“Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne”

“Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne”

If you’re reading this blog then you’ve survived not only Christmas but also the New Years Eve celebrations!

Sore heads? I know I did. January is for most of us a time to lay low and recuperate over partied bodies.

There is a whole gamut of emotions at the turning of yet another year.  For some it’s a case of thank heavens that year has passed. And for others it’s a case of a feeling of sadness at a year passed yet eager to bring on the New Year.

Of course for many 2012 has been a year of austerity and cut backs. Not only in the UK but of course we all are aware of the tough year endured by countries such as Spain and Greece. Yet here in the UK 2012 was a year that seemed to unite the country despite the financial difficulties.  We’ve enjoyed the Queen’s Jubilee, the Royal Wedding and a triumphant Olympic games.  These three in particular brought the whole country together, a collective feeling we were fortunate to enjoy in 2012 I’ve never experienced before, and will I ever again?

There were grumblings as to the cost of the aforementioned three yet surely looking back the wonderful memories inspired will outlast any grumbles. The Olympics was for me the pick of the three.  Who could possibly forget both the opening and closing ceremonies of London 2012? Who could forget the despair at not
winning the opening cycling event, a dead cert for Mark Cavendish, the media went into hyperbole yet all was forgotten on that golden Saturday in the Olympic stadium when the track team won three gold medals. The stuff of dreams!   

A whole slew of highlights from a truly magical Olympics and of course an equally truly inspiring Paralympics. In both we witnessed athletes pushing themselves to achieve the seemingly impossible.

Can we possibly top 2012? I don’t have the answer for that yet that is the fun for me, the fun is in the trying and in the uncertainty as we strive and take each year by the scruff of its neck and going for it. 

Jeez I’ve gone into a Queen’s speech mode!

I wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2013
