Here's something of a review of the year based on the most used topics and tags on this blog. A lot has changed this year, a new business, no booze, a book, travel, new horizons, important projects. Anyway, here's a review, and all in Twitter form.
Blackburn Rovers -
The. Worst. Year. Ever. But under Venky's things will get worse. I trust in the Trust.
Manchester - you can read all about my views on civic matters and business issue on my Downtown blog Taking the Michael.
the day of reckoning approaches. Two new supermarkets planned. Please don't let Asda build on Hibber Lane.
Football - really enjoyed watching the rise of Hyde FC and some other local encounters. Love real football. Against Modern Football.
Friends - since my career change I've really found out the value of true friendships, and false ones. You know who you are (happy face).
Politics - Disappointed that the people of Marple South re-elected our dismal councillor Shan Alexander.
Commuting - Don't do this quite as much as I used to. Doing the London trip a fair bit, avoiding the 19:05 from Euston.
- Obviously Match of the Day doesn't hold as much interest as it once did. But last night on MOTD2 I loved the dissection of two games by Pat Nevin. Shearer, get your coat.
Best day of 2012 - it's been a brilliant year, shared a stage with inspiring and brave people - but this day takes some beating. Getting my honorary fellowship from UCLAN.
Blogging - Going to do something very different on this blog from now on. Thanks for bearing with me.
