I'll also be doing my diary for the second time, it happens to be on a family birthday this year.  ;D

Hi Bearnan,

It is good to hear you will be joining in again too this year.

Since this will be falling on a family birthday of yours I expect yours will likely be a bit less hum drum than many others sent. ;D

However, I think that even hum drum ones in years to come will appear fascinating to future descendants.   :)

Wasn't it on May 12th last year?? (So it would have been that person's birthday then too?) :-\
But as it falls on a Saturday this year, I'm guessing most people will be doing weekend things rather than working week things perhaps.

RTL, mass observation day 2017 came at a very sad time for me because I had not long lost my husband, I can't remember what I wrote but it was helpful to me. So while I think we'll all treat our diary as a bit of fun it can also help to write things down anonymously.

A year on the the world's still spinning and the sun shines - sometimes  :) and mass observation day looms on a family birthday........ thank goodness for family and cake  ;D

Bearnan, as you say, the world keeps on spinning, no matter how tough we may find each day. 
I do hope you are feeling stronger when you write your MO diary for 2018, and that it is good therapy for you.  :-*

Already feeling stronger Mowsehowse   :) Family History is a great diversion especially when a brick wall starts to crumble thanks to dna results.

Glad you are gathering strength already Bearnan.
As you say, family history is a marvellous diversion, for just about everything!  :D

Bearnan, I am sorry to read that you lost your husband last year.  I am glad to hear that writing your diary entry was helpful during such a sad time.  It is hard to believe life can go on spinning when bereavement happens .. but somehow the river of life just seems to carry on ..

This is one great thing about family history - this interest can be a great distraction from stress in life.

I wish you well and I hope you enjoy the day with your family and having some nice birthday cake.  :)
