Goodbye 2018!

I have never written a review of my blogging year, and after flitting back to January 2018 I can see why…..

January started in grumpy mode – off to a flying start then – and I was hoping to complete a new, riveting, interactive project called Loopy Letters. That all went tits up.
I also fell off a tree and hurt my knee – IT STILL HURTS!!!!

February – Still grumpy.

March – Mr Devine had a birthday!!! There was snow in the form of The Beast from the East!!! I also had a birthday.

April – A little less grumpy. Charmaine popped in for some gruel, and I regaled my readers with tales about exotic train travel.

May – In a better frame of mind, some would say almost hysterical, as I went into a giggle meltdown due to Mr Devine’s sidebar being sabotaged by Dinah’s extra-large photographs. You had to be there to understand my mirth.
In May I also accepted that I’m a flakey ne’er do well, and the Loopy Letters project was quietly shelved. It will probably fall off the shelf in 2021 and make a loud thud.

June – I made curtains, and walked a lot.

July – It was hot.

August – My eyebrows fell out.

September – Waffled on about calligraphy.

October – Good grief. What was I thinking? On the plus side, there was a nice picture of a big blue sky.

November – Onset of Tinnitus, and Yodel van incident. BUT, I also won the FGES competition!!!!

December – Christmas!

And, after almost nothing happening for a whole year, my blogging chums still turn up to say hello!!!! Remarkable. They all deserve medals. Should I make medals in 2019??? Gilded medals… I could send them out to people???? NO, NO, stop this madness!!!

I have no plans for 2019 other than I resolve to conduct myself in a more orderly fashion. Whatever that means.

Anyhow, best wishes for a HAPPY NEW YEAR to all who wander through my blog posts!!! Even the spam bots.

        Don’t be silly, Dinah. I would like them in an appropriate place, i.e. above my eyes, so that I can raise at least one elegant brow to signify my disapproval.

    Oh yes, the falling off a tree episode. What with all the subsequent excitement of 2018 I’d rather forgotten about that – and it still hurts? Perhaps you should go and have a moan to a doctor. Anyway, good riddance to this year and let’s hope the new one works out better.

    Happy New Year, Scarlet! We all seem to be falling to pieces as time goes by. I hope you have far fewer aches and pains, accidents and follicular fallings out in 2019 (and ever onwards). xoxoxo

    Huff! Your blogging review is far more succinct, funny and readable than the one I’ve just spent ALL DAY on. HUFF!
    But, still, Happy New Year! I hope 2019 brings more mirth and merriment (even if gargantuan sideboard photos are the cause), and less physical fuss & nonsense.

    Oh, and Hapy New Year to Sid, Charmaine and that ruffle-shirt wearing plumber who thinks he’s a Spaniard (I can’t remember his name. Oops).

      Happy New Year, Mr Devine!!
      Yep, this sloppy post was brought to you in ten minutes flat. Appalling.
      I’m looking forward to more massive sideboard pictures in 2019!!
      ….oh…you mean Harold…. blimey…. where did I put him? I haven’t seen him since 2016?!

        You know what a slopster I am, Mr Devine! I will try harder next year, and perhaps write a few posts that could feature in my review.

    You and our mutual friend in Norfolk have both reminded me of the time I re-blogged someone’s post, not realising that writer’s images had not been re-sized. It was rather funny, wasn’t it.
    So…other than being told by a GP that “the bunny test confirms you ARE pregnant, Mrs MGillicuddy ”
    we never really not what might be in store for us, do we? So it follows that we should hope for the good things, like blog stalwarts, someone to have fun with. (Muriel! Go back to your own room.Now!), a powerful god or a magician to sort out Brexit, Ferrero Rocher on special…
    Yes, hope. Here’s to the old cow getting into gear this year! Oh—MURIEL!

    I do apologise for her, Scarlet. She means well, but the meds…

      Happy New Year, Kylie!!! I know…. BUT… I think I need perhaps a smidge of discipline in my life, and not just with blogging…. don’t fret though, I don’t have the capacity for serious discipline!

    Out of curiosity I consulted Blog Advisor, which gave Wonky Words three stars and had some rather abusive reviews of your distinguished blog. They totally fail to appreciate the ground-breaking, trend-setting, opinion-forming nature of your unique enterprise. They even criticised your constant grumpiness. Don’t they realise grumpiness is now the number one emotion in fashionable circles? Onwards and upwards!

      Happy New Year, Nick!!
      Oh, you’re referring to Bog Advisor. Yes, they have had it in for me since the days of The Friday Flush and my tour of UK public toilets. I stole their thunder…and the last roll of loo paper from the Whiddon Down service station on the A30, leaving the staff at Bog Advisor up a paddle without a creek.

    2018. Feh. Who needs it? Your eyebrows fell out. I wound up in the hospital for a back procedure. Trump is still President. The coming year has *got* to be better, right? In any event, hope you’re well and that you don’t overextend yourself. Keep an even keel.

      I have just read that you are coming to London this year!!! Are you going to pop over to Devon…. I have an attic with a camp bed. There would be fish finger sandwiches. I know – a tempting offer that must be very hard to refuse!

        I don’t imagine I’ll have any time to myself. Going with my family, my sister-in-law and her family, my MIL and FIL. 10 of us. I’m hoping I can dump them to go to the Tate modern.I don’t know what a fish finger sandwiches. Will Google it.

    I remember those curtains are they still hanging on? Just don’t close the curtains on your blog.
    I often refer to an old post but I don’t do annual reviews. I noticed your avatar has a fresh face and a smile.
