Sitting on his leather sofa in front of the fire and surrounded by the contented snores of sundry animals, I pause to consider what this year has meant to me, to us, and who has been a co-conspirator and fellow traveller along the way. Two main themes leap out at me as lie in His arms in the limbo land between Christmas and New Year. Those of endings and beginnings, the Alpha and Omega of life if you will. Many of you will know, indeed will have so kindly offered support through the last year of my dad’s decline and his death in late September. There is no getting away…
I was up North last week for work and staying in a hotel with a panoramic view of the city as it woke to another day from the window. At the turning point of this year I would like to thank you all for your support. It has been a tough one personally but by no means all bad. Your support here and on Twitter has helped me get through the hard times more than I can say. Thank you ?
