It's hard to believe that we're back to Christmas time. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all those who've read my blog during the year and look forward to great interactions again next year.
It's been a big year for us. I've moved to a new blog, moved to a new website, and moved to a new house. All have been "entertaining" but I'm happy with the outcome in each case.
I hope you all have a happy Christmas period, no matter what your belief system is. For most it's a holiday period regardless.
If you are travelling, take care and travel safely. We had another tragedy in Melbourne yesterday, and it just shows how fleeting life can be.
圣诞快乐 to my Chinese readers too. I've made quite a bit of progress on my Chinese this year. The most interesting (yet sad) thing I did was to MC a memorial service for a friend's father, in both English and Mandarin. That was quite a challenge. Many of the things that I had to say were in very formal language. But I think I got through it OK. I'd never spoken to a crowd of people in Mandarin before, and particularly not a crowd of Chinese speakers. I just hope I didn't mess it up too much.
Thank you all for your support.
