So Much Going On

So here we are, my last day of 32 ... showee it has been quite the roller coaster year. The worst break up and the best make up ever. And lots of amazing holidays :)

Right now, I can look back and say it was a good year, a year that has definitely ended with me in a very happy place, and a place I have been trying to get to for a long time. One that involves a plan for a future and a family and a partner. I am blessed.

Aside from the reflections on the highlights of my Thirty-Second year tho, it has been a quiet week generally. The Trucker had cricket on Monday night so I had a lovely quiet evening at home with the remote control and my cute little kitten-cat. She is such a funny little thing. I completely adore her and all her crazy noises.

On Tuesday evening SCM relocated to @samanthaperry's place for her birthday (which was last Saturday) dinner. It was a lovely evening with yummy food, as usual :) I'm planning on hosting my birthday SCM too ... but only in May.

Which brings me to another spot of news. Today The Trucker and I will be handing over another signed lease. We saw the place yesterday and it is pretty much the exact same unit as the one we signed for last time, but in the complex next door.  And this one has been done up nicely (new wooden floors thruout!) and we got to meet both the Managing Agent and the Owner (who was still busy with fixing things up) yesterday. We are not getting too excited yet, but am holding thumbs and crossing fingers that this is the one! And if it is ... moving date is 01 May! Whoop whoop. Which means we'll all (both of us and all our stuff into our new house and his sister into mine) move over the month of May. Very exciting folks :)

Oh, and in other exciting news, I planned a birthday party. I know, it is pretty much unheard of for me ... the last time I did anything really special was my 30th. Then I wasn't here for my 31st and last year I thought about organising something but it became too overwhelming when I, again, ended up with multiple groups with too many to host comfortably at home in each. It gets expensive doing all this hosting.

So this year almost slipped by without a whisper too ... till  I got a bee in my bonnet and decided I would go the "I'll be at this spot from this time, pop thru if you can" route with only just over a week's notice to people and see who could make it, because organising around trying to get everyone to make it is exhausting. So next Friday evening (all my May Saturdays are already booked) it's on. And the invite list is long ... and so many lovely people have already rsvped :) I'm looking forward to it and glad I made the effort :)

And I'm also excited for our mini-break to Kruger, which we leave for tomorrow :) Here's to seeing lots and lots of awesome animals and a wonderful "just the 2 of us" break!

Yes, life is good :)
