Christmas is almost upon us which means a cycle of shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking, eating,(mostly mince pies) and, this year, essay writing. Wrestling 7,000 words of notes into a 5,000 word argument is slipperier than catching a greased turkey for the oven. All creative work has been shoved firmly to the back of the cooker. Hopefully it will be full steam ahead in 2012.
Happy Christmas one and all, here's to a fulfilling, happy and healthy New Year!
