Yes, we had the Jubilee and the London Olympics but 2012 for me was memorable for family reasons – first Gail Knutt’s wedding at Easter Road in August, followed by Kevin and Nicola’s engagement. Workwise, it was quite a positive year too.
Disappointments in 2012? The Cup Final, obviously. And Jimmy Savile.
What will 2013 bring? Who knows, more Savile revelations probably and more economic misery – particularly for those on benefits as the welfare reforms kick in.
New Year resolutions? Only one – I’ve got to lose some weight. Just before Christmas I was weighing in at 16st and my target is to lose three stones in 2013 – around 1lb per week and less than 4lb per month, which sounds simple enough.
The diet starts when I have finished the assorted pies, pastries, biscuits, cakes, chocolate and crisps that I seem to have accumulated over the festive period – all the things I love.
This may not be as straightforward as I had envisaged … I’ll keep you posted!
