It's been a while since I last blogged...
Well.. "a while" is really an understatement! :P
Truth is I've been pre-occupied with more important things... like my dissertation, my family and my job. One's done, but the other two are still "on-going"!
2014 was a challenging year... writing and working at the same time, made worse by being posted some hundred miles away from home... the hazards of being a government servant :P
Those long daily commute from dawn to dusk... family literally broken apart (but thank God, was not drifting apart)... macam2 dugaan...
Despite all that, took everything in stride, believing that there's "hikmah" in everything that has happened. Prayed to the Almighty to give me the strength to carry on and to face the challenges, and told myself to be thankful with what I have.
True enough, berkat kesabaran, eventually was transferred to a place much nearer to home, with a respectable position. Alhamdulillah...
I'm going places and the children are too - excellent results in their exams. Alhamdulillah...
I hope that 2015 will be a better year, and I hope to be a better person (in whatever "hats" I'm wearing).
I'm taking up things from where I've left off
like gardening, playing the piano, compiling a book about my travels,
and most importantly unpacking my Bristol things still in boxes after 2
It's good to be back :)
