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 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. 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 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 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 devalmont
is, I will be.
All the best for 2006._ebb_
