I sometimes think that this blog only writes about banning driven grouse shooting – important though that is to me, it is not the only thing in the world.
But looking back over the year and the blogs I have written myself, there is a fair amount of variety. Here are some blogs, one from each month, that illustrate that and which I enjoyed writing at the time and re-reading to produce this list.
