I don't make resolutions really, but see the start of a new year as a time to look back on the successes of the past and to look forward to what the future brings. Learn from the past, enjoy the present and look to the future is how I try to see things.
This week the prompt from Julia is a bit different; no surprises there. You can read her fab blog at http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/100-word-challenge-for-grown-ups-week25/
This week we have been given a picture and asked to write in the first person from the perspective of one of the people in the picture. Here goes
A very happy new year to all, full of health, hope and happiness.
I’m here; not that anyone was expecting me-no one thought I’d put myself through it again , not after last year.
This time I'm wearing the same as the others.
Oh yes, how I laughed after turning up as an elf last year when everyone else was a reindeer. And how they all laughed as I struggled.
Can’t look me in the eye now though, none of them, not even Kim.
I’ve been training, haven’t told a soul. They’ll all be expecting me to trundle along as usual...not this time.
The year of the dragon.
(note- I noted that this year is the year of the dragon so I put the arrowed girl to have been born in 1988 whic was also a year of the dragon- hence the reference)
