It's late October and as we head toward the festival of Christmas it seems strange to look back on the year behind us.
Last Christmas I missed my company Chirstmas party because I fell ill with the flu. Colleagues who had not had the flu shot were much worse off than me and spent the entire Christmas and New Year ill in bed.
The year seemed to go very quickly and in September I found myself in California. Something I'd always wanted to do but never thought I would achieve.
California is a very beautiful country / state and I would like to visit it again. Will I be able to do so? Maybe not, but we shall see.
