Oh jeez....where do I start??!!

I'm back! Well..... sort of.

I returned from my jaunt over east a few days back but I'm only now opening LJ (for reasons I'll explain below) and I feel sooooo out of touch. You've all been so busy lately and I have no idea where to start to try and catch up.

Firstly ... the holiday highs and lows ...

The Highs:

Catching up with my family - ALL of them. Not often we are all together so it was kinda special (but also full on!)

Seeing Melbourne again after a few years away. I forgot how vibrant and interesting the place can be.

Meeting up with the absolutely wonderful missyjack. This was a real highlight and I am sooo proud of myself for not chickening out! It was a first for me - putting a face and actual person behind a name. And even though I was fairly nervous about it, I had no need to be. She's as awesome in real life as she is on line and I feel privileged to have been able to meet her. Thanks again sweetie - it still brings a smile to my face when I think about of brief time together.

The Lows:

Missing my own personal space. A much as I loved seeing the family again there is nothing quite like getting home to my own space.

Seeing The Day the Earth Stood Still. I went in with low expectations anyway, but even that didn't help. At least I caught up on some much need sleep.

Having a massive argument with my husband about the time I spend on SPN.
