Xin Nian Kuai Le/Happy New Year!

It's a new year, so time for a fresh look at all aspects of life.  One thing I have been quite frankly absolutely rubbish at is maintaining and updating this blog.  It is something that breaks my heart really as I loved writing this blog and used to greatly enjoy writing about my time in China.  I still blame the Blogger ban in China for halting the momentum with the blog, but really it is down to sheer laziness.  Alas, the routine of what is now married life with 2 jobs on the go leaves me with little time left to pursue on writing.

Since my last post (way back in March last year) Kimi and I got married in the UK, Kimi successfully got her residence permit, we moved into our first house together, visited Wenzhou to have a kind of unofficial 2nd wedding (very tempting to stay), and Kimi's mother even visited us for a month in the UK.   All in all 2011 was a very fortunate year for both of us, somehow everything worked out perfectly in the end.  Now 2012 has begun I am looking at pushing on with my Hypnotherapy business and possibly starting the degree in Counselling.  Kimi is looking for work in Manchester hoping to utilise her skills as a bilingual speaker.

Another resolution I have is to write more, so hopefully another blog will be coming soon -- and by that I don't mean another year!

Hi Chris,

Haven't checked your blog for a long time and was happy to see there was an update.

Very glad to see that you and Kimi have tied the knot.

Wishing you both the very best for this new year.
