Jaye’s Journal ~ Week 51


Jaye's Journal x12


How has 2019 been for you?


I have been doing more thinking than doing this week, about how long I have been on this planet.

I have seen the end of 74 years and looked forward to 75 New Years in my time. I think this means that I have lived through 7 centuries!

Bloody hell, no wonder I feel so old!


I love the thought of starting a brand-new century but can’t help feeling it will feel very odd at first. I always have trouble getting the date right, so not expecting any change there.

I normally give a lot of thought to all those New Year plans and promises but for some reason, I have been dragging my heels. I have spoken on here about some of the things I want to do but my heart hasn’t really been in it.


I have been feeling far more tired than usual, so yesterday, when my batteries failed quite dramatically, and I literally had to sit down step down. I am back on my feet today but think I need some of those strong batteries. You know the ones I mean, with that crazy bunny dashing around, like an idiot!


All joking aside, I don’t like feeling I’m too old to keep up and the thing is, I can’t tell if things are getting harder, or if I am becoming less able to cope.

Some serious thinking will need to be done eventually to figure out if there is a way forward, maybe in some lesser degree.

Everything seems to be getting more complicated and there’s not much I can do about that, and this is where being stubborn really pays dividends…


Are you looking forward to the new century, or do you have misgivings too?

  1. It seems we just turned from 1999 to 2000! It was so exciting to enter a new century. Now we are entering another decade of this century. Where did those 20 years go?? I don´t think we will be around for the next century but hopefully, the earth will still be here in 80 years for our descendants. Happy Christmas and all the best for 2020!

  2. I remember my mother saying that life got harder around the age of 75, so it may be that’s how it is for everybody. I’m 12 years behind you, but starting to get aches and pains. However, I try to keep as active as possible, and look on each day as a bonus (if I hadn’t had all the treatment I’ve had I’d be dead by now!).

  3. I read recently that when 2020 arrives, that means 1970 was fifty years ago. What!? I can’t get my head wrapped around that. The years fly by and the body can’t keep up. I enjoy the moment, especially all the little things- which are really the big and most important things. Merry Christmas and best to you, Jaye.
