- going to Ghana and Egypt to research books and talk in schools
- the Football Academy series launching and doing so well
- getting into running and doing my first race
- being asked to do three more Football Detective books
- meeting Helena Pielichaty and setting up READS UNITED
- Leeds United winning about 40 out of their 60 games in 2009
- going on holiday with my family to Cornwall - twice
- reading books by Jed Mercurio
- being on Blue Peter
But the best thing about 2009 - by a loooooooooooooong way - has been my wife getting better.
Happy New Year!
