It's all coming together

Yes, it really is. All the outstanding jobs in the flat have been done
. All the decorating done. AND ... wait for it ... I have a new, working shower!!
I've sold my car. And I'm actually enjoying all the extra walking I'm having to do - just hoping that will get my under the magical 14 stone barrier before I leave for the Middle East.
I have a lodger! Wow, I have to admit, my faith was getting low on that one. I almost settled for someone who was only going to move in for 6 weeks. And then, last Wednesday, someone came to have a look, liked it, and said: I really would like to stay for 2 years, is that a problem?! She's off on a mission trip to India for 2 weeks and coming back the day I leave, but I'm sure I can organise her moving in with the help of some friends.
And last but not least: I visited a doc yesterday that I hadn't seen for a while, to get my 3 months' supply of meds, and he was really pleased. My platelet count is up into the normal range, he hardly recognised me after not seeing me for 2 years because I've lost 2 stone, and he complimented me on being off the anti-depressants for 2 years now.
So yes, I better start thinking about packing then!
Kurdistan, here I come!
