Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 30/12/2018 – new

img_1345-3

Each week Helen gives us a new theme and asks us to choose music with lyrics to suit.

Sometimes it is difficult, sometimes a song comes immediately to mind. Always, it is enjoyable.

By listening to everyone’s chosen song, which you can do here, we get to hear old favourites, and music that is completely new to some of us.

This week the theme is “new“, and I’m offering two seasonal songs for your enjoyment. The first is by ABBA, and I am using them to help me wish every one of you A Happy New Year.

“Happy New Year”

No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say…Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Next Year and Forever

Sending this seasonal, succinct, second hand sentiment because it is far better than I could have put into words. Happy New Year!

The happy Quitter!

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

Sunday sayings #16 and a bit more

images-6

Particularly at this time of year!

However, there is always lots to be thankful for. Family, friends, a warm home, good food, and YOU.

I’m really grateful for all of my followers, and for those that I follow, on WordPress.

I love the humour, the candour, the help, the advice, the comments, the really serious posts, the absolutely zany posts, the travel, the food, the photos, the recommendations. Some blogs I read every single word, some blogs I dip in and out of, some I visit infrequently. I consider you all as friends.

Thank you one and all, and may I wish you (an early) Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 brings good health, peace, contentment and as much success in your writing/blogging as you would wish.

AND THANK YOU

Pure wisdom once more from Colleen. 

I do wish that I had written this!

I don’t want to place an entire year’s worth of burden on a one second time change tonight. So instead of wishing for a full happy new year, I’ll start a little smaller. I hope tomorrow that all of my friends, family, loved ones, or just kind of liked ones wake up safe and sound. […]

Week 12 Limerick challenge – Prompt “Free flowing”

sore thumb

It’s time for the last Limerick challenge of the year and this week I have free rein.  As there are so many sales on at the moment I thought it only right to offer BOGOF, in fact you are getting 2 free! Here they are.

 

Free flowing #1

 

The limerick challenge’s a great thing to do

We love it dear Rashmi, it’s all thanks to you

It’s perfectly clear

that during the year

the entries got better and just grew and grew

 

Free flowing #2

 

As 2015 comes to end

the New Year is just round the bend

Please all join with me

in thanking Rashmi

for all limericks that were penned

 

…..and for a bonus here’s one based on a true story of lunch making today! Mum, in this case will have to be my good lady wife!

 

Free flowing #3

 

It’s really a bit of a bum

I sliced off the top of my thumb

Many oaths did I mutter

whilst spreading the butter

I now need a cuddle from Mum
