New Year, new ideas!

Happy New Year! 2013 sees the start of many things for me (I hope!). For Christmas I got an awesome telescope from my boyfriend (The Legend) as a present for us both as we both have a keen interest in Astronomy, especially since we have become avid campers with a mutual high respect for things outdoorsy and natural.

Last Easter, we camped in the Lake District and saw the clearest skies we'd eve experienced. I had just downloaded a Night Sky app on my iPhone, so we were able to explore the constellations and even pinpoint exactly which bit of space junk we were looking at! Even on holiday in Kefalonia, in July, we sat on the beach and explored the sky.

We also hope to finally buy our own home, go on a road trip in the USA, and get fit, but all good things come to those who wait, I guess!

Workwise, I will soon move from my second home at the BBC Television Centre to New Broadcasting House. This mixes up lots of different feelings, and I will miss the old creaky corridors of TVC and the surprises they bring in the form of various celebrities that I have encountered over the years! But old with the old and in with the New! Being part of the new International Newsroom should be pretty interesting!

I also fancied kick starting my blog again, even if just to document what's happening in my life and the things that interest me....and see where it takes me

Anyway, enough about me. I hope you had a great new year and I hope you will enjoy following this blog....
