Back to work at Wardle McLean Towers after a full two-week break.
Nice to see that Prospect has listed ten things to be cheerful about and to look forward to. It's a good time of year to have future plans and positive things up ahead.
Once again, we dispensed with Christmas cards and sent out an e-card instead. And once again it crashed our e-mail server.
For Christmas 2012 we donated money to St Mungo's. In 2011 over 5,600 people slept rough in London, an increase of 43%.
St Mungo's opens doors for homeless people and helps them to rebuild their lives.
One of their projects is Street Stories, St Mungo's Oral History Project. Worth a listen.
It helps to put things in perspective and to remind us of what there is to be thankful for, in the year ahead.
