It has been a rollercoaster year for us.
Dave lost a kidney to cancer a few months ago.
He is doing OK now.
Number 1 son is writing up his Phd and should get his doctorate from CERN in the new year.
First born is enjoying her teaching and is considering becoming a union rep for the NUT in response to some outrageous demands by the governing body of the academy she works for.
I am still enjoying my job, loving the kids I am working with.

There are 12 mobloggers ID's hidden within the pic.
Kudos to anyone who can find them all ( sorry it is directed at old mobloggers, I am on a nostalgia run)
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all on Moblog

Just wanted to give Dhamaka's (Carole Edrich's) Cancer reseach's Blog a mention.
Over the years she has been one of Moblog's main motivators in getting the community to get together to give help to moboggers in need of support.
Dhamaka has also benefited from the support of the Moblog community while undergoing treatment for breast cancer (for which she is very grateful).
Dhamaka was interviewed by the Daily Telegraph last Saturday and told her story starting with her diagnosis of breast cancer and ending with her looping the loop for the 'goingtitsup' breast cancer charity (oh, yes, and finding a little romance along the way)

I never did meet Alan but I have met Viv, Beth and Helen. The Dawson women are a special breed, strong, caring, generous and with a wicked sense of humour.
I am sure Alan had a lot to do in how the girls turned out.
This little video is a tribute to Alan (City til I die)
With love to the family
