Journal of Alan Howard

There's been a lot of things
happening between Michelle and I that have been particularly
hard to deal with, but we're doing the best that we can in
trying to get over what has been, and move on into
friendship. It's been very difficult for her, and as a
result, it's been difficult for me too. None of you are
ever likely to know what it's been like, or what's been
happening, because I'm not going to say anything out of respect
for Michelle. However, I needed to say just that, because
there's a lot of things I choose not to talk about in
here. I know this journal is all about the events in my
life and my feelings about them, but things are still too
sensitive to go into some areas. I'm sure that one day
things will return to normal in here, but right now, things
aren't normal. But hey, that's been the story of my
A few day ago I started organising the trip to Brisbane. I
was annoyed that my preliminary negotiations with a travel agent
had them offering me an airfare priced above their
advertised price. I replied to the email with that
information, questioning the logic in them stating they were
giving me a good deal when in fact it was higher than their
advertised price! They haven't replied to me yet...
I may have to phone them on Monday and have a serious chat to
them about it. If they can't do better, then I'll just
find a different travel agent.
The date for travel to Brisbane will be 22nd - 26th March.
I'm quite looking forward to it, as I'll get to catch up with
Dan again, plus another friend (hi Sandy!). And if anyone
else wants to meet up with me in Brisbane, please just contact
me and let me know.
