Countdown Begins

I have started the final countdown to a wonderful festive season which we will be spending with friends and family. I just love this time of the year, seeing that it's so cheerful, loving and colourful. I wish every day could feel this way. anyway, Christmas shopping is done, I'm so glad that I managed to pull this off so quick as the shopping centres is really getting hectic now, and I hate it to be in such a crowded space. I also managed to pull a few strings here and there and ensured that we raise some funds for a charitable organisation which assists homeless children, and we had a splendid day with these children. Playing, eating and just having some fun in the sun. Now of cause, every Christmas and New Year is catered for at our home. Except for this year We will be spending the 24th and Christmas day at our home, and all the family will be joining us for some snacks, food etc. then off we go for New Year which we will spend at my family, where we will be going out for Old/New years dance. I have to say I can't wait... To all of you who have supported me during 2008, thank you very much for all your comments and mails, I really appreciated it, and hope to hear from you in the year to come. If you travel, please travel safely and may you have a fantastic festive season and a stunning start to 2009!

A whole mouth full

Well I haven’t been able to write anything since September and I have to be honest, I really didn’t feel like it either. Since then so many things has changed in my life. Acupuncture is still underway, I still go weekly to be punctured all over, not sure when this will become enough in my life… seeing that all little things is starting to get the better of me. I really feel so moody these days, and the slightest little things will irritate the living daylights out of me. I suppose it’s just the time of the year when one starts to reflect on the past year, and realise that you still have not accomplished what you so hoped for. On the other hand, our two pups are great; there isn’t a day that they don’t fill my life with joy. Devont√© had a knee operation last month, and he healed very well. He is up and going again, and it almost seems as if he had no problem. On the other hand, Uschc√° is growing up so quickly, she is so sweet… sometimes I really think we should have named her licky tongue, cause every time she comes close to you she starts to lick you all over. She is rally gorgeous. On 15 December my cousins’ wife gave birth to their second child a healthy little boy, but on the other hand one of my friends also miscarried on the same day… so you find yourself in a whirl of emotions, glad for the one and heartbroken with the other one, especially because they have also been struggling to fall pregnant for a while, and all we can do is be there for them, listen and support where we are needed. Work wise… now this is a challenge, we are restructuring, O yes, be big “R” word: Restructuring. With this it really brings up a whole bunch of stuff, and even though I am not a permanent worker for this company and only contracting through my company at this one, it still influences you greatly. For once in my life I could say that I really enjoyed the team I’ve been working with, and now some of us are moving out, we will join new teams. I suppose change is the inevitable, and we would just have to settle in where ever we are moved to, however the uncertainty is killing me. They say that a change is as good as a holiday, but I doubt if this change will be as good as a holiday if we just come from holiday. Now it’s just the big wait to see what and where to from now. Really not a great place to be in prior to the festive season, and having to deal with this till January when these changes will effectively take place. Ag but I’ll have to quickly learn to place these thoughts on the sideline so that I can have a great festive and New Year. I’m greeting for now, but will make sure I add something more often. Thank you for all the mails received from you all so far. Enjoy the day

10th Anniversary

Today is officially our 10th Year of marriage! I just can’t believe how time fly, and with that being said, I can’t believe that I’m 10 years married. Today 10 years back, I woke up and spend a wonderful morning with all friends and family I so dearly loved, and the afternoon, more friends and family who has been there for the both of us since we were little, till the day we were joined as husband and wife. There have been so many days which were not the all moonlight and roses, but there were also the days where we were able to share the most wonderful memories and we cherish every single moment we had. Today, is the most wonderful day of our life, where we can look back on all those wonderful years together and be able to spend more wonderful years together as husband and wife…
