2022 was a tumultuous year. The Queen died marking the end of a 70-year reign, we had 3 Prime Ministers in 1 year, and Russia invaded Ukraine, becoming the first major conflict on European soil since the Second World War. The year ended with major disruptions caused by travel, postal and NHS strikes and weather-related disasters. We are now dealing with a cost-of-living crisis and a recession and Covid hasn't gone anywhere.
2023 will be the year in which we will try to overcome some of the problems facing us.
