Long time no see.

Long time no see.

Since my last post I managed to get married, go on an amazing honeymoon and survive Christmas and New Year. I thought blogging while on honeymoon would be a little beyond the pale.....

So better late than never, here's my review of my goals for 2007 and my thoughts and plans for 2008.

2007 was a good year. My main goals for the year were to (in no particular order):

  • Get married
  • Have a better work/life balance
  • Play my part in helping the SNP win the election
  • Improve my range of professional skills

Married – check. New job means weekend working is a thing of the past and I can for the first time in 5 years make plans to go out midweek without worrying about work. The SNP are now in Government in Scotland, and the expanded range of responsibilities I have with my new job means that I'm still learning new things at work while keeping my hand in with writing and media/PR work.

So this year, I've a lot to live up to. Given the life-changing 2007 I had it would be difficult to set new goals which are as challenging, but I reckon that while my work goals will be set at a high level I want to spend the next year enjoying my new life with Debbie and my friends and family. So, for posterity's sake, here are my personal goals for 2008:

  • Set up a new home with Debbie

  • Get a golf handicap below 20

  • Get fit

  • Blog regularly

So – here's to a successful 2008 for us all!
