My, it's that time of year again.
As I wait for the iron to warm up, I thought I’d take the opportunity to wish all my readers a Happy New Year! I hope you both have a much better year than this one/the least one (depends when you read this) and you don’t have to settle for what you deserve.
I had intended to get another, proper post in before the turn of the year, but that ironing isn’t going to do itself (nor will anyone else do it for that matter!).

AND for 2014 I’m not going to mention the World Cup or the Scottish Referendum either because there’ll be lots and lots of people posting about those. Oh yeah, I forgot the Winter Olympics, but nobody watches those anyway.
