Happy New Year!
Janice
Wow, what a busy time of year it has been! I have not visited GoodiesRule much lately...and now find I'm well over my six hundredth viewer! But they didn't make their presence known, so I guess I'll never know who number six hundred was now!

My dear boyfriend took me to see the Narnia movie last night and I loved it. It is so true to the book. I know there were the odd little differences, but the images were so much like the little line drawings in the novel itself! How wonderful. All the parallels with the Christian Gospel are evident, too. The movie doesn't seem religious, but the essence of Christianity is there. Such a clever story by C.S.Lewis.

I'm one step closer to doing the nose art on the Spitfire today, after visiting it again and having a look at a copy of an old photograph. It won't be long and the old aeroplane will be sporting a new "babe" on her nose!

I came home to receive sad news in the post: My former high school teacher, whom I've been in touch with for all these years, passed away in September. His sister wrote to me, after having received my Christmas post to him. I felt I knew what it was going to be about, when I saw the letter was from her, but when I actually read the words, I burst into tears and cried my heart out. Funny, isn't it, how we don't really know much we care about someone, until they are gone? I didn't have much contact with him, but I knew he was there. His sister said he had kept a lot of correspondence from me. She seemed to think I was a significant friend. That is touching. Goodbye, Maggo...

Hey Janice. I saw that Narnia movie the other day too. I thought it was excellent. I've only ever read the picture book though, ;p (I was about 7 when I got it, which is probably about 6-7 years ago now..) I was kinda sad in one of the bits too, which I will not say just in case people who haven't seen the movie yet are reading this.. By the way, I am very sorry that your old teacher passed away.

Hi Janice-you've been missed.Sorry to hear about your teacher-and so sad the thought of sending mail to someone who would never receive it.I lost one of my teachers as well who had become close to the family-it is upsetting because no opportunity for farewells.Leaves a gap where the person was.

Wow...I'm all warm and fuzzy! I didn't think I'd been away that long! I kept checking in, except just after Christmas for a few days or so. Nice to know I was missed!
