It’s always a little strange typing the first post after a break. The keyboard feels alien, and I’m sitting wondering what to type.
I can barely remember what I last posted, it’s been such a while ago. Before we left for Lapland I scheduled 2 posts, so the last time I actually wrote something was about the 14th December. Over 2 weeks ago. My longest time away ever from the blog.

Firstly I want to thank everyone for their kind wishes, here and over at Facebook, wishing me a speedy recovery. Thank you.
As today is the last day of 2012, I really should be doing a round-up of 2012. But I’m not back up to full capacity, and to be completely honest am happy to just now move on into 2013.
Not one for new year resolutions, I won’t be posting about anything like that. I’m a firm believer that it’s ‘what you do every day that counts, not once in a while’. I’m also getting more cynical as I get older, and wonder how much the consumer market relies upon new year resolutions to sell quick fixes each January. No product fixes anything, only a persons determination, hard-work and will power can make a difference.
It’s going to be a quiet New Year at Chez Wright. A little different to the festivities of last year. Sometimes you just got to go with the cards you’re dealt.
I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, and see you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in 2013!
((p.s – I did manage to drag myself out of my sick-bed to go see Mr Gary Barlow last night (I had a much coveted ticket). It was hard-work but worth it. If anyone fancies learning why my ears are ringing this morning, check out the clip over at Facebook. Not my clip – I hadn’t the energy to do much else than stand there – but you’ll get the gist very quickly as to the noise level from the crowd)).
