It’s almost 2013 so it’s time for my annual look back over the previous 12 months. I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now and it’s a fun way to look back over the year. I thought I’d shake it up a bit this year and just take a look back over my highs and lows (but hopefully there won’t be too many of them) of the previous 12 months.
I’d also like to say a huge Thank You to you all for popping in here to listen to my ramblings. Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog, for your interaction on my social networks and
