Just a quick note to say I won't be around these parts very much over the coming months. Myself and himself have chucked in work and have now started a whirlwind 4 month trip home to Ireland.
I'm currently in Canberra where I sat in on the Australian Parliament and tried to figure out what sort of bill they were 'yaying' and 'naying' too. In the end I really just wanted to know what the lady with the pole was doing down the back, it's a long story apparently.
Speaking of going AWOL, I was thinking the other day about how I am generally quite a lazy friend. I'm always there if someone needs me but I can go weeks and even months without seeing or speaking too some of my closest friends, even the ones that live in the same city as me. I am lucky I guess that my friends are the same as me in that sense and that there is never any bad blood between us for not being in contact.
I have a friend over here who rings her nearest and dearest friends at home at least once if not twice a week - mine are lucky if they get an email/text once a month and maybe a few photos. Again, I am a good friend, people tell me this! This other one just makes me feel bad...well, not bad really, just thoughtful.
Anyway, don't disown me, I'll be lurking a lot and posting as much as I can. VL
