Happy New Year! Or, should I say, happy period of adjustment to writing "2023" instead of writing "2022" on dates. I was saving my blog post on article counts on The Guardian and I realised that I consciously realised that it was 2023 when writing the date. I wonder how many blog posts I will write and accidently publish with a date in 2022 over the next few weeks, however.
Yesterday evening, I watched the Scottish Hogmanay celebrations on television. As always, the coverage was a pleasure to watch, with some amazingly talented artists on stage. I shall have to listen to more of Mànran's music, who were up on stage singing a few country songs. The fireworks display was terrific. The weather in the Capital must have been rainy as there were water droplets on many of the cameras that were covering the event.
To everyone who has read my blog in the last year, and to all of those reading now, thank you for coming to my small corner of the internet to read my writing. It's an honour to have you here!
