Last Day of 2015

On the last day of 2015

On this day, the last day of 2015, I am planning to relax with friends and family, have a few quiet moments of reflection and to raise a glass in toast to all those who should be here, but, for one reason or another, are not here or not with us.

Looking back, It has been a most eventful a year. 2015 was a year of much hectic effort and major events, much stress and many glorious moments. So here is the summation:

Looking back at 2015

On the first day of the year:

  • I watched the sun rise over the Angkor Wat.
  • Rode an elephant at Angkor Tom.
  • Visited several other ancient Khmer temples
  • Watched an Aspara dance performance.
  • On thid day I also received some that a long time fried of mine has passed away.
  • Wrote some prose and some (questionable) poetry

In May I was in Peru,and I watched the sunrise at Machupicchu.

In August, after over 7 years with Unisys I put in my resignation.

In September I started with ASG Group.

Late November and December was a mad race to get work finished off. In all it was five x 60 to 70 hour weeks in a row, followed by a very relaxing trip to Tasmania

On the family front:

  • My Father was operated on after badly damaging disks in his lower back.
  • My Mother was operated on to remove some cancerous growths form her insides.
  • My Brother and his wife bought a town house.
  • Lindsay, Kyle and Beth also bought a town house in Banks.Lindsay and Kyle live there with their partners and some house mates.
  • I got to renovate the kitchen in the “kids place”. Did a decent job, even if I say so myself.

On the last day of 2015, I got a new phone, set it up, and got it all working, so that I can turn off my old one, as befits the occasion.

In all I am very happy with how 2015 worked out, despite all the stress and drama.

I think that 2016 is shaping up to be just as spectacular and just as good. Perhaps even better in some ways.
