Happy New Year!
"The new year is often a time when people decide to follow a new career," writes Catherine Scott in today's Yorkshire Post. And, for me, it was exactly a year ago that my new career as a stay-at-home-dad was being mooted. Charlie was due on January 1st, so things were rather quiet - the hospital bag was packed and everything was ready - and we were waiting. And waiting. And waiting. (Charlie was almost a fortnight late!) And while we were waiting for him, we were thinking. And planning. And the rest, for readers of this blog, is history! But it's fascinating to read in this article of others who have made similarly bold career moves. The reaction among my colleagues at school ranged from outright jealousy to thinking I was crazy. All I can say is that I thoroughly recommend it - I've not has as much fun in years! And it's the first New Year's resolution I can actually remember keeping, which has to count for something. So, whatever you plan or hope for, may 2009 be everything and more. Happy New Year!
