And the good news is............

.... a letter arrived a few days ago..... "I had the opportunity to review your recent CT scan......I am pleased to say that everything remains stable, and I have requested a further scan in one year's time. " It was sent from the surgeon who had operated on my heart in April.  It was a very 'good news' day, and contributed to a good end to 2021, after what has been a year full of life lessons needing to be learnt. I have had a urge to buy a SmartPanda diary, though. It is a working diary. Methinks that 2022 will hold another set of  'things to do', but that is my life and it is as it is, and since I asked to come into this life to learn a certain set of life lessons, then I shall carry on living, and enjoying, each day.

Gracechurch, the group who I mentioned in the last blog ( which was at least six weeks ago, and I am sorry for that, but writing had evaded me for a while ), has proved a success, with friends being gathered and providing a good end to the year by giving a performance at Ellesmere Market Hall. 

And me..... not in costume, although I had been given a round hat to wear so my head would look authentic but my hair and the rest of me would not. 

But it was fearsomely cold in the hall, so I was glad not to be wearing a silk dress, and instead was clad in sensible thermals, and a woollen jumper and shawl. It was a fun morning, and the new keyboard played well on its harpsichord setting. When next we are out in public I shall be in a silk dress, and the keyboard is going to be dressed  up as well to represent a clavichord. 
It was such a treat not to be doing something sensible.......

Meanwhile, we have joined 'A Stand in the Park', which meets every Sunday morning. 
( ) It is not a protest as such, just a coming together of like minded people who are concerned about the future....lockdowns, harmful new laws, the ‘pandemic’ the people behind ‘The Great Reset’, etc. etc
 There are over one thousand parks in twenty countries.
 We meet in the bandstand of the park in Oswestry, 10-12 am. 
We chat, share news, share friendships, and groups in other areas of the world will be doing the same. 
No need to join or have a membership, just turn up. 

So....... hoping that 2022 is a good year for you, and that you will keep sailing along no matter where the winds of change take you,
In love and light

Happy New Year Vera and may 2022 be a prosperous year for you both.

Oh, such wonderful news Vera! I am sure that this was a great relief to you.

The singing group look fun! Third daughter, Nighean Dhonn, is in a choir group that for Christmas dresses as circa 1850's English Carolers and performs a cappella carolers. I think she rather enjoyed both the dressing up and the carols themselves.

The park meeting sound wonderful as well (can you meet in the park in Britain in Winter? I have these visions of it being really cold and unpleasant.).

Here is to a wonderful (and hopefully much less eventful) 2022.

Great to see a post from you! You look very happy and healthy (and warm!) in your photo. Slow and steady wins the race is my motto for getting where we want to be in life. And keeping an optimistic outlook as you do, Vera.

NORTHSIDER: Hoping that 2022 is a good one for you and your family. Vx

TOIRDHEALBHEACH BEUCAIL: I am sure that your daughter would have loved being in period costume whilst singing carols would have been a splendid experience. I would most certainly have joined in with them if I were not in the loads of miles away in the UK!

You are right...... standing in a park in winter weather can be a cold experience, but we meet on a concrete based bandstand in the middle of the park, and after a while evacuate to the nearest pub or coffee shop to warm up. But we British are stoical about our weather!

Wishing you and your family a good and productive 2022.

LOCAL ALIEN: Thank you, and hoping that 2022 is a good year for you.

MAMA PEA: I totally agree with you about that moto .....slow and steady wins the race in life, and also.... being able to pick yourself up with you have run out of batteries!
Best wishes to you and your family for the New Year.Vx

DUTA: Thank you, and hope all goes well for you in 2020.

WALKING IN BEAUTY: Thank you, Kathy, and I will pay close attention to the small print should I ever have to come back to Earth after this life is done with!
Hope all is well and that 2020 is kind to you and your family.

RHODESIA: Thank you, Diane, and hope that 2022 will see you out and about again!
