So now we have a new year – the year that I will become 65 and officially a Swedish pensioner. Not anything I really looking forward too, even if it won’t make any difference to my life, more than I will have a lot less money to spread.
Hopefully I will be able to celebrate my birthday in NYC as planned, won 2 first class tickets with British Airway – but so far I haven’t heard anything back from them about my required dates.
11th of September – and for years I have wanted to be in NYC for the remembrance, so hopefully they will give me my first choice of date, 7th – 12th.
Of course I want there to be peace on earth … but I have given up on that – because it will never happen, the war industry is far too big and we need it rolling. If it doesn’t roll on the world economics’ with collapse, more unemployment – so even if I want there to be peace, it will not happen.
So what do I wish for 2013, I want us to be healthy – I want people to have equal right to health care, every child should have the opportunity to go to school, that here should be fresh water for everybody – and food … plus that we all should have a proper roof over our heads. And that is something our world’s rulers can achieve.
But still I doubt that will happen.
I wish that we should respect each other a lot more and be friendly to the ones we meet, give a smile and offer our help – make a little difference for somebody when we are given a chance. This is something we can all do.
My first day of 2013 – I started off with a brunch, didn’t wake up until 11am – too much movie watching last night. And I started my new year with champagne and Egg Benedictine – something I do every first day of my new year, if I’m at home.
This morning I also open the parcel from Noeleen@world falls from my eyes in Australia, that have been a part of my world here for quite a few months now. A woman that I admire so much – because she are working so hard to get out her alcohol addiction and doing a very good process, even if she are not there yet. We can only take one step at the time. Her son is now a handsome teenager – she has really had a rough and tough path to walk along and I’m so proud over her. Collected the parcel on New Year’s Eve
Noeleen, thank you so much and I haven’t had Australian Cadbury’s Favorites before – had the UK version a couple of time, but they are totally different.
Noeleen, you really made my New Year’s Day special and you made a difference to it. A wonderful and sweet gesture.
Cheers to you world and to your rulers. And to All of us – let us all make a difference when we are given the chance.
“Many people look forward to the New Year
for a new start on old habits.”
