We all complain about our lives, but we do little to try to change them. I was reminded the other day that there are billions of people worse off than me. Many people my age can’t even switch a computer on, let alone type a blog and run a website. I have known things to be much worse than they are now. 2008 was a bad year and I resolved to make 2009, a lot better. I wrote a novel!

I have a hospital appointment in 2 weeks. I’ll have to pay £1 for every 30 minutes to park my car. Before the charges were introduced, I couldn’t get a parking space, people parked and went to lunch. I can park now and so the parking charge is a good thing. Right?
