Yoga always calms the mind…… and then coffee with a great friend. I am finding it a bit difficult to actually come to turns with not have daily contact with Aline and also knowing that my sisters are going to be just down the road and my Mom and Dad a 1 1/2 hour flight away. I have these moments of hysteria , where to cope I laugh hysterically to ensure that I don’t cry. I have made such wonderful friends over the years and i think that is going to be the hardest for me to leave behind. I have definitely realised that I will be the emotional side to the move and Steven will be the more tangible side.

I cannot bring myself to accept that I will not have a good friend to talk to on a daily basis, to just pick up the phone and have a good yack…. not that I find that I battle to make friends, but I do battle to make intimate friends. Over the years you find those friends that you can trust and who you can share your world with and I have been lucky enough to have a few of those, we melt away from each other for a while but always come back together – My sisters (of course), Aline, Julie, Magdel, Joanne, Colette, Lynn, Brenda, Belinda (and with it your other halves because you are of course the better half!!); my old friends from school who I have re-met via Facebook – Ronel and Tammy and you know the other 60 of you; my friends from the old school – Louise, Barbara, Carol, Summer and my new set of friends from the new schools – Gail, Therese, Angela, Colleen …… my art friends (Jo Mc the most) and scrapbooking friends ….. they say that if you can count your friends on one hand you are lucky, if you have more than that you are blessed. I have been very blessed to have known and loved so many friends. I hope that I will be blessed to see you all again and spend some more wonderful time with you all, it has been very special for me to have known you all – don’t be strangers and get your bums onto Facebook!!!!

OK, sob no more of that, else I will have to walk around the house laughing hysterically…. let me go get my tranquilisers first!!!
