I'm back and raring to go!

Good morning faithful followers of this blog. Please forgive me for I have sinned, it has been four weeks since my last post and I have very little excuses.
My trip to England was fantastic, my family are all well, my house looks great and will be rented out by tomorrow, and yes there is also someone very special that I spent a lot of time with.
Things had been tough here in our little island for a while before my trip and I needed to get away. Living on a small island when there is friction can be very hard, especially when it involves all the people around you and they are forced to get involved.
Getting away and spending some real quality time with the people closest to me made me realise what is really important. There are so many sayings out there along the lines of forget the small stuff but when it is around you 24/7 that is really hard to do. I need go no further or in any more detail as I have come back to San Pedro with the mindset that nothing negative will have an impact on my life. Living here to some people is the dream that they want to do and yes, Belize is beautiful with so much to offer. However, when you live somewhere you take it for granted and don't see the beauty around us that visitors are blown away by and are drawn back to.
Since coming back I have thrown myself into the fundraising for The Humane Society and have a huge Easter event planned and a FAB event. This stands for Foths Annual Ball which is to be held on Saturday June 26th which also happens to be my 40th birthday! Now I know a lot of you are saying good God she can't be 40 well I have to say I would agree with that however my passport says differently. I am blessed that friends from the USA and UK are coming to celebrate with me and everyone is welcome.
Lime is also very demanding right now as we are making a few changes there and turning half the tour side into retail space. Lots to follow on that as it progresses but lets just say for now all of this is keeping me out of trouble. We are starting the Lime challenge again next week in an attempt to lose a few pounds, raise some money and have a giggle along the way. These are my plans for the coming months to keep myself busy and ease the pain of being away from my friends, family and loved ones in the UK.
I promise there will be some photos to follow but today I have some friends staying over and am hiding in my room trying to be quiet-me I know that's a tough one.
I would like to say thank you for all the emails, texts, phone calls and face book messages checking that I am ok as I have been away from this longer than expected and people are concerned. I have started a new chapter in my life and think this blog may become more factual then personal from now on. However, my close friends have my email address so can ask all the personal stuff on that. Cheers for now I hope you are all healthy and happy. As someone once said to me, live the life you love and love the life you live, this is what I plan to do from here on inTTFN.

Just remember "Dont play the mind games of small minded people" consider that you've already won before it even starts.
