It has been a long time since I updated. I seemed to have abandoned this poor little blog of late. What has everyone been up to?
Well, I did my three weeks singing in Germany and surrounding countries, which was great fun and an interesting experience touring in a large group. People, by and large, are stupid, and group tours often has to lower to the most common denominator to function. Nevertheless, our guides and drivers were wonderful, patient and exquisitely organised and got us to all our gigs, accommodation and tours on time and cheerfully.
I followed this with a few days in Dubai visiting a girlfriend of mine from High School, who I get to see roughly every 5 years. Time passes by, and yet some people remain just wonderful souls to be around. Her life in Dubai is so different from our upbringing in suburban middle-class Brisbane. She consorts with high-fliers, is featured in local magazines and dresses in labels and brands beyond my comprehension (and budget). But somewhere, underneath it all, she is still the same girl I have always known, and can laugh and talk with for hours on end.
I returned home to go straight back into choir rehearsals again, and of course, Tap dancing classes which barely seem to have ended from last year.
Hmmm... what else have we been up to.... oh yeah, there is this as well....
12 weeks as of last weekend. I am fine, if a little exhausted and moody on occasion. Subtle is currently fine, if a little frayed with dealing with an alternately sick and moody wife, and an increasingly clingy cat.
