What a Year ... Bring on 2009

Bless me Blog, it has been a while since I last posted something.

2008 has been a very challenging year for me. It was the start to a new life on my own and and has been filled with many ups and downs.

I began the year thinking that I would be ok on my own, I would manage and be able to look after myself. I am a stubborn person and don't like to admit defeat. I have now accepted that living on my own is something I can no longer afford to do.

A very wise man said to me a little while ago to "GOYA!" - get of your arse!! I thank you my dear and cherished friend.

I accept that there are somethings that I cannot change and are beyond my control but those that I can, I will.

So ... I will be looking for a housemate to ease the financial burden ... Any/All recommendations will be welcome ;-)

My resolution for 2009 is to be positive and move forward towards achieving stability in my life.

I have met some wonderful people and have made some great friends in the latter half of 2008 and look forward to sharing more fun times together.

My eldest daughter, Marissa, not only turned 18 this year but wrote her HSC. She excelled in her results and I am extremely proud of her.

My youngest daughter, Stephanie, turned 12 and celebrated her Batmitzvah. She made me very proud in her delivery of her speech and in the confident young lady she has become.

Marissa heads off overseas next year for at least 10 months and whilst I will miss her very much it will be an experience of a lifetime for her.

I hope that all my friends have had a wonderful Christmas and that 2009 is a good year for all.
