As September approaches... I realise that I have been on HP for almost 10 years. I have had some absences.. some short.. some long... but I do always return here... because of so many people I have met and for those I've yet to meet.
I have been lucky to meet so many HP people in real life too.. over 30 really. I've travelled as far as Singapore to meet some... and haven't yet met some who live close by.
I am grateful to each person who has made time for me here.. be it only online or in the real world. You make my life a better place... you bring a light to my sometimes darkness and I truly am hopeful that I have brought the same to others.
To my Owner... and those who have owned me... I thank you for making me feel like I belong somewhere... sometimes I can feel so alone.
To my pets... you are all amazing for trusting me with your care. You know I've always allowed you as much freedom to be wherever you truly want to be... I am honoured that you stay.. especially when I disappear for longer spells of time. You are truly special x
Lastly, to Stuart... I never believed that I would ever meet my best friend in such a way. I never thought I'd ever share as many things with anyone as I have with you. You have listened when I was chatty.. you have been there when I am quiet. You have endured me getting snot and tears all over your shirts when I needed to truly cry... and you have made me smile when I never though I would ever stop hurting. We've also had some damned good times.. chasing pigeons... eating so much Nepalese food I though I would die... we've been chased by zombies and we have gatecrashed a party just to dance. HP will always be magic to me... because it is where I first found you x
Ok.. enough sentimental crap... here's to another 10 years of HP ... I truly hope. x
