So, I have a ticket to go to Goa this friday. A much needed and well earned holiday. Visa should have come through today and due to circumstances really out of my hands I have no visa so cannot go. Have lost the money on the ticket and will not be staying at the beautiful beach hut on paradise beach. I wish I could explain what's been going on in life for the last few months but it involves too many folk so lets just stick with this was my much needed holiday.

I'm going to take the next two weeks of my cleared diary to sort, clear, clear, shift, detox and empty and along the way I'm going to begin crazy fm. I'm off now to the Christmas Market for a glass of hot German Christmas wine and to see some ole friends. Love love.
