It is only 358 days to christmas and we can do it all again, exciting ain't it.
As you regular readers of my daily journal will have noticed is that there is different picture at the top of the blog, this is a view of one of the 3 main roads onto Portsea Island from the mainland. this is entrance off of the M27 Motorway. A new start to a new year.
Well I managed to stay up until midnight to see in the new year, I was watching the live coverage of the firework,s in London. I went out into the street to exchange greetings with some of the Neighbours.

Once I was back indoors, Pauline Phoned to wish me happy new year and then it was off to bed, had a good nights sleep and slept through until about 8.45 waking once about 6.30 for the bathroom so had a nice lie in again, but must remember the carer is back tomorrow so no more lie in,s for me.
So Today is January the first 2013 and it is my brother pat,s 66th birthday today, He is a avid golfer hence the cartoon greeting for him, I did send him a Birthday card by Snail Mail as well

There is one major event to remember for our family in 2013. On the 2nd of May 1913 in the city of Portsmouth, Edith Annie Hubbard was born, Our Mother. So Mum would have been 100 years of age this year. The earliest Photograph I have of her is at 16 months old sat on a table with her mother Annie Maria Hubbard and he baby sister Lucy Maud Hubbard at 7 weeks old. here is that Photograph.
Sadly Mum passed away at the age of 92 on the 16th May 2005, she was interned at Fareham cemetery in a Double Grave with Dad who passed away in 1953 so they are both together.
