In 2000, I was living in a one-bed flat in West London, working for the BBC and dating an American woman.
In 2009, I am living in the same one-bed flat in West London, working for the BBC (in a different job) and dating a (different) American woman.
However, this is progress, since in the intervening decade, there have been more ups, downs and descents into sheer hell than I had ever really expected. So for 2009 to be a stable year where I stayed in the same place, worked in the same place, and had the honour of dating the same woman is pretty darned cool in itself.
But here’s to 2010, and I hope you have a fab 2010 that brings you most of what you wanted. (Because if you suddenly had everything you wanted, wouldn’t life get terribly dull?)
