I don’t know about you but Christmas seems ages ago now!
I’ve been back at work since the 27th and it’s all been busy, with early deadlines, and I started my new job as news editor this week too… it’s a bit different, as three new reporters started at the same time so I’ve got a real team to manage now; which I suppose makes me their boss. Now there’s a thought
Christmas was lovely though; at my mum and dad’s as usual, for my Mum’s world-beating dinner and a really nice day all round.
Cue my traditional horses-on-Christmas-Day picture:
THWNN and his mate George are a right pair; when they’re not play-fighting or galloping round in the mud, they’re eating the old muckheap… clearly straw that’s been weed on and left to rot for a few years is a delicacy
I got some lovely presents, including horsey stuff, a gluten-free baking book, some amazingly cosy sheepskin-lined slippers and things like this:
Anything with the word “thermal” in the title is a winner in my book, although it’s been so mild – and it was confirmed last week that 2012 was the wettest year on record.
It finished in suitable style, with lashing rain and howling gales, and I spent New Year’s Eve at a party in the village hall, which was lovely.
As far as 2013 goes… who knows! I’m looking forward to it. And one of the first things I’ll be doing on here is an exciting competition – details up at the weekend hopefully!
What were your highlights of 2012/what are your plans for 2013?
