I start 2016 working on the Bonnie Hunter 2015 mystery quilt, which is called Allietare, to gladden or rejoice.

So that is precisely what I am going to do, and never mind the bollocks.
