Merry Christmas

I’m unlikely to get the time to any blogging for the next week, so I hope you all have an enjoyable time, and I’ll see you all in a week or so for what’ll probably be some looking back at 2014 and ahead to 2015.


The joy of automation allows me to post this while I’m asleep. As with previous years, I’ve donated to Shelter instead of sending Christmas cards out, but I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a good time now and into 2013.

And now for the traditional picture of Colchester as it’s not looking right now. If tradition holds like last year, then this will hopefully conjure up weather so nice on Christmas Day it’ll be decent weather to go for a bike ride.

Because I haven’t sent any Christmas cards this year – I’ve made a donation to Shelter instead – feel free to freeze the below image on your screen and hang that up alongside your cards instead:
