Happy New Year

'New Year 2011 - Greetings' by valcanno on Flickr

Yes I may be a few days late, but the sentiment is still there right?

I hope you’ve had a relaxing and fun Christmas break. I thought I’d share a couple of the gifts I got with you. The first is this beauty (the T-shirt, not the guy). My fantastic wife Kirsty bought it off Threadless, and when I opened it on Christmas day, she said: “I’ve got a confession. I liked it so much I bought myself one too!” So you might just see us out and about sporting matching shirts now!

The other great gift I got was also from my wife. She tracked down one of these very cool items! (the sticker, not the macbook) which I’ve now adhered to the front of my laptop if you ever need to identify me when I’m sitting in Starbucks!

What was the best gift you got or gave this year?

Anyway, back to the new year. Over the past few months I’ve been trying to get into a rhythm of posting particular things at certain times of the month to try and give more continuity to the blog. Sadly due to the consolidation of Youth Work Now into Children & Young People Now Magazine, my regular column has come to an end and there will be no more YWN Articles posted. Instead, I hope to continue with one of the following each week; Guest posts, Mistakes I’ve Made, Free Resources, From the Archive reflections, and a series looking at Youth Work Basics. This will all be thrown in with the usual random posts on youth work related news items, links, thoughts and reflections.

Although I aim to post at least once a week, please bear with me and maybe even give a gentle nudge if things start slipping! Welcome to 2011.
