Let's make this a quick one. I'm a busy dad, you know.
First of all, nothing comes close to the friendship I've developed with my wee little girl this year. She's two and a half now, and becoming ever more switched on. She embraced the recent house move admirably. She also has a sneaky sense of humour and will make a great fighter one day. (Coming from a civilised man, this means intellectual fighting, like the ones you encounter in a court room. Naturally.)
Did I mention a new house? Yes, I did. It's great. Right next to an Ofsted outstanding (for 20 years running) school. And a park in the back, which means no-one overlooks us, which is great. I'm earmarking the garage as a dual study slash workshop. Stay tuned.
Personally, I've been doing a lot of stuff in Racket this year. Mostly personal projects still under wraps.
OK, so my wife is calling me from upstairs now. Talking of which. She is great. I dedicate this blog post to her. You are a strong, beautiful woman in the face of all the hiccups you've encountered throughout your life (including me!). I love you.
