Bugger me it's nearly January!

So here we are, about to say goodbye to 2007 and look forward to 2008. My wife Anna is currently having cuddle wars with our toddler daughter amongst much giggling from the small pyjama’d one who should have been in bed an hour ago. Coronation Street is on and I’ve almost finished my beer.

I’m on holiday right now, at the inlaws in Auckland and I find it amazing how people’s minds go on holiday from about December 1. It’s almost like we write off December in anticipation for the New Year. We reflect, but mostly we put the year to bed. A kind of ‘Control-Alt-Delete’ on the keyboard of life. Geeky analogy I know, but you get what I mean.

Now is when I want to write something inspirational for 2008 but I just don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean, I know roughly what will happen but I don’t know what form it will take.

I know that our family of 3 will become a family of 4 when our son is born somewhere in February but I don’t know what it will be like being a father of two.

It's also going to be a tougher year at work because my co-host Camille has gone off to have her baby and won't be back til April or May and I don’t know how the show will fare without her. On that, get in touch if you’re Wellington based, on air capable and want to be my producer for a few months.

New Years Resolutions are arse, however, I assure you that I will continue to be the best husband and Dad that I can be, and host the best radio show that I can. I'll also continue to be a shit stirrer...

A new year is about to dawn, cheers to it, respect to the year gone by and all the best to you and your family.
