This is my last post here. All good things come to an end and I think the time has come to put World of Widget to bed once and for all.
I’m saying goodbye on a high. I’m now settled into life in the Shire. I’ve finally moved out from Snobsville, I’m now a fully qualified bus driver doing a job that I absolutely adore and I’ve met the love of my life – my soulmate who I intend to spend the rest of my days with. Widget is so happy living in the countryside and neither of us miss our old life at all. We miss friends of course, but other than that, have no wistful backward glances or thoughts of our old life.
I’ve no regrets of anything I’ve said or done. To the haters that used my words against me, I have only one thing to say – you unwitting did me a massive life changing favour. What happened through your actions forced me to make a decision, albeit under the most agonising of circumstances, which has changed my life for the better.
Despite some tough times, I’m now the happiest I’ve been in many years. Meeting my soulmate has made me complete. Becoming a bus driver was one of the biggest challenges of my life in terms of learning and processing new skills in a very short period of time and within a very steep learning curve. But it’s all been worth it. Watching the sun rise over the most beautiful scenery when I’m on the first service of the day never fails to lift my spirits. I’ve met some amazing people and now have two new people in my life who probably don’t realise how much they’ve changed it for the better. Life is sweet.
Realistically I don’t have a lot of time to blog these days and amazingly I think I’ve finally run out of things to say! So rather than leave things hanging or occasionally blog to crow about how much I’m in love, I’m going to bow out gracefully now.
The blog has had nearly 9000 visitors from all over the world and over 20000 views. It remains a source of baffled pride that so many have given up their time to read my words. I’ve shared the highs and lows of life here in unflinching honesty and the fact that you come back for more and have shown your support and care means more than words can ever express.
To everyone who’s read and supported this blog over the past five and a half years, heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you. Widget and I have loved sharing our lives with you and wish you much peace, health, happiness and good fortune. X
