I started this bloggy thing about a year and a half ago, I'm not in the least professional about regular updates or 'sticky' features to ensure constant returns, but it's somewhere I can have a moan, a think, a rant and a ponder. Thanks so much for ever bothing to click a link to here, I'll continue to post stuff a bit haphazardly every now and then.
2011 has been a wibbly wobby but creative year for me, starting out a bit bleak but getting warm and productive as the months passed. My lovely son has grown up and left home, but he's coming back for Christmas. My gorgeous daughter is also just a bit damned clever, runs rings around her befuddled dad but she is very lovely too, and finally my lovely wife has just remained steadfast, insightful, complex, challenging but above everything else deeply lovely.
I'm really enjoying making a new series of Red Dwarf, I'm embarrassingly excited about my book, News From Gardenia being published in February, I'm very excited about doing a new series of 'Fully Charged' which will be a proper, sponsored online series with some proper clever young people helping me explore electric cars and the future of energy, and likewise, a new series of Carpool which has some truly awesome passengers lined up. Oh, and then there's all that running, jumping , swimming, pole vaulting, beach volleyball business in the summer.
In the meantime, I hope you have a great Christmas, midwinter break/ holiday, snooze, what-ever-floats-your-boat type experience and fingers crossed that 2012 will be a great year for you.
