Where do I begin? Well, 2008 you were a year of challenges and change. Not at all bad I have to say, because you were also a hell of a lot of fun much of the time. Best of all I resolved my sleep issues during the year and that saw a huge improvement in my general feeling of happiness and wellbeing.

It was a pretty good year for creative pursuits, making new friends and getting more involved in the knitting community (for example), doing some designing, and getting back into taking more photos. Work was somewhat up and down, but by year end I feel like I have that situation resolved. I've also ended the year with the joys of being able to spend some time with someone I like, and who likes me back, including in the Special Hugs For Grown Ups kind of way. I may not be getting hot sweaty man-love for New Year's Eve, but the memory is still fresh.

The nightly doomsayers are forecasting a problematic year ahead. But then, there was a storm forecast for yesterday and that didn't happen either. So 2009, my challenge for you is more ups, less downs. C'mon, that shouldn't be too hard to organise.

It's the same thing I wish for everyone who reads this, may your ups be well and truly up and any downs, well if they have to happen just little bijou ones that only make the ups seem even upper. Thanks for being here, for reading and for leaving a comment every now and then. (Lurkers, don't be shy in 2009! I'm dubbing it The Year Of The Comment.)

Happy New Year!
