Happy New Year!

I hope you are all having/have had fun celebrating wherever you are. We’re in Zurich, watching fireworks over the lake (or that’s where I hope we’ll be when this posts…)

Happy New Year!

I’m finally back from my New Year’s adventures with a camera full of photos and lots of stories to tell. Not tonight though! After a 3:15 a.m. wake up, one flight with some pretty scaqry turbulence (and believe me, I’m not usually one to be worried by turbulence!) followed by a delayed connecting flight then a 3 and a half hour train journey it’s fairly safe to say I’m exhausted! The only thing I’ll be doing tonight is crawling into my bed… but I had to pop online to say hello to you all first! Starting tomorrow, I’ll be sharing my New Year’s resolutions with you and telling you all about Madeira. I will also be doing my best to catch up with all your blogs and reply to your comments, but that may take a while. For now I shall simply wish you all an absolutely amazing 2014 with plenty of good times and hopefully no (or at least very few) bad!

Happy New Year, Confuzzledom readers!

Happy New Year!

Hello!

If you can read this then it’s worked – my first ever scheduled post!
I’m not actually on the computer right now, but somewhere in Luxembourg. Probably watching fireworks with a glass of sparkling wine in my hand.

A very happy New Year to you all! May 2013 be everything you hope for and more!

So this is the New Year…

We got back from Italy on Sunday and yesterday I was back at work. A little disconcerting going straight from being on holiday back to real life, but it was ok. And tomorrow I’m off again because it’s Three Wise King’s Day (or Epiphany as we English speakers tend to call it) which is a holiday here in Baden-Württemberg.

I actually have pretty high hopes for 2010. I wasn’t dreading going back to work yesterday (which, as some of you will know, is a definite improvement over this time last year) and I’m quietly optimistic that I’ll still have a job once my probation period is over – unless of course I’ve just jinxed myself by mentioning it on my blog. As for other aspects of my life… well, I have plans, but nothing really concrete to tell you yet so we’ll just have to wait and see. I have a notion that things may be looking up though.

So… resolutions… having utterly failed miserable on all of last year’s I’ve decided it to keep it simple this time. So my resolution for 2010 is just to be better. Less selfish, less self-critical, more emotionally intelligent, a better girlfriend… whatever. Just a better me in some way, however small. Surely even I can cope with something as general as that?

I also plan to complete my dissertation this year, but that’s not so much a resolution as something that has to be done whether I like it or not – and which I’ll probably end up doing all in one weekend right before the due date but let’s not talk about that for now…

A very happy New Year to all of you.
