Back in Kuwait!

After a glorious summer lounging on beaches in Bali, travelling around Australia and spending some quality time with my family in Canada and getting my fill of country music: I am back and in action in Kuwait!

I know it has been a long time since I have blogged - but I was too busy living this summer to settle down to a computer and write up my daily going on's. I totally had a serious case of writer's block too.

So - since my last update I will fill you in on what you have missed.

The new boy I mentioned in may (now to be called CPU) and I had a horrendous fight right before I left - leaving me with little to no hope or desire to re-kindle a romance after a summer apart, not to mention some saucy escapades around the world this summer.

However CPU and I continued to talk over the summer and our friendship has grown. He mentioned that he wants to date in-exclusively and I can respect that, after dating exclusively got us absolutely no where, but I am not sure if I like that idea. I have told him that I will think about it and let him know when I am read, IF I am ever ready for that.

Work has started again and is in full swing - very excited for this year to start!! I can only hope that it is as much fun as last year. There are always new challenges when moving into a new role and new responsibilities, but I could not be MORE excited!

The new Expats have arrived at work, and they seem like a really cool bunch. I am sure you will hear more about them here!

The American has moved a ways away so I am disappointed that I don't get to see her as much as last year. However, true friends stay true and I am sure that we will do so!

In short, things are different but not so different - I can't wait to see what shenanigans I get up to this year.

Stay tuned for more of life in Kuwait this year! I will try to focus more of daily life, where and what to eat and all the juicy details!
