Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

"'S' gorra be Welsh now, isn't it? No' tharreye do speak it, mind. I do talk tidy,  tha's worreye do do. Wenglish."

Nevertheless, the Welsh seasonal greetings are appropriate for my business blog Christmas message.

It'll be almost a year since I launched my coracle upon the waters, and an interesting year it's been. As you can find out if you read my work blog.

Meanwhile, there are a few inches of snow here on the Cheshire plain and much more up on the tops. It doesn't look set to stay though - but will we have a white Christmas yet?

Whether we do or not and whatever floats your boat, here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Leopard on the loose ...

There's been more for me from London - focus groups there last week as part of a freelance project - and more too from The Leopard.

I've updated the blog with some more poems and this month's featured poet, Jenny Hammond.

Jenny was one of the founder members. She turned up in a cold back room (not the lovely upstairs room we use now), hesitant, diffident and unsure what to expect. Three years later and she's had poems accepted by a range of magazines and is still a keen member of the group. I love this stuff ...

Check out The Leopard now for more Poetry from The Potteries.
