I am preparing for a difficult and emotional day, it's going to big and tricky, but I have some plans to celebrate the greatness that I am leaving behind and enjoying every last moment with them all. I have been trying very hard to practise mindfulness at work over the last few weeks, so rather than thinking about anything ahead, I have been just languishing in the each and every given moment. It has given me some really interesting perspective and a lot more joy to just be in every moment and I plan to share those joyous findings with my lovely colleagues and friends tomorrow as I depart. There are some pretty terrific people at my work and I feel like it is my job to let them all know just how terrific that I think that they are before I miss my chance to.
So here I am, only days aways from Christmas preparing for a massive change to happen in my life and feeling all of the mixed emotions that comes with that. And then there is the excitement of Christmas, the summer holidays and the restful days ahead to share with my loved ones. I am a flurry of emotions, a fountain of feels and a flood with fidgets, but most oddly of all is that I am all of those things in the very best of ways.

Director Mike Nichols, best known for his work on The Graduate, again delves into a world of forbidden encounters with Closer. Written by Patrick Marber, and based on his award winning play of the same name, Closer has been compared to Mozart's opera Cosi fan tutte, with a more contemporary and tragic twist.
In London, four strangers find their lives entangled in a mess of love, flirtation, passion and devious betrayal. Through a series of lacerating dialogues and sobering interludes, we watch as the four very unlikable adults tear down the fabric of their lives and lay themselves bare.
Julia Roberts, Clive Owen, Jude Law and Natalie Portman all give strong and convincing merit to their flawed characters and the overall effect is bleak and damning. An all guns firing, adult, high-brow drama with a ruthless script; riveting!
FINAL SAY: Hello stranger.
