Welcome back to my blog. Happy New Year to all of you!
First I want to say yet another huge thank
you to all of you who are supporting me in my work, my blog and book reviews, the 90,000+ hits on my site show I must be doing something right! Thank you so much, I hope you all continue to visit the site and support me going forwards as I take on new and
I have officially launched my new Book Club - to join, just follow the instruction on my front page and I look forward to having you join me. Hurry
though, January's read will be revealed at the end of this week.
This month I'm thinking about funny little rituals and superstitions that we all have. My mum had a few of
them, for example, if your right hand itches, she'd say "Rub it on wood, make it come good". This is because your right hand itching is lucky and means you're going to receive something, money or somesuch, so dutifully, each time my right hand itches, I find
the nearest piece of wood I can, table top, doorframe and I scratch my hand on it. Do you know what? it is usually correct and within a day or two of my right hand itching, I've received whatever it was in the post. The kicker is to ignore it if your left hand itches as it means "left to leave" so you're due a bill or something that means you will need to spend money.
are other rituals I stick to as well, just out of a long formed habit. Such like not doing laundry on New Year's day as it is bad luck and for some reason I always put my right foot first when I climb stairs. (Never did know why, even now).
What about you? What rituals or superstitions do you have? care to share?? let me know. If it is funky enough, it might even feature in a short story of mine!
That's it for now, I'll be back later I promise. In the meantime, stay safe, and as always, Keep Reading!
