So the turkey is (at least partly) eaten, the mince pies are disappearing fast, the wrapping paper has been picked up off the floor and the presents played with. 2009 is done.
It's hard to say what I'll remember 2009 most for, because it's been such a packed year for me. Perhaps I'll remeber it as the last of my three happy years at Magdalen, the year I finished my degree, the year I set up a hosting co-operative with six friends, the year I moved away from home, the year I got a job or the year I took over as joint church treasurer.
It wasn't a perfect year, of course - my personal TODO list is still 39 lines long - but never mind, I'm fairly sure there's another year just around the corner. One item a week. What could possibly go wrong?
Happy New Year to all 3.5 of my readers (and all those following along via Facebook; do come and read the website this is all automatically imported from), and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in 2010.
