The last days of the year… As for many a moment to ponder back.
Many good and enjoyable things happened this year. But the last months were a bit chaotic, to say the least.
First there were the problem with my own health. They did hit hard, but slowly but surely I am recovering from them. learned something from that… to value my health. I never will be a health freak, but my way of living will be a more healthier one. A little more care about food and drink… a bit more exercise (bicycling and swimming). Having said that, that doesn’t mean I will not go and have a lot of fun with my friends in the local cafés and bar.
Then just before Christmas my mother was taken into the hospital. Really don’t know what to think about her situation. It is something between good and real bad.
So Christmas gave a empty house… and so will the changing of the years. It is good to have friends in this kind of times.
After Christmas I got the news that Ryan, the old pony, was put to sleep on the first Christmas day. It has been many months since I have seen her, but still the news made me sad. After all Ryan has been for many year part of my daily life.
The day after Christmas a huge crash of two servers at the company where I work. Stress and panic all over. After many hours we finally got things working again. Most things are operational, but that doesn’t mean this suffering will be over for the next working days. Many things have to be checked and corrected again… not even to mention the people who will be complaining about “minor things” as that their screen has a different color or that the layout of their mail program is different.
Of course nice things happened as well is the last weeks.
Had a great evening with Patrick at the Markt 2. And Christmas Eve with Marion and her friends was wonderful as well.
Got a digital SLR (Nikon D40). I am aware that it is not a professional camera, but still it is a very nice camera to have and it will beat any compact camera with ease, as a lot of customer SLR’s.
From one thing comes another they say… In February I will start to follow course in SLR photography. It will be fun… maybe the evening with the models most (just kidding).
Funny. I just read on the blog of my friend Patrick that his life is change from one of living week by week to one of planning forward again, while my life is changing from one living week by week to living day by day… Both are good I guess.
