Happy New Year!

It’s New Year’s Eve and the bins have been overflowing since Christmas Day. Why the bin men needed an extra two days off, I don’t know!

Before I wish you all a Happy New Year, Steve Green decided to tag me on Christmas Eve with a meme asking me for eight wishes for 2008. So here goes:

1. The Conservative Party to go from strength to strength.

2. The government to finally scrap the proposed ID cards. (Plenty of hard campaigning there for all of us).

3. The government to increase defence spending and give our troops the pay, conditions and equipment they deserve.

4. Durham County Cricket Club to win the County Championship.

5. The cost of fuel to go down.

6. To be settled back home and the memory of flooding to be well and truly behind us.

7. To become a councillor. (That’s a dream my fairy godmother couldn’t grant me!)

8. To be a happy, healthy family.

All that remains is for me to thank everyone for reading and contributing to my blog over the last year and I hope to see you all – and more readers – doing the same in 2008. Have a very Happy New Year!

  1. Andrew, Good luck with No 7. Never give up hoping, one day your dream could come true.

    Happy New Year to you too.

  2. Happy New Year. I’m not sure 7 is all its cracked up to be…

  3. Happy New Year Andrew. I hope at least some of your dreams come true, especially 6 and soon.

  4. Happy New Year, Andrew and good luck with your wishes, especially 6 and 8.

  5. My Son, My Son,

    Andrew, My son, I have looked for you for years….

    “Two passions are not likely to die out of the world, the love of country and the love of freedom. They can be kept pure by one thing, which can tame yet not weaken them, tender love of all mankind.”
    George Trevelyan in 1943

  6. I think it would be fantastic if number 4 happened – the game needs a strong Durham (and it would hack off a load of people in Yorkshire, which would make my life still more pleasurable !)
