Pinch, punch

I forgot to open my advent calendar this morning, I don’t think my brain is willing to accept that it’s already the 1st of December.

The year really has flown by in a haze of highs and lows, and all things considered I think the trend has been an upward one. Certainly finishing the year feeling good about me, good about Kirsty, good about Kirsty and I, and good about the future.

I’ve not blogged all that much this year, largely because the events took over my life and also because I’ve been writing occasionally in a private diary. It helps me process my thoughts and marks the true progress of the year.

And that’s the thing, it’s all just part of this journey.

One thing I’ve managed to achieve is to avoid negativity as much as I can. I’ve a few wee systems in place (at work, and elsewhere) and hopefully, for the most part, I’m a lot calmer and level headed. Mind you, I’m sure a lot of that thinking can also be attributed to some of the more crap events of the year.

Regardless, Christmas is rolling towards us, I’ve got ALL my presents bought and this year will have a Christmas tree as well. I’m looking forward to a few days off, some fun nights out, and the start of a new year.

Hey there, wondered unto your blog reminiscing about the bloggers meetups of old and as luck would have it just so happened that my face was the page flickr photo of the moment ๐Ÿ˜‰ what were the odds ? Just wanted to say hi, trust you’re well and if you’re ever round this side of Scotland it would be fun to meet up for a pint ๐Ÿ™‚ only ever see Alan of the group and that’s normally because we run into each other guiding or when I see him doing stand up …

All good with me, and yeah, I don’t see anyone else really. Have Richard Leyton on Twitter, and Alan and Neil on Facebook (and your goodself of course).

Hope life treating you well!
