For me that meant a trip down to London from Macclesfield, then back up to Yorkshire to see my family, followed by a return to Macclesfield for a cyclo cross interlude in Bakewell and in Macclesfield.
Then we were very briefly in London before flying to Geneva for a few days of skiing in Chamonix.
Still, I had an enjoyable few weeks. I have spent a lot of money in the process but I gained a few presents and even (by some fluke) a cash prize at the Macclesfield Super cross!
Hopefully, I still have a bit of energy to get through 2014. I will need it this weekend for I am competing in the vet women's race at the National Cyclo cross championships and immediately after that I get to interview the different newly crowned national champions for the cycling magazine. I'd better eat three shredded wheats that day!
