Its Christmas- well nearly!

This time next week it will be about one and a half hours away from Christmas Day, another year has just flown by!!

I do not intend writing a 'review of the year' as I have always believed that the past has to be respected and the future looked forward to.

So what will 2012 bring? I hope lots of good things for you all but for me I hope my health improves and that a lot of personal things improve. I suppose the highlight of the year must be the London Olympics although that means a lot of work at work (does that make sense?). We are not allowed any leave during the Olympic period. On the subject of the Olympics I have a ticket for the cycling event for the last time the Olympics were held in London in 1948, this belonged to my father who was an ardent cyclist himself.

Otherwise I hope 2012 brings you good health and fortune.

As a professional railwayman my thoughts and prayers go out to the ticket inspector on the Southend line who was stabbed in the back by someone avoiding apaying a fare. Words fail me about the attitude of people who do this kind of thing. About 20 years ago I was on the wrong end of a 14 inch carving knife, fortunately his aim was not good! Even so the thought is always in my mind.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Certainly hope that 2012 is a good one for us all so many things already to look forward to including as you say the Olympics, and the Queens Jubilee, etc etc.
All we really need is good health and peace for ourselves and all others.
