What's Another Year?

A helluva lot, actually!

On this day a year ago, Viki got on a plane from Hungary, leaving behind her family, friends, and job, and took a flight into the unknown to move in with me (after being friends for a couple of years by email and msn, and a week holiday in August last year) and look for a job here... which she got after a few months.

And I just want to take this opportunity to say "Thank you" to her for what has been the best year of my life... Viki has been my strength and my shoulder to cry on through what has been a very hard year (with the bankruptcy, and my uncertainty over my job, and my leg woes), and on many days has been the only thing worth going home for. She has cheered me up when I needed it... given me a swift kick up the arse when I've been feeling sorry for myself... and given me a reason to go on when I've wondered what was the point...

She took an incredible risk and made a lot of sacrifices to come here, and I just hope she knows how much I love her, and how I will always be indebted to her for everything she has done for me.

I'm a different person this last year, and credit for that must go entirely to Viki.

Koszonom, draga... Szeretlek...
