Someone once sent me this in an email but its lost now , but i looked on the web for it and id like to share it with you, as its very true, you only get one ride on the merry-go-round, dont waste it.

Dust if you must,
but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture,
or write a letter,
bake a cake,
or plant a seed.
Ponder the difference between want and need.

Dust if you must,
but there is not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
Music to hear,
and books to read,
friends to cherish
and life to lead.

Dust if you must,
but the world's out there
with the sun in your eyes,
the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow,
a shower of rain,
this day will not come round again.

Dust if you must,
but bear in mind,
old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go,
and go you must,
you, yourself, will make more dust!

Well, it's been a while since i posted. Things are finally getting a bit better computer wise, miss the fact that i dont have some pics, but there you go.
Have now booked our holiday. With Stewart being up and down to the hospital for a year now, our plans were kind of put on hold.However, the new ferry is coming into service so soon we'll be able to get to europe overnight again. We are going away in June, I emailed the hotel we like in De Haan and he has a room for us, which is good to hear as some hotels were full. We are going to be there the weekend they hold the "Beer Festival". it's in Middlekerk this year, same place we first found out about it. Belgian beers look, and can taste weird, some are a very odd colour, ive seen bright red beers, goodness knows what they taste like. Beer is a big thing in Belguim, they brew a lot of it there. There are lots of fields full of Hops in the summer time, just like in Kent on the south coast of England. So we will go up to Ghent for the day also and go to Brugge, i never tire of going there.
I have been in my job over 2mths now, in fact my probation period is up on the 16th Feb, that has come round fast. I really like my job, best move I made.
Finished a present for kate, have taken a pic but wont post till after her b/day. Havent done anything else, have yet to paint the saltbox house i got for xmas, just cant decide what colour to go or red?
The dogs are fine, they were alone a long time on Thurs when we went to the hospital but were good girls. Thay are booked ito the kennels for June, they love going there, they get all excited in the car and are dragging us ito the kennel door, its the only time Penny tries to get out of the car before i tell her she can. At least they like going, its awful if they dont and you have to drag them in. Stewart alway bemoans that they dont look back at him once they get inside, but im glad they go right in with out looking back, after all , it's their holiday too LOL
Anyone had probs with Glitter Graphics? That may have been where i got my virus and Im a bit wary of going back on, but i need graphics, so i may not have much choice, unless anyone knows of another site ?
Guess that all for now....later...Diane

Happy New Year !!! No quite so for me, our computer broke down and sadly the hard drive was wiped so I lost all my stuff, and yes it serves me right for not backing stuff up on a disc. Its not like discs cost a lot but you know how it is, you will do it later, well my later came and now im sorry, so you have stuff you dont want to lose, you know what you ought to be doing!!! That aside, we had a good xmas, lunch at my parents was lovely, great turkey and all the trimmings. New Year was quiet, didnt even stay up to see it in, this computer problem was getting to me by then as id not been able to use it since xmas eve. Had to use the library to send emails! So now I dont have any photos to post either, and thats annoyed me as i took some of the prim stuff i made for my friend. Hope everyone had a good xmas... later. Diane
