To celebrate the New Year, I thought I'd select a post from each month of 2013 for you to browse through while you drink port and contemplate your fifteenth turkey sandwich of the season.
And this might be a good time to ask regular followers to say, in a comment, which kinds of posts you like the best. I've been writing this blog for six years now and, very rudely, have never asked .....
In January, I was given a 'snow day' off school.
In February, I made a bread and butter pudding.
In March, I had moved on from thinking about puddings to pies
In April, Cinderella met the Three Little Pigs
In May, I met the most disgruntled waiter in the world.
In June, I wrote about how to write satirical articles
In July, I kicked my shoe into the middle of the road.
In August, I was in Malvern on holiday and took some beautiful photos of the surroundings
In September, I stunned the world by writing about sport
In October, I was trying to distract myself from fear before a gig
In November, I rewrote some song titles and made them less enthusiastic
In December, I realised I needed new glasses (and still haven't booked the appointment...)
Happy New Year to all my followers, and a big thank you for staying with it, even when the going gets tough.
