On this new sequence for the new yr I will be visiting all 88 of London’s 1918 constituencies , in a randomly chosen order, and telling you all about the electorates represented.

Sonam and I grew to become very shut and remain close to this present day, speaking on Skype when potential and texting on WeChat, a favorite among Tibetans in India.

January seems to have been the month which most exceeded seasonal expectations, indeed all these blue skies assist clarify the way it managed to get so chilly.
