That it is folks.. Time for the last minute scrub of the house, clearing it all away and putting everything in it's place before we bring in the New Year.
Old traditions die hard.. A clean house for a good year ahead.. A dirty house leads to a bad year ahead.. Opening doors to let out the old and welcome in the new... Not quite so much first footing with a lump of coal these days right enough.. Lol.
When I was young, I remember that every year my mum used to be like a mad woman doing all her decorating between christmas and new year.. Ceilings, skirting boards, walls.. They all got done and by the time Hogmanay came around she was trying to get the white spots of paint off the front piece of hair that her scarf didn't cover.. She looked like a right wee Mrs Mop so she did.. Lol.
Well.. Here's hoping it's a better year ahead for all.. Remember those we have loved and lost and look forward to the new who will enter our lives over the coming year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL.
Love 'n' hugs
