    Nothing is going to change…

    Here is another favourite of mine, by George Benson.

    You can read the lyrics below..even if you can’t hear the song (YouTube link)!

    If I had to live without you near me
    The days would all be empty
    The nights would seem so long
    With you I see forever oh so early
    I might have been in love before
    But it never felt this strong
    Our dreams are young and we both know
    They’ll take us where we want to go
    Hold me now, touch me now
    I don’t want to live without you

    Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
    You oughta know by now how much I love you
    One thing you can be sure of
    I’ll never ask for more than your love
    Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
    You oughta know by now how much I love you
    The world may change my whole life through
    But nothing’s gonna change my love for you

    If the road ahead is not so easy
    Our love will lead the way for us
    Like a guiding star
    I’ll be there for you if you should need me
    You don’t have to change a thing
    I love you just the way you are
    So come with me and share the view
    I’ll help you see forever too
    Hold me now, touch me now
    I don’t want to live without you

    Something special

    A song by John Mellancamp

    Yours Forever

    Here we are in the grays of winter
    Here we are just me and you
    Hold my hand
    Let’s face tomorrow
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you

    This precious time
    We’ve only borrowed
    The autumn winds have blown on through
    A quiet thought will tell our story
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you

    So here’s some wings
    They’re yours forever
    And here’s some dreams that will come true
    Take those tears to wash your sorrow
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you
    Tomorrow still holds out its hands to you

    Hollingworth Lake, Rochdale, Lancashire

    Looking for exercise, activity, as part of  your New Year’s Resolutions?

    Hollingworth Lake covers an area of 130 acres (0.53 km²) and the path around it originally measured two-and-a-half miles, beneath the cold waters was the old hamlet of Hollingworth. The lake is still used for recreational purposes, and is classed as a national trust due to a nearby wildlife sanctuary. The lake was man-made in 1801 to supply water to the Rochdale Canal.
