Today, I got a totally random pressie in the post from my Sis. It is gorgeous, fabby and wonderful, just like her. And I can pretty much promise I'll wear it until it we're both old mad cat ladys.

Love you Debi, thanks SO much chick. You're a total sneak by the way.

So a few observations / comments as I’ve been ever so remiss at updating (unless it was to tell you about hot Vikings, hot Vampires and hot GraveRobbers) (if you missed those posts, you’re missing out!).

There hereby follows a long list of stuff which may or may not interest you but I decided to cut it to avoid annoying people! )

All in all, life is good on balance. You lot might not be the sanest creatures on the planet (sorry [livejournal.com profile] eddy_, our hunt is doomed I fear) but you are all fab. Thanks for being you!

Wherever you end up sweetie, have a wonderful time. Safe travels and gimme the goss when you get back!

Your (jealous) sis xx

A rather belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you firstly.
Secondly, resolutions are something I never keep so I won't be making any.
Thirdly, I have now returned from my countrywide zip about (though I'm sorry for missing pubbage tonight, but [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and I really needed some together time).

This means a further two things; [livejournal.com profile] deborah_c, I am at your disposal this week. Let me know when is good (if you haven't already, which I'm about to check). [livejournal.com profile] gandalf_t_black - tomorrow evening would be favourable. Also, I could really do with catching up with the rest of you too which I'm hoping will happen soon.

In brief, I had two lovely family Christmases and a great catch-up with friends in my home town (some of whom I hadn't seen for literally years) at New Years. I'll try to do a proper write-up soon but I'm off now to return to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont - foodage then dvdness I think.

Oh! And [livejournal.com profile] min_ki - when you read this, if you're in North Carolina make sure you post? I'd love to know how you're getting on (and thanks for talking with me earlier, it really helped).

First and foremost,

Happy New Year

Here is to a good, peaceful one.

There have been quite a number of changes for me and my loved ones to deal with during 2005. I feel that it was often a bit of an uphill struggle but last night, it felt that we'd reached the sumit all as one and I'm convinced that whilst lots more changes are in store, they're going to be good ones (or at least, affirming ones which help you move on) rather than the chaos and confusion so many of you have known.

It was very difficult being away from [livejournal.com profile] devalmont who I missed terribly at midnight but I think this was the place for me to be. Next time round, wherever he is, I'm by his side as I doubt I could manage again. NYE is traditionally a couples night whereas Christmas is traditionally family. He is both and we didn't manage to be together either time.

Spending Christmas with my parents was very important to me this year and I'm really pleased I did. [livejournal.com profile] min_ki graduates this year and is unlikely to be able to get Christmas off. I've already decided that this year will be spent with [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and basically I think it will be some years before we're all able to be there at the same time again.

I spent my New Years surrounded by some of the most wonderful and amazing people I know and it was great to be together for what I think might be the last such comprehensive gathering. Lots of effort was generally made by people with costumes, the most impressive being [livejournal.com profile] reverend2001 with is Jareth impression. LOVED the wig!

These last 3 years in Brum have been fantastic due to a very special group of people who I miss dearly. It feels as if everyone is at a crossroads and different directions are on the cards for them all. So to everyone who came to HoG for the New Years party, thank you for making it a special last one for me. Next year, wherever [livejournal.com profile] devalmont is, I will be.

All the best for 2006.

I've spoken to my parents today - they've been out assessing the damage. They're ok as they live at the top of a steep hill, go camping all the time so have a gas stove to use for cooking and heat etc. Apparently the electricity isn't going to be on for some time yet, as the main substation was flooded and they're only just able to get in to clean it. It has then to be dried out and tested before it can be repaired so all in all...

The local radio stations are being bombarded by people offering their spare rooms for members of the 8000 homes which have been evacuated.

There's a makeshift Police Station outside M&S and the Fire Station has been relocated (both were flooded). The hospital was spared any major problems but the situation with the roads means that ambulances and everything else couldn't get through yesterday - today is marginally better as the water has started to recede.
