Judging from my serious lack of posts this year, you'd be right to assume that work has taken over my waking hours. In the past year, I've helped cover the Indian elections for the Guardian, presented endless episodes of BBC's World Have Your Say from India and London, and spent weeks covering the heart-rending devastation of the Nepal earthquake for BBC World Service Radio.
So how does it feel to be living my dream: mother of two beautiful kids, work as an international news reporter/presenter, a husband who writes novels, endless adventures in one of the world's most beautiful, interesting and vexing places? Foof, well that's the first problem right there... I seldom sum up my own life that way. And I'm sure we all suffer from such myopia, especially parents of young children with the added challenge of working entirely for ourselves.
