It’s fair to say I read a lot. I love books and always have a few stacked up next to my bed for a quick (or long) read before I fall off to sleep. I also love books for work, since although there is a huge amount of resources on the web, published books distill expert knowledge, are peer-reviewed and are a great way to get a good overview of a particular subject.
As I welcome the new year and type these words my kids are getting dressed upstairs, ready for a refreshing midday walk along Grantchester Meadows to lunch at the tearooms (with promises of scones). It’s been a busy year for me, but a very relaxing Christmas break, spent at home with the family just having fun. Which is my ideal Christmas, quite frankly.

Another year, another blog post. It seems I only have the inclination to write as the new year comes in – probably just a symptom of being too busy!
All has been a bit quiet here of late, 2011 was a very busy year for me both with work and family life. With half an hour left of the first day of 2012 I thought I’d record a few resolutions for the oncoming year.
- Photography – I have a great Canon 40D camera which apart from a fabulous trip to New York City has been unloved in the past year. I want to photograph more in 2012, starting with my attempt at the 365 project over on Flickr
- Writing – I also love writing, when I give myself the time to do so. I intend to write more in 2012 and will try to get my writing published elsewhere than just my own blog.
- Family – With Daniel almost 2 and Billy 4, our two boys are becoming very interesting little people. It goes without saying the next year will be full of lots of family time, but it doesn’t stop me making sure I remember it should be my focus.
- Cycling – I rarely cycle to work these days, even though the 4 mile journey is less stressful via bike than car (and takes about the same time). Really need to do this more to offset the beer and pies 🙂
Let’s see how I do in a few months time!..
[Edit: 2012 was a pretty busy year for me, mostly focussed on family and work. Though I did manage a few interesting trips abroad in Europe and the US. Not enough writing though, must try harder!]
I’ve just got my new shiny iPhone with Orange and am of course very happy with the UI, the apps and the amazing connectivity it gives you on the move. However, pretty rapidly after installing various apps I hit the problem of all installed apps closing immediately after opening them. Not good.

I’m in the process of rebooting my website and transferring content from the old www.srj24.co.uk website. If you’re visiting this site after picking up one of my business cards, please bear with me. Service will be resumed shortly…
