I got a shiny new Sony tablet for Christmas, and it is time to try it out. This is in fact already the largest body of text I have typed on it.
It has, broadly speaking, been a good year. There have been trips to Brazil, Italy and Ukraine, though you might find Facebook a more promising place to read the details - and Viv's Facebook more promising still.
So this morning, here I am, one more commuting on a train, stuck on the slow direct train to Manchester because my usual trains are not both running. Never mind.
I certainly don't promise to write here regularly. But if I do, I hope that it will more than travel and weather. More liberal readers may want to look away now. Have fun.
