A day for quiet contemplation ...

I have decided that after 4 years, I am going to take a long break from the Diary and Facebook ... so this is the last entry for 2012 ... 

It's been an emotional roller-coaster this year both professionally & personally and I believe a few weeks to reflect, relax, recharge, release, renew, relive, reaccept, reapply, reawake, reacquaint, reabsorb, reconstruct, remember, rethink , recover, reinvent, redevelop, renest, and relove will help.

2013 is set to be a very, very busy year and I want to make sure that I am alive & kicking for it - in every sense of the term.

The series we have just finished filming will start airing internationally in February 2013.

The highlights of 2012 are many ... a few that spring to mind; driving my first safari, cuddling a lion cub, milking a camel, visiting Angkor Wat, catching a 75 kg yellow-fin tuna, walking around the top of CN Tower and walking with elephants ...

I have met some truly, truly wonderful people ... many who will be etched in memory for the rest of my life ... and that's why I love my job ... the people.

ILT isn't just me ... there's a team who work incredibly hard to make it all work ... and to them, I am just so, so grateful.

The show only gets produced because there's an audience ... THANK YOU ... it's all about sharing ... and as a favour to one of them: 

The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf & Hearing Children has teamed up with the British Paraorchestra and Team GB Paralympians on a new recording of True Colors.
Please watch, post, share, tweet and buy (especially from 17th December, when it'll help our bid to be Christmas No. 1!)

Wishing you all a very Happy Holidays ... and a very Happy & Peaceful New Year ...    ... Be well ...
