I know it's a tad late, but Happy New Year! I hope you all celebrated and saw in 2016 safe and well.
The Christmas period has been a whirlwind, and I'd like to apologise for my lack of communication over the past couple of weeks. But I'm back now and raring to go.
Christmas saw me massively spoiled, as usual, and I had a lovely time with family and friends, reminiscing about old memories, and enjoying making new ones. I have a gorgeous new camera (a very special gift from an equally special person), so I'm looking forward to sharing my new snaps with you! That's once I've mastered the art of moving said pics to my laptop... I'll get there! Other than wonderful gifts, I am full to the brim with food, drink and merriment (my jeans are definitely testament to the food and drink part!), my kitchen is still in recovery mode, having been packed to the rafters with homemade wine, biscuits, chocolate and all things indulgent. My house has just about returned to normality as a whole, the decorations safely packed away in the loft until they're required again (save one lonely mini-stocking that managed to avoid detection, the wily minx).
So, on to the present and the up-and-coming! I'm currently writing a piece for a very good friend of mine about my local music scene. I'm incredibly flattered that he has asked me to contribute to his blog, I'm excited about the collaboration and the opportunity to write about something slightly away from what I have offered on A Little Bit of Everything. I'll keep you all posted on when it is coming out and where to find it.
I'm also looking to start a series about independent businesses, local entrepreneurs and successful smaller businesses. I'll be starting with a post about 2 fantastic girls who have recently opened a barber's in Bedford and are doing an amazing job. That will be coming soon. I'm open to suggestion about where/who to write about, so please feel free to leave me your ideas!
Other than all that, I am now in training for (potentially) completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, so expect lots of pro-health posts (I apologise now!), and possibly a few whingy ones about how much I miss booze and carbs (again, I apologise!). With a busy few weeks ahead of me, I'm sure there will be fun stuff to share with you on the way!
