Christmas Time is here...

21 December 2007

JD & I would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a lovely 2008. Click here for our Christmas card to you:-)

So what has happened this year? Not much I guess. Or maybe actually quite a lot.

On the sporty-front first.

JD has finally fully quit rugby and thrown herself in to fencing with some gusto. She has talent, the people at her club seem to treat her as their little pet project (there are only very very few women fencers hence they are very keen for her to become a really good fencer). In true Jane-style, she has already offered her services as club secretary. She just can't help herself. JD has also won her first medal of her fencing career and I was just exploding with pride!

I have finally left Old Leamingtonians RFC and joined Olney RFC. Much closer to home, only a 15 minute drive instead of 50 minutes. So far I have managed to steer clear of offering my services for a committee position but I am sure I too will find myself volunteering for something next year. So far I have been doing reasonably well but as much as I hate to admit it, I think age is starting to creep up on my body. I have been out or down a few times with injuries. Pulled calf (twice, different), twisted ankle, huge bruises, painful shoulders and just general feelings of pain all over.

We moved from Leamington Spa to Northampton. A lovely bright little 2 bedroom flat with a lovely view over Northampton. The second bedroom serves as an office for JD because: she has started with her PhD!

In 3 years time, she will be Doctor Daniel. Still not sure what it is exactly she will be doing, but it has something to do with Corporate Social Responsibility. It is a hot topic in business at the moment so hopefully she will be able to get a good job at the end of it. Of course she just wants to keep learning and is thinking about a career as an academic or lecturer. Great. No money, lots of prestige!

And finally, I am now an auntie! After a lot of hard work and trying for a long time, my lovely sister gave birth to Federika, aka Bob in May. Bob is lovely and almost makes me want a baby myself. Almost. No completely. I am very proud of my sister and she is a wonderful mother to a lovely daughter.

A good year I guess. I hope it will be a good one next year as well. Merry Christmas.
