Happy New Year!

Best wishes to everyone for Chinese New Year.

I'm more than happy to say goodbye to the year of the pig. I came off my bike yesterday morning, spent an evening getting examined and x-rayed and then arrived home to a letter of notification that I didn't get the job I interviewed for last week.

Anyway, nothing's broken and work has been so happy lately that staying around isn't an unnatractive prospect. I've asked for feedback on the job interview and I'm going to use the long tube ride to work to catch up on all the bits of last weekend's newspapers.

So may the year of the rat be a good one. Here's the first sunrise from my balcony.

So sorry about the job - they're fools not to take you.

Lovely sunrise.

Thanks! Watching the sun come up is like my new religion. I didn't realise how deprived I was living on the first floor in the middle of the city!

Hope you have a prosperous $$$ year of Mickey Mouse!

Best of luck with job, so, my bike did have good fortune til it got nicked?

No lah! I still have a very respectable scar on my arm from a time I came off that bike in Hyde Park and crashed into a railing.

Happy new year! You can see photos of the London festivities on facebook :)
