2015 beckons with excitement

A week of 2015 has passed. Already! Awwwks. :/

This was my Tweet-of-the-morning, this morning. (Will I ever get past micro blogging and onto more serious blogging? *sighs*)


Hubby took me on a lovely holiday-cum-sort-out-our-storage break in South Africa.


There was fun and laughter, family and friends. And tears for the emotional moments. Like finding this…

and these…

Finding myself back in Doha on Christmas day took me into the pits of despair….”Nooooo! I don’t want to be here!”

But after a week of moping (couldn’t even walk the dog!)…I was reminded of a gorgeous teapot I once saw while window-shopping with my best friend…

…it said: “BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED”.  The moment stuck with me, since I was on my way back to Doha then too. Right, let’s do this! Get on with life in the Middle East!

2015 beckons with excitement…I don’t have to feel it in my bones, it’s a fact! 😀 We’ll be grandparents for the first time in 10 weeks from now *huge grin breaks out*; I’ll be graduating after passing my Bachelor’s degree (with distinction) *grins more widely*; joining a library association; volunteering (for practical experience); and finally, studying more on Indexing/Cataloguing. A busy year indeed! God willing!

I guess this blog will move on from recording Distance Learning experiences, to more day-to-day posts (or in my case, more month-to-month posts 😉 ), in my quest to chase my dream of finding that perfect “bookish” job.
