Yay for Holidays

You would think that having 11 days off would mean lots of blogs but it was not so. It has though been one of the best holidays ever….

I decided that I was not going to make any plans at all. I was just going to hang around my home and read and go to the beach and see movies and talk to my friends and get to know my area and most importantly relax. I think that I have done splendidly and it has been great. Managed to finish two books and I am about half way through U2 on U2. Tom has finished but that’s okay. I have also done heaps of walking. In fact I must have walked almost the whole of the city at least twice including a couple of trips up King Street and Glebe Point Road for coffees and movies. I saw Babel and Volver and I think both were very good films. I also walked to Darling Harbour for some timezone action, which was fun, I am starting to improve on the dancing machines although Ryan still kicked my arse. We also walked through the Botanic Gardens for a picnic and across the Harbour Bridge to Luna Park for ice cream and a ferry ride back. On New Years Eve Martin and I walked from Darlinghurst to Observatory Hill for the fireworks which as always were lovely and great to be my wonderful friends again and then back to Central for a bus. Finally there was the walk from Bronte to Coogee. Not to mention I did the Bay Run once and Martin and I ran to Sydeny uni this morning. We also went Putt Putt golfing with the house and the Gowies. I guess it is not strenuous activity but got to better than sitting at home. Wow I am not only feeling very relaxed but incredibly fit. I think the highlight has been all the time with the community and the spontaneity. As mentioned all happened with no plans.

I am feeling good about 2007. I think it is importnat to start the year refreshed and I am certainly that. So happy new year frriends. I hope that you are all feeling hopeful as well. If not I am very happy for you to borrow some of mine.
