sparkles - me

Storm's passed

Storm's passed. Literally and figuratively.


Went on a cleaning frenzy after I last posted and ended up calling Sis to bitch at her about the buggy. She's got the message now.

Then I sat down to type up reviews and comments on some of the round one winners over at the AVAs and as I was rewatching them (especially my judge's choice) I just got back into the right mindset and was feeling pretty damn good about myself.

And then the storm hit. Thunder, lightening, horizontal hailstones and rain (the wind's pretty strong).

I adore thunderstorms.

I stood out on my front step and watched as it passed directly overhead. It was awesome.

And now there's blue skies stretching out over the hills.

Right at this moment I feel so lucky to have the friends that I have, to live in Scotland, to have all the things I need and some of the things I want, to be me. New Year's Resolution? To remember this feeling when the bad times come, to know that the storm will pass.
sparkles - me

For days gone by...

I'm about to head out into it to bring in the bells down on the beach with a couple of old friends so I wanted to say to you all: Thank you for being there for me when I needed you in 2006, I wish I could have been better about being there for you.

May 2007 bring you everything you desire and, in the words of some obscure genius, 'lang may yer lum reek, wi ither fowks' coal, an' may the best ye hae iver seen, be the warst ye'll iver see.'

Happy New Year!
