Just a quick note to wish all my readers (I am sure I have some out there somewhere!!) a Happy New Year and here's hoping that 2010 brings with it peace, love and happiness for us all.
For a lot of reasons I am very glad to see the end of 2009 - it was a year of ups and downs with the downs being unbearable for my extended family and the ups struggling to hold their heads high in amongst it all - but nonetheless I celebrate them here.
My little (or not so) family made it through another year of job searches (successful), academic achievements, sporting highs (and lows - just to even it out) and the general pursuit of happiness. For us, I hope that 2010 will bring with it new opportunities - new friendships to make, jobs to find, courses to do, games to win and lose, time spent with family, time spent with friends, travel, laughter, tears, sunshine and rain - just life really.
I wish the same to you and yours.
