Those were the days my friend...

I feel like I'm living in a snow globe right now, which has been shaken around vividly the past few weeks. I know that things will fall into place, eventually. Probably not the same place, but it will calm down and become something else, eventually.
Right now, it just feels like chaos.

Lots of people have left Brunei for good recently, and this is not really the normal time to be going - usually people try to go at the end of the school year.
I've lost my hair dresser, I've lost my favourite squash partner, I've lost my Zumba sister and tonight at the Hash we bid goodbye to two very seasoned hashers who are leaving this week too.
Even though it's not people I've had in my daily life, it's still friends that have all played their role in my life here in Brunei. A life that suddenly has changed a lot in a very short period of time.
Lot's of "lasts" at the moment, it's all very sad.

It was Mizusu's last 'Creative Crew' morning today, although she only made it for lunch since she was busy packing. Beenal had made a gorgeous cake especially for her:

It was also Matt & Mizusu's last day in their house today, all their things left on the moving truck this afternoon:

So now it's all empty and dark next door. :(
We are going to miss them so much.

Oh it is always hard to see so much change at once. Take care and acknowledge your losses, and leave the door wide open for the universe to fill with new wondrous people and good times and new beginnings.

"Dont be dismayed at goodbyes,
farewells are necessary before you can meet again,
and meeting again
after moments
or lifetimes
is certain for those who are friends"
Richard Bach

Så tråkigt! Det är tufft att som oss skaffa nya vänner, rätt ofta.. Men om du har tur nu, så kanske några nya kommer till Zumban och i grannhuset!
