Physically and emotionally this week I would describe as: Blue.
Those who know me personally will know how I attach myself to friends and people I spend my days with. Living in such a tightly knit community of just under 70 personnel, you're constantly in contact with everyone and I find you wind the people you "click" with very tightly around your heart. My heart is COVERED in strings and cords of all types and to be honest, I prefer it that way.
This week I had to say goodbye to some of my favourites. It always makes me sad so see such lovely and fun people leave the station but that's always the nature of the military isn't it? The beauty of it all though, is "goodbyes" really aren't "goodbyes" but merely a "see you soon". That's what I tell myself anyway so I don't get too upset...!
Other than my mushy intro, this week was quite busy. I worked quite a few long hours to bring in the CC177 that landed in Alert this week. It was a bit hectic as the flight plans kept changing, but over all I would say the week was a success. I started knitting a scarf, learned some new songs on guitar, got an extra day to spend with the departing friends and tonight is a PJ party with the station! Should be a very fun evening filled with laughs and making memories.
I hope you all had a wonderful week and enjoy the weekend. Remember to take the time to hug somebody you care about today and let them know what they mean to you. Those are the best kind of hugs and trust me, a hug goes a long way!
Happy weekend xo
