Our highlights of 2012, and our new year resolutions for 2013

It’s our last day in the office before Christmas, so we’ve been looking back over the last year and talking about our favourite moments. Naturally, this led us to plans for 2013 and our new year resolutions.

Doddy – Features Editor

One of Doddy’s best moments of the year was a trip to the Highlands with Rob Jarman

The best things about 2012
-A trip to Fort William with Rob Jarman, and being shown around by the lovely Hannah Barnes.

New year resolutions
- Have some time off the bike travelling, and come back with a vengeance.
- Get myself properly fit next year
- Beat Scott Beaumont in the triple burrito challenge
