Inspiration strikes....!

I have been inspired to post again by a new friend who, like many of my blog buddies, also posts to his blog daily.

There have been some changes and challenges in my life since I last posted but things are really looking better on all fronts. Workwise, I am employed again and have been with my new company for five weeks. They are a much better crowd than places I have worked before and the atmosphere is more relaxed although also productive. I am involved in reception and switchboard which I endeavour to make more interesting than it sounds. I also have responsibilities in accounts and office administration. It is a busy position and puts me exactly where I always want to be, at the centre of the action!

Socially, I have started to attend more events being held by the social groups which I joined earlier this year. I have attended a nature hike and a town walk, both followed by a visit to the pub with congenial company, a music festival and several more events planned for coming days. Will definitely be posting more about these outings as they happen.

I have also met a very special person who I have shared some memorable moments with and am really happy spending time with. Early days yet but we plan to spend more time together as we really enjoy each other's company.

Last Friday, I was fortunate to attend my company employee appreciation day where we unanimously chose to do the Ama Zwing Zwing zipline canopy tour out at Amanzingwe near Harties. I was keen to undertake this adventure but must admit to feeling a little trepidation, as we were kitted out in our harnesses, helmets and thick leather gloves, a feeling which worsened somewhat as we climbed the first platform and gazed down from the dizzy heights to where we would we ziplining across. The first cable was very wobbly for everyone but by the sixth cable slide, our group were handling it like pro's and having so much fun. And then it ended. We weren't disappointed for long though since we were treated to a slap up lunch and some alcoholic beverages after that. Much joking, teasing and laughter ensued...!

(This pic is not of my colleagues but just to give an idea of the terrifying ordeal we mainly non-adventurous types all went through!)

Its been great to touch base again with my blogging buddies (hopefully you haven't all forgotten who I am) and to discover that I can still write.....!
