1st January 2009

Firstly, a reflection on 2008 - a year of immense change for me. I quit my job of 11 years, I moved away from Birmingham for a while, I lost some weight, I went to the gym, I did some childminding, I turned 30 and I left my family and friends behind whilst I started to travel the World..... I think I did pretty well!

So, in the words of Julius Caesar, 2008 for me, "Veni, Vidi, Vici..." - I came, I saw, I conquered! I'm pretty proud of myself I have to say!

Onto 2009, it doesn't get much better than starting it in Sydney does it? Considering that I didn't get to bed until 3am and spent all day in the sun yesterday, I'm going to be taking it easy today - a proper clear out day! I sort out some stuff to send home in the post and get up to date with my journal, my itinerary and do some washing!

I don't venture out of the apartment but I treat myself by opening my bottle of sparkling shirley shiraz and some christmas cake!

Its so nice to be able to just rest! I don't feel guilty about it at all and I make the most of it - looking at what I want to do and see around Sydney, I have my work cut out for me over the next few days!

An early-ish night tonight after some pasta, some wine and some movies... good times!
