My dear body,

Thank you a gazillion times for holding up spectacularly through a massively hectic trip, and then a gruelling work load right after. For not getting sick while I was away (although I know at one point you were very close to it), and only collapsing now that everything is over. (ah choo!) Thank you legs for dragging me around for 10-14 hours a day checking all the sights; and arms for dragging the luggage through 6 cities, 5 flights, 3 train trips, and countless walks on cobble-stones. Thanks ears for hearing, eyes for seeing, tongue for tasting, and brain for making it all happen and not getting lost (too often). You guys make such a wondrous team that I am extremely lucky to possess. I promise to look after you better, feed you healthy(er) food, gain back the 3 kilos of you that I lost, and let you dance & exercise a whole lot more. After all, we’ve got that ski trip in just under 3 months, haven’t we? 😉

I love you so much, you tough little nut!




Dear Mr. Man’s eye-squint,

Thank you for appearing when my boy does his big guffawing laugh. You’re just the cutest sight to see, and never fail to tug at my heart string. I’d like to think I’m the only one who notices you, but frankly, I don’t really care if other people do. You’re still mine, all mine! Hope I get to see you all the time.




Dear Loss,

Thank you for letting us get a glimpse of what you could be like the other day. That really jolted us into realising what an amazing thing we have. Thank you for not arriving and we hope to never, ever see you. Because just the thought of you is enough to straighten us up.

With much awe,
