This is your Northampton correspondent speaking to you from Reidski's spare room. He is cooking. It smells very nice.It looks very nice too. Can't wait.
I am seizing this opportunity to say that I am all packed for my trip to Lapland - but as I typed those words I realised I have left my lovely warm scarf at home. Sod it. Never mind - it's not like it's going to be cold or anything, according to the multiple news reports I keep hearing about how mild it is north of the Arctic Circle these days.
Whatever the weather I shall have a great time with great friends, and shall have someone to look forward to seeing when I get back.
I could not have imagined this time last year that a) I would in fact still be blogging at the end of 2006 and b) would be about to wish you all a Very Happy New Year using Reidski's computer. Life is full of surprises!
Have a Great 2007 everyone.
Expats - To Italians, Italy is no doubt the best country on Earth. I guess it's the same with Canadians, Nigerians, Sri Lankans and Bolivians. But me? I am English...
