Happy New Year to everyone who reads this blog. I hope that it brings you everything you want. For me it will eventually bring me to the position of District Governor of district 105M within Lions Clubs International but there are several challenges that face me before then.

On top of that the month started with the birth of my second grandson, Joshua. Later in the month one of my brothers was diagnosed with and operated on, successfully, for a brain tumour.

Once again I find a month has passed since my last blog although this time the month did include two weeks holiday. Not that I could totally escape Lions on holiday although I suppose I could have not found local wi-fi to check my mail.

Since returning from holiday it has been virtually non-stop Lions (so much so that five days have gone past between starting to write this post and finishing it).

For my club a barbecue was held in our outgoing president Tim’s back garden (and it stayed dry) whereas for district we had a meal at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull.

In just over a year, all things being equal, my fellow 1st Vice District Governors will be making our final preparations to attend Lions Clubs International’s International Convention in Hamburg. While there we will attend four days of training before being sworn in as District Governors for 2013/2014. As part of the lead up to this we attended our second training weekend at St John’s Hotel in Solihull.

And so the days have flown past again and the blog has lain untouched. I keep meaning to write something but I never seem to get around to it. At last I’ve found myself with a couple of hours and the will to write something so here goes.

It’s almost exactly a year since I started this blog after I was elected as 2nd Vice District Governor for Lions District 105M (The UK Midlands). This weekend just gone I was lucky enough to be elected as 1st Vice District Governor for the 2012-13 year so the journey continues. The scary thing is that in around 1 year from now, all things being equal, I will be the District Governor Elect.
