Time for the end-of-the-year-review I suppose!
This has been a very nice year to me all told. Lots of positive things happened and very few negatives. I could list them all here but I’ll keep it simple by just saying that the plusses outweighed the minuses by far. I hope all of you had a fine festive season with plenty of fun, frivolity and terrible hangovers. We spent ours with my family in Aberdeen this year but are now back in Leeds for Hogmanay (we do it turn about each year) and we certainly had a grand old time eating, drinking and exchanging gifts. I could also list the Christmas gifts I received, but I’ll spare you that too, since I’m not materialistic and am over the age of 10. Suffice it to say that people I know are far too generous. I am very grateful to have such good family and friends and sometimes it takes a reflective look at the year to make me realise this.
Speaking of which, I’d also like to extend a big thank you to all the people on here (and off) who have supported my wife and I in our business venture. We’re still not exactly in the major leagues yet, but this year is a definite long step up from last which was pretty good in itself. So to all of you who supported us via commissions, be they DA-related or otherwise, we thank you.
As for now, we've gone full Scottish stereotyope mode - for once – since it is the 31st of December. There’s Cullen skink to be supped, haggis, neeps and tatties to guzzle and beetroot and oatcakes to munch. So, let’s raise a glass of cheer and see in 2016 – starting it as we mean to carry on – by drawing things at an incredible rate of noughts!
Pip-pip old fruits! Have a SMASHING 2016!
