Went to the dentist and had half my cracked tooth removed. Sounds like the tooth will have to go in total. Cost me a cool 120 smackers. Am not impressed at all as I had better things to do with the money.
I have never been a great on gor keeping a diary. Looking back on my life is not something that has ever been a highlight for me. I guess when you don’t achieve things you setvout to do it is easier to pretend they never mastered.
The down side is that you get to 51 and you have failed to achieve as much as you Set out to do.
I have decided to change this. 2014 is going to be the year that I do more than I have before. Or die trying!
Ok, enough of the new year cliche bullshit. I’m over it already.
2014 is not going to change me all thst much. I add m who I am and quite happy about it. Now there are things about me that I wish to improve on for sure, but to want to radically reinvent myself -yeah nah. I am happy in my own skin and reasonably content with how things are going.
Wench and I are getting on great. I feel that finally I have found some one with whom being myself is not at odds to the relationship. The fact that she has as much a deviant mind as I do is a nice twist. I see 2014 being the start of a fun time exploring the possibilities that being a couple has to offer.
I have never been one to make detailed plans for the year ahead. I guess this is why I have been not as successful as I perhaps should have been. It strikes me that perhaps I need to change this and make some plans for the new year.
So here are some things that I wish to do in the next 12 months – in no particular order.
Ok. Not stellar goals but some things worth looking at attaining.
The end of another year. 2013. This year has been one with many changes, some highs, some lows, and some more of the same.
Added wench to the stable. This acquisition has proved to be benificial, and shows some long term promise.
Switched jobs finally and am finally getting away from the service desk. While it will be tough to give up the roster, it is time to move on.
Mick departed the land of the living, and went to the great bowling club in the sky. He will be missed, but it’s better that he is no longer suffering.
I didn’t suddenly become a millionaire. This was a traffic oversight on my part.
Just back from my whirlwind tour of the Bay of Plenty. Had a great few days away with karen and family. Got to meet some new people, played some magic and went for some long walks. I also got to eat too much and visit with family and friends in Waihi. All in all a good time away.
Have also come in contact with some interesting new people who we plan on visiting with when we are down in Wellington next. Should be fun times coming up there, although I can not share too many details on here!
Made it into Waihi for XMas fun and games.
So here I am, in whakatane (or just outside of). I wasnt planning on being here, but Wench made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Now I just have to find ways to occupy my time.
A lot has happened this year, with the death of my Father, the issues Peter has been battling with, my relationship with Wench, and then the decision to change jobs. On the whole it has not been all that bad.
