Fitter. Happier. More productive.

Life continues to be busy, I must say. It’s a blur at the moment, but I’m happier than I’ve been in a good long while. And I was pretty darn happy to begin with…

I’m working hard and playing harder. I’m getting to spend time with people I care about, and am being utterly spoiled in the sheer volume of smiles, giggled, chats, hugs, kisses and high fives I’m getting.

Again, I count my blessings.

Take the last few days, for example. I finished work at seven on Friday, then whizzed down to London. An evening of tea and chat with the lovely Siobhan, and then we were joined by the GPB and HRHKOTG, and Steve and Anna and Craig. We just sat around eating toast and drinking squash and chatting. Blissful. Then Siobhan and I lay in bed just chatting and talking before falling alseep listening to a mix CD. It was like being a teenager again!

Saturday was Anna’s 21st, so after early rising and showers we had champagne for breakfast before heading off to Karmageddon – the biggest Join Meet of the year*. Hugging and giving out sweeties and helping people and dancing and smiling and spending time with awesome folk. Then to the pub to raise money and drink wine and meet new people and catch up with other people and surprise people and laugh and chat and hug and congratulate each other on smug club membership and pose for photos and just have a top, top evening.

Sunday morning was all about cuddles and tea. I love cuddles and tea. Then tea and gingerbread men in Covent Garden with Mlle Wilson and Alex. And then the boy and I just had the nicest time, going for Chinese, walking round the city, and generally having a lovely time. Then today was crazy with work. But isn’t work that much easier to handle with the Christmas break firmly on the horizon?

Brilliant. I’m off to write a few more Christmas cards.
