The packing does not work with the partying and the rugby at all! Nor does blogging.
I finished work last Friday and haven’t really stopped since. It has to be said that my final day at work was not easy, but I feel so much better! According to a couple of friends, I look much better and non-stressy too. It proves that much as I don’t have a job, or a plan, this really was the best thing to do.
So, the updates:
Packing – pretty much done. I have really only the bits that I am wearing over the next week to worry about. Tidying and bining rubbish that I am not taking with may take slightly longer. Am going to try to get some done today, but I am having a very busy day which takes me onto…
Partying & Rugby – Am doing very well at the partying bit which ties in very closely with the rugby. For those of you who don’t know, this week is the Bermuda Rugby Classic. We have 8 teams of retired international players come down for a week to play rugby and drink more than is humanly possible. It’s messy but it’s great fun. And this ties me in nicely to my next point:
Tonight is my leaving party. A bit early, but it works out nicely given that tomorrow is Remembrance Day and a Public Holiday here in Bermuda. Woo hoo! I am hosting it at the Classic so that I can see the Lions (hopefully) whip the Boks, and to cheer the Canadians on in their valiant attempt to play a decent game and get a few more points on the boards. They’ve actually done well and taken a try in their last game… the first points they’ve taken in two years!
I have also been saving the best for last. I am an Aunty! My baby sister had her son yesterday lunch time. He is actually a real cutie. I was a bit worried he would be ugly and I’d have to say he had “character” or something, but no. He is lovely and cute and cuddly and just perfect!!
