29 tomorrow

Around this time last year I was bemoaning the fact that I had just turned 28 and was quite depressed, and tomorrow I will be 29, which means I am one year older (fact) but you?ll be suprised to hear that I the outlook isn?t as gloomy as last year.

A lot can really happen in a year and I seem to be a lot happier. I suppose part of this is down to me finally getting my own home which is maybe a bit materialistic, but for my generation it has come to represent one of the facets for a complete life, and one that I?m happy to have achieved although there?s still a lot of work to be done on the place before it?s exactly how I would want it. The resulting factor of this is that I now have a lot less disposable income than I used to. I earn enough to pay the bills and still have some fun, but I haven?t been able to start saving money again and I think it will take a while for me to finally regulate my finances and work to a precise budget. This is my plan for after the new year.

Next up is that recently I?ve started seeing someone and that seems to be going well. It?s only been for a couple of weeks but on Saturday she?ll be meeting some of my friends as we all go out to celebrate my Birthday. Enough on that subject for now as I don?t want to jinx it.

I would like to say that life seems to be falling into place but I?m all too aware that anything can happen and circumstances can change, but for the moment I am happy and my life seems to be getting back on track. My family and friends all seem to be doing well too which is an extra added bonus.

Next year is the big 3-0 and we will have to see if I get all gloomy again as I hit that milestone.
