Goodbye 2010


In about 11 hours’ time, the clock will strike midnight and 2010 will be a thing of the past. To be honest, if I look back at this year, I can’t really remember much – there’s just two major things that stand out for me:

(1) I travelled overseas for the first time – which required kicking myself in the arse and throwing caution to the wind. It was rather liberating, and aided in proving to myself, once and for all, that it’s more than ok to think of yourself once in a while and not consider the opinions of others.

(2) (And this is definitely the most exciting thing that happened in 2010…) – I met the love of my life and he just so happened to feel the same way about me. It’s been wonderful, but it’s not come without its own challenges. One thing’s for sure – the path I’ve generally travelled has never been easy – there’s just always been something along the way – even if it was just a teeny weeny little speedbump. But it’s ok – somehow, they’re always overcome.

What will 2011 bring? I have no idea and quite honestly, I don’t want to think about it. I’m not the type to draw up a list of resolutions just because it happens to be the end of one year and the beginning of another. One shouldn’t just make goals and resolutions because it’s a tradition – but rather – do it because it’s really something you want, whether it’s 1 January or 23 October – doesn’t really matter.

What I will try to do though, in 2011, is attempt to learn how to take things in my stride…one step…or half a step…at a time.

Happy New Years and all the best for what lies ahead! Cheers!



The Twilight Zone


Uuuuurm, so there’s not much to say – I feel like I’m in a bit of a Twilight Zone at the moment (and no, I’m not referring to Twilight…as in the movie with the vampires and such…which, by the way, I love)….anyway, I digress – that always happens.

So where was I – ah yes, Twilight Zone. You know that time after Christmas and before New Years – it’s almost like the equivalent of No Man’s Land – it’s like a few days that have just been created to annoy you, because Christmas is over and now you’re waiting for New Years and then….just like THAT….it’s the beginning of a new year and you’re back at work, sitting in front of your PC (well, that’s how it is for me anyway), and you’re already planning the next Christmas – except, this time, you swear you’re going to get your Christmas shopping done 11 months before Christmas. Yeah, good luck with that.

GH’s been in Prague this last week and it’s been tough on us both. We’re used to being in contact on a daily basis, but this past week our contact has been sporadic and it’s taken its toll on both of us. But today we managed to chat via Skype for the first time in the last few days, and it was awesome 🙂 Absence really does make the heart grow fonder 😀 Even the sound of his voice made my heart melt completely and I sat in my lounge on the couch, like a dork with a HUGE smile on my face – if I were sitting in public, people would think there’s something wrong with me – so it’s just as well I was at home.

I managed to chat to his mate too and about a minute into the conversation he said: “Don’t worry, I’m keeping GH in line, *boy giggle*”, to which I aptly replied, “Good, because if you don’t, I’ll whip your arse…you’ll both get a beating from me.” Muahahahahahahahaha!

Aaaaaand just as I was typing out this  (rather boring, forgive me!) post, GH surprised me with a video call! 😀 Yay! We never get to video call when he’s home in Berlin because his webcam doesn’t work – so you can imagine the extent of the dorky smile that’s on my face NOW! Ha!! I shall sleep in complete peace and happiness tonight!
