So, how was your 2010?

It’s the end of the year. 2010 has been a good year overall, though tinged with the usual sadnesses, frustrations and uncertainties which life likes to throw at one. The occurrences from 2010 which were particularly noteworthy for me include, in no particular order:

  • Season Three of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK LoCo. Longer than usual, but a good one. Looking forward to next season though.
  • OggCamp 10, which was a lot of work and worry but went down well.
  • Visiting my godchildren on several occasions, watching them grow up.
  • Meeting up with old friends, singularly and in groups. A great evening out with Gareth in particular.
  • Seeing Richard Herring perform Hitler Moustache.
  • Seeing Doctor Who Live at Wembley with Heidi & Chris.
  • Launching the Don’t Listen Alone website.
  • Finishing my Advanced Diploma in Management Studies.
  • Seeing Folkface in Bristol.
  • Neil and Amy’s wedding, at which I got to ush people.
  • Mat and Gemma’s wedding.
  • Visiting Monaco two weeks after the Grand Prix and walking the circuit.
  • Visiting the village where I grew up for the first time in probably 20 years.
  • Climbing a wind turbine.
  • Geoff Sayers passing on, but getting together with old friends to remember him and attending the memorial service.
  • Going to OSSBarCamp, and having a great time thanks to Laura Czajkowski.
  • Doing the Great South Run. I ran a race, competitively!
  • Went on a hot air balloon ride – a heavily delayed birthday present from 2009!
  • Continuing to push myself to do new things with a camera. Which included getting a new camera and lens and attending two photography courses.
  • Meeting Ana for breakfast in London and touring some interesting new places.
  • Having a character in a Doctor Who audio named after me. Not just any audio either, but The Four Doctors.

So, what’s in store for 2011? I’ve got some ideas. Some things I want to develop further, some I don’t. Some challenges already lined up, others still gestating. One thing’s for sure: It’s going to be a game changer.
