Excited ....

Well that's it for another year. A visit to Blighty, tick, spend quality time with the family, tick, rush around like a headless chicken, tick, tie up loose ends, tick, return to gozo exhausted, tick.  Just enough time to catch my breath before the start of a great adventure in 2016. I love the beginning of a New Year, I love the expectation of what is to come. I love that time to reflect on what went by in the last year and what we can learn from all of that. A time for renewed optimism and a rush of energy. 
Being back on Gozo is a joy, despite January and February being the worst months weatherwise. We still get those fabulous blue skies more often than not and the people look happy and less strained than in the UK. The colour of the stone is sunny and not grey and it won't be long until the fields are filled with the wild flowers of an early spring again. We have carnivale to look forward to in early Feb, which is the culmination of 12 months hard work for all the costume makers and troop chroegraphers. What a spectacle that is. 
So... I must make plans and prepare, lots to do during the dark evenings. All the hard work of last year, I hope will now come to fruition. 


... and a nice little thought for us all to start a new chapter. xx

 If I want to be accepted as I am, then I need to be willing to accept others as they are. It is arrogant to set standards for others.
