Afro Chic's Year In Review..

Well 2009 was a hell of a year.

Some things I posted about, some things I planed to post about and never did and some things I completely forgot about.

Of course there was Carnival in January and February, and my first experience playing with IPee mas.

The biggest thing to happen to me this year was of course, the loss of my job at the end of May. That sucked ASS! Took my confidence down a notch or two (or ten).
I got something temporary that didn't work out cause my employers were erm...let's just say not doing everything above board *coughtaxescough*. I'm now doing some work with a small PR firm and though the hours are long (longer than I am accustomed to), I am enjoying it.

In June and July I pretty much farted round at home and got hooked on Desperate Housewives and Wife Swap.

August saw me bitching about Spice (the band I eventually registered to play with for Carnival 2010). I still think that their PR is balls though.

Early August the family and extended family spent a weekend down the islands.
And of course who could forget the mid-August family trip to Toco where the Balandra bridge collapsed, and from which I am forever scarred.


In September I got invited to The Event - East Meets West hosted by Brian Mac Farlane; and who could forget Mac Farlane's Band launch for "Resurrection-The Mas" (best band launch ever), which took place in Tobago.




Another big thing to happen this year was my younger bro getting married in Tobago in early December. I was a bridesmaid as well as the decorator. It was a small but lovely wedding *sniff*.



The first quarter of next year is Carnival preparations of course, but I am also going to be focusing on my son who has SEA exam in March.

Bring on 2010!

I think this was a great year for you, many challenges but it just proved how resilient you are and never be afraid to make changes.

Small intimate and classy weddings are always the best!

Happy New Year, may you have more exciting things in store for 2010.

Oh gosh, tell me please N. isn't old enough for SEA? Remember when he was afraid of my husband because he'd never seen anyone so white? Happy new year!

So many times this year I doubted myself, you would not beleive. Thanks so much Saucy. :)

And yes Joanne, SEA on the 18th of March. I remember him being wary of the hubby yes. LOL.
