Jan, you'll be surprised how fast year one goes. I still keep thinking "I must tell S. about that" and then remember I can't in the literal sense. My house is still not sold so I'm still stuck behind the proverbial donkey cart on life's freeway. But I keep telling myself there's probably a very good reason that is not obvious to me yet (as in the value of the rand will soon increase by 20%) or maybe buying a house in the UK is not the right decision - it may be somewhere else yet to be dreamt of. It's not always easy to get motivated when on one's own and the autumn weather, which is positively arctic to me, is a bit uncomfortable. Tedious jobs like sorting paperwork, bills, insurance, bank stuff is hard to get started on. I'm at my best in company so I seek it out even if it just means talking to someone on the bus or in a cafe. I had a wonderful hour long chat with a woman I shared a table with in M&S cafe on Saturday. Talked about everything under the sun. Bottom line is there's no way back. It's a tunnel but there is light at the end, in fact there's light the whole way down the tunnel. It's one way and we have to go forwards, day by day, week by week.You can do it! We all can.
