I guess this is a bit of a non-post…
This time last year I was in Afghanistan and our company in the Grenadier Guards had just done a successful clearance operation, expanding our reach into no-man’s land between what we controlled and where the Taliban were. This time two years ago, I was down in the Falkland Islands with the Grenadier Guards, getting ready to return back to the UK. So it was time to have a bit of a relaxing time, complimented now by a charming chest infection – at least it is reinforcing the need for a decent sleep!!!
Following a great Christmas lunch (that lasted about nine hours), I decided to check the Boxing Day Test where I was hoping to see Australia continue the success of the third test in Perth and prove that the Australian Cricket Team are still great – oh well. All out for 98 in the first innings with England none for about three million so not a particularly auspicious start.
A few days of not working has been good though to think about all that has happened in 2010 and consider what I should do in 2011; I’ve never been good on resolutions – I can recall one resolution lasted about three hours! I think I will try and do a few things a bit differently in 2011 though, but will just see how long that lasts!
