Happy New Year

After having a lovely Christmas holiday full of good food and wine, I just thought I would wish you all a Happy New Year. It’s not long to go until we wave goodbye to 2012 with the usual mixture of relief and regret.

For me, although 2012 has been a difficult year, I have learnt a lot about myself from the challenges it presented. I am hoping that next year will be better. I don’t usually make New Year resolutions, but this time I have.

My resolution is to focus on what’s important in my life:

family and friends
photography
writing

And not to worry about the rest. Let’s see if I can keep to that.

Anyway Happy New Year everyone.
