I have written 2 other blogs to post today, a year in review (pretty Long!) - but part of me felt it was a ‘hey look what I’ve done this year’ show off blog. Not the intention, good to write, may be rewritten!!!
Then I did one about training and staying motivated in the cold (well cold to me!)
Then as I wheeled my case from marble arch to green park to get the tube to Heathrow I started thinking about the dafter things I’ve done in 2017 and I realised how easy it was for me to be negative and down on life and forget the fun and daft things I’ve done !!!
So as I carried on wheeling - changing hands, because I got tired, almost falling over my case a few times and clipping my own heels - don’t ask, I kept thinking of the laughs I’ve had. Sooooo here’s my 2017 daft year in review .....
My birthday- great afternoon evening, wine of course involved and at midnight like Cinderella I disappeared home. No Prince Charming and no slipper left behind, just a couple of hundred dollars worth of bill!! Oopps. 14 missed calls later I called back and paid the next day!!!
Handstands, thanks to Portia Page have been attempted and failed in various places.
Speakeasy in San Fran. Fab experience - I’d paid for a seat to see the show. I sat far longer than I knew to - you’re meant to wander the whole set and see all the various stories !!! How was I to know! I did see heaps more however, curiosity didn’t get the better of me that day.
Also San Fran - getting a weeeee bit lost running in an attempt to find the crookedest street. You’d think it would be easy there, the roads are quite gridded. Yup, erm no not for me!!! I ran up and down, left and right, along roads I knew “yes I was going the right way”. Erm no I wasn’t .... on return and looking at the map I think I’d run around it and never on it! I did find it the next day. Only one example of my many adventures of getting lost...
Which was the other day running round Hyde Park. Not lost but 49minutes ( yes I was counting, damn cold) instead of 30mins. Now if it hadn’t been cold maybe ok, I knew to keep the park on my left - until it became houses!!?!? Huh? My internal gps works better than I give it credit for.
Which brings me to iPhone map and the blue dot always going the wrong way. What do you mean it’s me??? Yeah ok ok we’ve established directions are not my strong point.
No end of daft training sessions, giggles with clients - you guys are great and really do the daftest things I ask!!! I love playing games, missing the ball, hitting each other, and bursting balloons!!! Work parties, picking up clips with a hook round waist - you had to see it to laugh at it!
Friends - oh lord no end of sober and drunken silliness. Christmas gingerbread house building, joke offs (not me but slightly daft people I know...), daft conversations with strangers, designing a party with various tents the best one including a huge chocolate fountain !!!
I’ve had wacky photo shoots - plastic, slime, mud, corn flour, shaving cream, crocodile teeth and rope.... totally awesome.
Random chats till late at night.
Random meetings, not love at first sight!
Tears of sadness as well as with joyful meaning
abundance, maybe not as much as alcohol drunk.
Kms run, skips jumped, water splashed and body weight hoisted around.
Plants surviving, maybe not thriving ....!
Personal growth so many learnings.
It has been a fun year.
