Sunday Before Christmas

It’s Sunday night and I’m having a cup of tea of sorts. Well, not so much a cup of a tea, more a herbal infusion, whatever that means. And even though it’s called a “herbal” infusion I’m sure it can’t be all that healthy. I mean, it tastes so good, it couldn’t possibly be healthy.

Five months ago I was on the other side of the world having a wonderful time, blogging about my adventure. And here I am on a Sunday night, blogging about a cup of tea. It’s tragic, eh?

Cranberry, Raspberry and Strawberry herbal infusion

Though this particular one does remind me of Sweden, as it’s a combination of Cranberry, Raspberry and Strawberry. I never really “got” the cranberry thing until I went to Sweden this year, and there they have it with just about everything including meatballs. And now I’m hooked.

After an early morning call to go to the hospital – Colin is still having some problems, but they seem to have sorted it out now – I haven’t done all that much today.

I stayed up far too late last night listening to music. Yeah you gussed it, lots of Swedish pop. Alcazar, Magnus Carlsson, Shirley Clamp and Robyn to name but a few. And so I ended up having an early afternoon nap.

And I’ve been working on my “Year In Review” post for December 31, something I’ve been doing every year since I started this blog in 2002. So far, it’s been a real pleasure to work on, as I feel I’ve actually made some progress on my life this year.

Last year I wrote about how much I was looking forward to 2008…

As I sit down to write this “year in review”, I’m conscious that I’m more interested in what’s ahead in 2008 than what occured in 2007. Not that it was a bad year in my life, it’s just that I’m approaching 2008 with a great deal more excitement than I approached 2007

Ironically, I’m feeling much better about life, much happier about myself than I was this time a year ago. There were some “dark times” along the way, but at least I had the travel goal which got me through.

As I’ve been working on this year’s post I’m conscious that, at the moment I have no great goal in mind for the next year. I have something in mind for the year after, but next year remains a little uncertain for me. I suspect there might be a few changes for me at work, and something for the better. But yes, no great plan.

Maybe the cup of tea and a good long walk before dinner tonight will help with inspiration?

Or maybe that’s just the way life is…

  1. I utterly adore those cranberry, raspberry and strawberry infusions, I have a drawer full of them and drink at least 4 cups a day at work (can’t drink proper tea and coffee makes me too wired) and am constantly being asked what I’m drinking because it smells so heavenly.
