Happy (not so) New Year everyone. First of all I’d like to apologise to my regular readers for leaving it so long since the last post. The truth is I’ve been rather enjoying my holiday from blogging and I’m not sure whether I’m going to put much effort in this year. Last year I felt a bit like a newspaper columnist, charged with delivering so many column inches of article per week! It never seemed like a big deal, but now I’m reluctant to get drawn back in.
One truly great thing happened over Christmas. If you cast your mind back to last year, ( see http://sleeper.blog.co.uk/index.php/sleeper/2005/11/25/title~336645 ) you may recall my wish to take the children tobogganing. Well…even though we spent the Christmas break in Eastbourne, we awaoke on the morning of the 27th to a thin covering of snow. Grandma and I whisked the kids up to Beachy Head with an old wooden toboggan and everyone got a couple of trips down the hill – not towards the cliffs of course! Fantastic!
Of course, for those of you who live North of London, all this fuss about snow is probably puzzling. We’re just a bit deprived of it down here.
Good wishes to all of you and I hope 2006 is off to a rip-roaring start. I’m determined that 2006 is going to be the best yet! I have plans for the family, plans for D and me and plans for me too. Action is required and changes need to be made, but it should result in good news for everyone.
Hei-hei, as the Finnish say!
