“Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’…” ― Alfred Tennyson

With Christmas out of the way for another 12 months I am very much looking forward to getting things back on track.

I was very optimistic before I broke up for work for the festive season that I would get a lot of work done during my time off. I had a pile of books waiting to be reviewed which desperately needs cutting down to size a little bit [I have a terrible habit of getting far too far ahead of myself with reading, and not quite keeping up to speed with reviewing]. Unfortunately my optimism was ill-founded, and alas my workload is as big as ever.

The post Christmas lull should be a nice time to get some work done, so here’s to the start of a happy, constructive and prosperous 2014!

I have a lot planned for the next few months, aside from a stack of books I hope to work my way through, I will be assisting with writing a book for the publishing house where I work, which I’m sure you’ll agree is incredibly exciting, if a little daunting. Before Christmas I also was asked to reviewed a book for the magazine Global – the International Briefing, the next issue of which should go to press within a couple of weeks, so be sure to watch this space.
