Post surgery

I'm recovering from surgery - the first time I've been through this! I'm not sure how I feel, if truth be told. I guess I'm relieved it is over, but I am also rather apprehensive as I am facing the results of tests which determine if I need further treatment or not. Here's hoping that someone is looking down on me and will hand me an early Christmas present.

I know one thing for sure ... gone are the days when I walked through life feeling indestructible. I have a very sobering sense of vulnerability right now.

Going skiing!

It's been almost a year since I wrote a post on this thing. Work, life and just about everything else seems to get in the way of it. I have also not been invited into the Oman blogging community, so I am a bit on the outside really. However, I will keep plugging away at this and hope that someone out there reads it!

I'm off skiing next month in Whistler, Canada! I can't think of anything more different to Oman and experiencing all that the country has to offer, than to go skiing where it is bitterly cold an full of snow. I guess the mountainous landscape is common to both, as is the excitement!

The downside of all of this is that my next trip to Oman has to be put back to the winter of 2010/11. However, I am already making plans to spend Christmas and the New Year in the sun and warmth, surrounded by friends. It'll have a gap been 3 years by that time - long enough!
