2014: My year in tweets (January to June) – 1 January 2015
As I did last year, I’ve again cherry-picked some of my favourite tweets from the year.
Here’s how the first half of 2014 unfurled:
Happy New Year! Goodbye 2013. Hello 2014.

Drama in the hail. Black Beauty became bogged down on the grass. Wheels spinning. Fortunately a friendly delivery driver gave a hefty shove.

Blackbird singing away in the blackness of a miserable winter's evening. The sound of a far-away spring.

Took the train to Marlow earlier. Floods lapping the tracks near Bourne End. Marlow somewhat soggy with most of the park under water.

Just stepped outside. Wild and windy. Full moon. Clouds scudding. Trees swaying. A night to hunker down inside.

Windsor heaving. Queuing twenty deep for ice creams. The madness of Britain on the first warm day of spring.

Watching a Spitfire from my bedroom window doing tricks and fly-bys. Sure kids in WW2 would be as mesmerised as I am. Awesome sound too.

Despite the low expectations, difficult not to feel disappointed. Deep down we almost dared to believe England could win.
