A 5 hour cuppa!

“So, let’s meet for a cup of tea” slowly becomes a lot of giggles, tonnes of laughter, honest chats, confessions, swapping of ideologies, one knows they have found a kindred spirit.

Today was one such day and I want to mark it, mark it for posterity about how wonderful a feeling it is to meet someone special, someone beautiful and someone so very genuine!

If there is one thing I believe in, for a strong foundation of friendships, these moments are important but they are better when they have been a long time coming… a friendship that sparks from the moment you meet is good but inseparables from point 0 fizzles as quickly as it starts and thus, I consider myself extremely lucky that it took us over 3 years, innumerable parties to have this beautiful one on one.

What a fab way to kick off this week! If this is what 2016 has in store, I am even more excited 🙂 x

The year that was…

2015 will remain ingrained in my mind as one of the best years ever…

  • Some fantastic holidays
  • Great personal learnings
  • Key achievements realised
  • Good friendships strengthened and weaker friendships let go
  • Put myself first and accepted it without guilt
  • Meditated, loads and love the feeling
  • Hosted some epic parties
  • Attended some amazing parties
  • Loved more than I disliked about the year
  • Fantastic relationship with Red

And MOST importantly

  • I have learnt to accept my opinion- it’s not about sharing it with anyone else or even acting on it but being at a place where I can see the facts for what they truly are

I am going to miss you 2015. Looking forward to an even better 2016.
I made a promise in Dec 2012 to never let any other year be that horrible and am delighted to find each year get better and better and better.

Happy new year all- enjoy 2016 at least as much as I enjoyed 2015. Love x

And then 2013 became 2014!

So, as 2013 ends up, I remember the words I said at the beginning of the year: “it promises to be full of promise, optimism, results and achievements!” AND…. I was right- 2013 has been a fantastic year, a year of fun, a year of partying, a year of adventures, a year of learning, a year of love and a year with many laughs. I have had a great year. Thank you 2013.

And hello 2014.

2013 was my ‘foundation year’- it was the turning point year after the terribleness that was 2012. I didn’t like that year and 2013 made it you didn’t leave with the same taste in my mouth. However, I think 2014 has more exciting, even bolder things in store for me. I feel 2014 could be THE year- the year that will really and truly define what I have been working towards for a very long time and if it isn’t, it will almost definitely be the year that will take me closer to it- personally, professionally, emotionally, spiritually.

I cannot wait to embrace you closer to me 2014- it’s gonna be a helluva ride so tighten up that seatbelt and kick it off already 🙂

Goodbye 2013

In Jan 2013, I told Moo that this was the year I wanted to fall in love just to know I could and that I had really, truly moved on and guess what, I did.

2013 has been a good year, a tough year, a fun year, an enlightening year but most importantly- an amazing year ‘cos of Red. He has totally taken me by surprise and I am absolutely over the moon we are so happy and so strong.

Sometimes you fall in loveThank you 2013 for being so good to me, may your successor be even better though 🙂

And so begins 2013…

… a new adventure
… some new excitement
… a better year- well, it really can’t get worse than the last!

And what better way to capture it than a facebook status I saw!

new year wishes

Dear 2012- thanks for all the lessons, the joys, the downs, the hope, the darkness and the memories- good & bad, but it seems, we were at an impasse and not going anywhere so here’s to us parting ways. I am sorry I met another year- it’s called 2013 and it promises to be full of promise, optimism, results and achievements!

dance, love, sing, live

The day that was

What a day! What a year!! What a decade…

Yesterday was one of the most awesome days I have had in this holiday- maybe because it was my only ME time completely- I went to 2 gorgeous temples to kick off the day and the hike was amazing- 6 kms in 3 hours, uphill, downhill, all terrain but so serene, so calming, so peaceful, I loved it. And then on to a floating village before getting to Phnom Penh.

Now, red wine on an empty stomach is a surefire way of me getting drunk really, really quick and especially when my head is full of dreams I want to achieve- kinda linked with the theories I was discussing a couple of days ago. So anyway, post a pretty sh!tty dinner, with no water, the red wine went straight to my head and I was VERY drunk…. which meant that since we had to come to the hotel to take our credit card, I was put to bed.

Now, what transpired is this and something so not me, yet so me:

30 mins or so later, I woke up and crossed the road to sit on the parapet by the river, enjoy the breeze and just sober up- it was lovely till a sleazy guy thought I was a prostitute!!!!!!! Ugh- yeah I know my top was awesome and it looked well and yes, I was in a happy mood but still!

Not sure how long I sat there, but eventually decided to go into a few bars (I had absolutely NO cash so not sure what I was thinking) and partied with many random people- there were these really nice Polish dudes who had terrible English and so we were using all sorts of sign language to chat, discuss and have a laugh. They got me a few drinks and I promised them a good time in Ireland in return- wonder if they will contact me or even find me since I wasn’t using my name! I hope they do.

I decided to walk to the river again but as I was crossing the road, I bumped into a really cute American- kinda preppy looking but really nice who I ended up chatting to for ever- it must have been a good few hours because my phone shows me ringing Mr. I at 5:16 am when I got back to an empty room!

The weird thing is the lack of hangover today, the feeling of completely uninhibition, the lack of clarity still in my head about achieving my 3rd dream- my gut tells me it’s time and it’s close but I feel there is an unidentified obstacle in my path… and it’s driving me crazy! My friends all think I am being blind and stupid yet I don’t see it that way though in the past, my friends have almost always been right and shown me the path. I am so confused but I feel happy and content and that’s a great start to 2011.

What a year 2010 was, I did so much, What a decade it has been- from street partying in Thailand to riverside dining in Cambodia, I sure as hell came a long way! Ha!


Happy New Year all- may 2011 be the year of new dreams being achieved, old dreams being fulfilled, laughter, happiness, self-satisfaction and contentment in every which way.

Love x
