Things are still very positive in my life.
This year's new job and move to Bristol have led to me having a busier, more active life and feeling more fulfilled. I still haven't really followed up on some of the other techniques for positive living previously mentioned but these are things that I'll look at again in the new year.
For now there's Christmas, which I am looking forward to, and the new year beyond.
Further updates in due course, but (much) more regular blogging can be found on the widow's world and my new blog, Lib Dem Gains.
