Ring out the old, ring in the new

So how was 2012 for you? Most people I talk to say they won’t miss it. I’m not sure, myself. 2012 saw the publication of the review of higher education governance in Scotland (that I chaired); the Olympics and Paralympics; Newcastle United ending the season at number 5 in the Premiership. I discovered the amazingly wonderful TV comedy series Modern Family (if you don’t know this, you really must watch it).

Then again, 2012 was the year of that so-called summer. Newcastle United ended the year at number 15 and falling. We all still seem to be in or near recession. Dallas returned to our televisions.

Who knows, maybe it was good, maybe it was bad. But here we are now, at the start of the new year. May 2013 be all that you want it to be.

Happy New Year!

  2. One of the unexpected benefits of having teenage children for me has been their introducing me to really good new music and TV programmes such as Modern Family.
