A Cause for Celebration.
Well 2 things to celebrate really.

Firstly, it will be exactly 10 years tomorrow that I upped sticks and moved to Kas.
My love affair with Kas started about 14 years ago and each year the pull got stronger and stronger and I was spending more and more time here. So 29th December 1999 I boarded a plane with my goods and chattels and started my new life here.
In the last 10 years I,ve had ups and downs - a long term relationship that I walked away from, owned 2 restaurants, help with the local street animals etc. etc.
I wouldn,t change a thing. Even the bad things shape us for the future.

Also this time last year I was in a bad place physically and emotionally. The chemo programme I was on was not working. It gave me thrombosis and every day I woke up feeling wretched.
The doctors suggested a new programme, without which I would be dead within 6 months. I didn,t really have much choice - guinea pig or ........

So here I am..... bright as a button (except for my recent blip), physically in pretty good shape and mentally ready to take on the world.

So I shall be raising a glass of bubbly (water) tonight and counting my blessings.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Great post, Soo!
And so typical of your whole philosophy on life - always accentuate the Positive and learn from the rest.
Hope 2010 proves to be a very good year for you, in every way, and would love to meet-up when we come over in the Spring/Summer.

Thanks everyone :)

I,ve always been a positive person. Having cancer hasn,t changed that. Probably made me even more determined. It certainly focuses the mind on the important issues in life.

Well another year is nearly done and dusted. I shall spend a few moments reflecting on the events of this year. I,ll send a kiss up to our star Pebble and then tread boldly into 2010.

Look forward, not back - you can,t change the past but you can shape the future.

Happy New Year Everyone.
