On New Year’s Eve, I took a long walk along the Thames from Greenwich as the London sky exploded. And I felt happy.
Happy at the possibilities I’m looking at in 2006: plenty of jobs and projects coming up. At just how utterly amazing this town is; a place where you just can’t get bored, a place I’m happy to make my home. Even happy at the things I’m not happy about. Like not travelling enough. Not being fast enough in Triathlon. Not having a car, not having enough sex, having too big a balance on my Visa card. But all these things can be fixed. I’m happy because it’s important to have things to look forward to.
So welcome, 2006. It’s going to be a great year.
