planning my new life: today's agenda vs. the year's ambition

It's turning out to be quite hard,
to figure out where to settle,
what to do for money,
and all the associated admin.

Instead,
today I've arranged
four lunch dates,
two dinner dates,
three coffee dates,
four overnight stays,
and five very loose intentions for plans that still need to be agreed.




A couple of weeks ago, back in Johannesburg,
my clever friend Lucelles explained how each year
she adopts a word or saying that sums up that year.

Like
'back to basics'
or
'culture'
or
'new beginnings'...

That might involve giving up hair dye, or starting a vege patch,
or
going to the opera, or learning to jive,
or
changing jobs or moving house or breaking up...
get it?

Well, this year, I settled on making my word
'facetime',
since 2010 involved a lot of facebooking time
given my travel schedule and the never-ending exodus from London.

So,
in terms of today's agenda of planning my new life,
it's probably a fail - 
still freelancing, still moving around;
but at least I appear on target to fulfil this year's ambition!
