I’d like to once again wish everyone a very happy New Year and hope that your Christmas break was a relaxing and joyous time. Mine certainly was very enjoyable. I was fortunate enough to spend time with my friends and family and enjoy all things festive. Downton Abbey’s Christmas Special was most certainly a highlight, and my homemade Christmas truffles went down a treat!

Today, as I’m sure many of you will have too, we’ve returned to the office. For some returning to the routine of work can be a little daunting. However, I always think it’s quite a nice time to get back to normal and look forward to what’s ahead.

With economic gloom hitting the headlines already this year I thought it would be nice to mention just a handful of things which we can all be excited about in 2012.

olympic-2012-torch

London Olympics 2012 –The most prestigious sporting event will undoubtedly take over the country when the London Olympics get underway in summer. I wasn’t lucky enough to secure tickets myself but nevertheless I’m still eager to watch as I think that the event will instil a great sense of solidarity in the country.

Olympic Torch Relay-.Before the games begin we’ll see the 70 day Olympic Torch Relay covering the country as a select group of Olympic Torchbearers travel up and down the United Kingdom with the iconic Olympic flame. Superbly the route, which covers many towns, cities and suburbs, ensures that everyone will be within a reasonable one hour journey of the torch. 

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee- After a triumphant year for the royal family in 2011 with two royal weddings, glamorous overseas tours and the excitement of new additions. It’s seems difficult to top however, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June has all the ingredients to be a real success and great chance to celebrate. Lucky for us we even get a celebratory Bank Holiday!

Making of Harry Potter

Harry Potter Tour London- Finally (and perhaps my favourite) is the grand opening of Warner Bros. Studio Tour of Harry Potter which opens its doors to the public in March 2012. An alternative to the Harry Potter based theme park in Florida, the studios are situated here in the UK only a short distance from Central London. The incredible sets and studios, which have so convincingly turned the wizardry and magic of Harry Potter into life, are set to be a fantastic day out which everyone will enjoy.
