Sometimes a concept, acceptable behaviour or even character can be spoon-fed to us throughout our entire lives. Thanks to clever and creative media we don’t even notice it- that everything is pushing us in a certain direction. But every now again, something comes along that can turns everything on its head. It picks you up, spins you around and shows you the bigger picture. And every once in a while, that same ‘thing’ will make more sense than pursuing ‘socially acceptable’. Sometimes that something is the catalyst for the biggest change of all.
A fitting end to any season is to look back over the events that have occurred throughout our time in it. It’s early evening on New Years Eve 2014, and this blog deserves a reflection.

The little brightly coloured Christmas lights sparkle and glow. Shining of memories. It’s a warming feeling. And it comes from more than just a set of tacky lights. After an extremely frantic week, somewhere after all the buzz of working, sending off orders and family time comes the opportunity to reflect on the week I’ve had.
