Apologies, as I know it’s been a while. Alas I’ve been too busy fighting through a bought of bad luck to seek any fortunes recently. Long story short, I’ve cut my loses and returned home to Cornwall to recuperate. On leaving Cardiff earlier today I felt it fit to open one last cookie (for it is where I started this blog after all). Last things packed up, last clean and clear round, fresh cup of tea and…
Today’s insight: there is good in every situation, just have to look for it.
Initial thoughts: when I had finally finished all of the packing and cleaning in preparation to move back home I paused to open this cookie. It really made me smile, for I had already told myself a similar thing earlier in the morning. Last night, when packing up all my stuff, I found myself getting rather emotional. I realised that I was leaving cardiff, as my home (I know I’ll be back at points, but it’s not the same) and that suddenly hit me hard. A lot of memories came flooding back as I thought about the time I spent there. The thought of leaving seemed a tad sad… Yet, the dawn cast new light and with it a much more positive feeling about the past few years of my life. Instead of letting any sadness set in, I chose to recount the better times and ending up leaving with a smile on my face. For no matter how hard it got at points, overall I think I can say I had a good time in Cardiff. Also very grateful to the good friends I made, as they are really what made the good times!
Now when I got home, Mother treated us to a buffet banquet at our local thai/chinese. Lovely, as we know exactly what we want and it’s always brilliant. Nom nom nom. And as is the tradition, we got fortune cookies with the bill. So, a double whammy today!
Tonight’s insight: a half solved problem will be entirely solved next month.
Initial thoughts: I have many half solved problems at the moment… I wonder which one it will be!
(p.s. this post was written on the day I left Cardiff, yet I only just I realised I hadn’t published it)
Follow up: so over a month on and I can happily report that at least one half solved problem is sorted. The problem: what to do with my immediate future. The resolution: go to London and get into the wine business! The opportunity came up as a friend is opening a little, independent wine shop in Acton and asked if I wanted to get involved. And there I was looking for something to throw myself… The opportunity to a) work for someone I know; b) learn about wine, whilst being paid and c) kick about London for a while, well it just sounds super to me!
Since now the initial offer has been made official, and gratefully accepted, I have been up to London and also secured myself a flat. This move feels like a move in the right direction, as if suddenly everything is falling nicely into place for once.
So overall, it’s big t’ings ahoy, as I believe this is going to be a rather exciting journey that I’m about to embark on.
