Posted:Well, 3 days and counting, and I can't see I'm going to have much time to check back in here so thought I'd get my farewells in early smile

I'm sad to be leaving so many lovely people behind for a year, but then I'm also happy and looking forward to meeting so many more of you (hopefully) biggrin

In all honesty, I couldn't think of a better year to leave after.

Huge thanks must go to Dunc and the rest of the Play team for their amazing weekend, and to all those who came and made it soooo good - looking forward to Play 3 biggrin

Huge thanks also to Mags and the Falmouth team for exactly the same reason - hopefully see you at Falmouth 7-ish smile

Those weekends were personal highlights for me for this year and everytime I look back on them I smile. In my 5 years of spinning (and nearly 5 years of HoP!) this year has just had some awesome times. I've learnt a hell of a lot, met a hell of a lot of wonderful people and generally had a blinding time smile

I've set up a bloggy thing at:
www.hugbubble.co.uk/blog/
Which I'll keep as up-to-date as possible, and feel free to either leave comments there or e-mail be at DurbsUK @ HotMail dot com

Extra special hugs to; Strugz, 2Bags (good luck with the course and the Fire-Comp next year - no competition this year eh? wink ), Clare hug, E_war spank, Dunc, George and Mini-Dunc, Mags, Cantus, Kyri, Rossco, Ros, Frodo, UCOF, Simian erm... all the London lot... oh, I'm going to have to stop and leave people out - bugger. I love you all smile

Hopefully I'll come back wiser, more tanned and with a spinning Mrs Durbs to bring to all the meetings in 2007 (I'll settle for 2 out of 3)

As they say - the best part of going away is coming back.
This probably isn't true - but it's a nice sentiment wink

Love you all, see some of you in a year, some of you sooner
And remember:

Always do a search - you might just find an answer wink

This probably isn't true - but it's a nice sentiment wink



Actually, the coming back bit is really cool. You get to see lovely people and places again. The trick is to keep moving so that you're constantly coming back to meet friendly faces all over the world. smile

Have an amazing time all over the place and let me know when you're in Thailand and maybe we'll meet up.

Also when you're in Bali go across to the Gili islands, just off Lombok. Well worth it for blissful peaceful beach! Tell you more later smile

Safe travels and don't leave your acrylics in the really hot sun!!!
