Back to the Real World

After an exciting December that included not only the usual Festivities, but a trip to New York with work, yesterday saw life getting back to a more normal position. The alarm is now set for 6am again and breakfast and lunch are meals to be eaten at one's desk.

But it is a New Year so there are bound to be new challenges, so I am sure much of it will be good.

Here's to a great 2012.

Happy New Year

So 2011 is well and truly over and 2012 has started.

Last year was certainly one to remember, both personally and globally. It was the year I left an employer I had worked with for 20 years and joined a new employer, which so far seems to have been a really good move, long may that continue. In a global note, it was the year of unrest in the Middle East, earthquakes in New Zealand, flooding in Japan an Thailand, not forgetting Pakistan. New countries in Africa. The Eurozone on the edge of collapse. A new leader in North Korea. What a year.

2012 could be a pivotal year. There are elections due in a number of major countries. I think it could be the year of make or break for the Euro. Scotland may vote to split from The Union. Who knows what natural disasters the year could throw at us. And London has the Olympics.

Here's to 2012 and fingers crossed it treats us well.
