Here we are then, first post of 2010. I’d like to say I’m greeting the arrival of the new year with great jubilation, marking as it does the finale of the slow and laborious demise of 2009. The crappiest year that I can recollect having had for a long time. Along with quite a few other folk I do believe.
That’s what I’d like to say.
But alas I don’t feel I can. For I have a real nasty sneaky feeling in me bones that 2010 is likely to be as bad, if not worse!
Now there are some who may not have thought that possible. But, in unusually pessimistic mode (for me at least), I suspect they’re in for a rather unpleasant surprise.
Oh well. This is one occasion when I really do earnestly hope I’m wrong.
In the meantime, while I’m waiting to be proved right, I’ll just have to try to drown my sorrows.
Oops! Looks as if I already have…
