A Kiss from Valentino – the only way to start 2010

I have to say my first thank you of 2010 to Terry at Universal Automotive who is now on my Christmas card list for next year [It’s a very prestigious list, I’ve seen it! – Ed].

Why? Because he was kind enough to send me a signed Valentino Rossi poster made out to me and complete with a kiss! My very own personalised poster from the world’s greatest motorcycle racer has now been given pride of place in my front room where everyone can see it – along with a security device good enough for the Mona Lisa!

While I’m on, next week on the 14th and 15th of January I shall be attending the Autosport International show at the NEC in Birmingham.

If you want to meet up to discuss 2010 CAT Mag advertising or take a break for a general chitchat and a cuppa, drop me an email at karen.reilly@haymarket.com and we’ll make a date.

Lastly I would like to say a belated Happy New Year! I hope you had a good one. I went to Waterloo Bridge and waited for the fireworks. I will NEVER do this again – far warmer to watch it on the telly!
