New motorhome

Wow, the holidays have flown in and it's a new year already.

If it's anything like 2010, 2011 should be amazing. Last year, I left a full-time job at Learning and Teaching Scotland to join Folksy and Newspaper Club, bought a motorhome, went to lots of lovely new places like Orkney and West Wales and saw my youngest son start school. It was a big year.

I was rubbish at blogging though. Despite having more time it still felt pretty busy. It's taken the best part of 9 months to get into a rhythm of working at home and the new year comes just as it all falls into place. It feels good to be marking the transition from one year to the next and starting afresh.

After leaving Folksy in November I'm looking forward to concentrating on Newspaper Club and finishing off the Nothing To See Here book which is due out in May. I'd also like to see a kingfisher and a woodpecker this year (not necessarily at the same time) and maybe go to New York.

The photo above shows the ceramic motorhome by Paige Russell (via Hannah Zakari) which my lovely Newspaper Club colleagues got me for Christmas. It sits on my shelf as a reminder of all the adventures yet to come.

Happy New Year.

here's to it and to everyone.

on the off chance you're still searching for an anthem for the year there's one having a go over at mine
