It’s been a while since this blog got updated; there’s been a lot going on.
Ava turned two on 10 January. She had a nice party (in Hoffi Coffi, natch). She says “ta” for all the cards and pressies. Pics on Flickr as usual.
I’ve got a new job. From 1 March (or thereabouts) I start on secondment from WAG as director of finance with the Forestry Commission Wales. Looking forward to the new challenge, even if my base will stay in the Cathays Park office in Cardiff.
The four probation areas/trusts have had their application to merge approved by the Ministry of Justice. The Wales Probation Trust will be established from 1 April, and I hope to be considered as a member of the Trust.
The one thing that hasn’t changed lately is Ebbw Vale rugby. The quality has remained at the same low level. Crashed out of the cup to Llanelli on a frozen Tredegar pitch, terrible in a friendly against Carmarthen Quins, and apparently equally terrible in a league game at Llanelli. Next up is Bedwas on Sunday. I’ll be there, but I’m not expecting much.
Great Superbowl result. Heavily favoured Peyton Manning & the Dolts lost to the New Orleans Saints. Aints no more.
