And we're back again! PE trip was very cool. Got to spend some time with my sis and Pierre and did a LOT of catching up with old friends! The only thing I didn't get to do was visit Dr Gebers (my old CF doc) as he wasn't working on Friday afternoon when I wanted to go and suprise him!

The reunion festivities started with Deary Day assembly (Deary Day is the school's birthday) at noon on Friday. What a surreal experience! The hall seems a bit smaller, and it's strange to be there and not know ANY of the kids in the school. The teachers who are still there look the same though and it was great to see them again. On Friday evening it was the informal social event at The Island pub/restaurant. It was a bit much to take in trying to mingle with all those people that (in most cases) you haven't seen for 10 years to be honest! And the outside area that was reserved for us was freezing cold so everyone tried to huddle up inside rather which was a bit cramped. We didn't stay too late but at least the evening meant that the formal event on Saturday night would be less intimidating.

On Sat during the day Chrislie and I went with Antoinette to her horse-riding and to the shops. Also had coffee with Ditha, a good friend of mine who I also haven't seen since our wedding and even then we didn't chat much. Sat evening turned out to be pretty great. It was a sit-down dinner which made it easier to catch-up and talk. The speeches were also quite interesting and the food very nice. I didn't take enought photo's though because it's a bit strange and rude to interrupt everyone's conversations for pics! All in all a very successfull weekend and again, like everything in my life, it's thanks to my donor that I am alive and well to have been able to attend this event!

Yesterday I went to gym after work and a little while after getting back my throat started getting sore... It was worse when I woke up this morning plus snot-nose and headache has been added to the mix. So basically a classic cold! Can't say where I got it from, was in touch with so many people this weekend AND the whole office is sick AND I flew on a plane... so could have picked it up anywhere. Won't stay home from work though unless I get a fever too.
