2019 was a busy old year and in keeping with most of the previous 44, not particularly good though far from the worst. I guess that’s why I never celebrate New Year!
Whilst out and about on my tours I watched them filming the new James Bond film which will handily go on my James Bond Tour. I also met plenty of big names whilst out and about in London and was on the television news in the spring and then picked by the BBC Comic Relief show to do a special Sherlock tour for some lovely prize winners which also involved giving a tour to some great Sherlock actors which started off scary, went through a weird phase and ended up being a lot of fun.
Again, I haven’t had a day off all year one way or the other but that’s ok. Apart from the buses where I live, the worst aspect were the continual Extinction Rebellion protests which were seemingly timed for when politicians were away, the weather was nice and people were on holidays which of course made my job a complete nightmare!
As for writing, I haven’t done as much as I would have hoped. I’m probably 50% through writing a new book on the Secret Sacred Gardens of the City of London, based on the tour of the same name! But I’ve been too busy to finish it off so far.
I became a member of Middlesex Country Cricket Club earlier this year as I love cricket. However I hate the short 20.20 games and that combined with my work schedule, long travel times to the games, I only got to see one day of games all year.
Hopefully that might change one day soon as I am hoping to move house in the next month or two. I had expected to move before Christmas but my previous buyers quit on the day we were signing contracts and delayed everything by two months. Please join me in sending them very bad psychic thoughts their way!
Even more bad thoughts should be sent to the man who attacked me nearly 2 months ago.
I would say lets hope for 2020 to be different but who am I kidding! Happy New Year to those who celebrate!
