    For me, for true.

    What say you?

    As a side note, we all know the title quote, but when I researched it, I came up with this...

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way..."

    Jeez, life really is an adventure...

    What was good for you in 2012?

    What was bad for you in 2012?

    What do you plan, hope, and expect for 2013?

      Emm, what was bad for me, my son was involved in a serious accident. He fell from a balcony and could have died. It was touch and go as to whether he'd need surgery on his brain after fracturing his skull, particularly as there was a couple of small bleeds behind the fracture.

      What was good for me, emm, he survived and in the main is doing ok. smile

          I have decided, very recently, that I am going to take my online endeavors seriously. I am going to spend the free time which I have writing (and other stuff) to grow my income so that it overtakes my other income from work which I no longer wish to do. I will say goodbye Manchester Metropolitan, private clients etc.

      Hi, pretty tough year for me.  Old man had an accident and was laid up for months.  No money coming in and me doing all the labouring.  Broke my health and put relationships under massive strain.  Still, nobody died and whilst I might have lost a few friends last year, they weren't really friends. We've been through worse. I also got the opportunity to write a documentary script and meet some wonderful people. smile
