Right, enough of this ‘misery in January’ palaver! All this ‘dry January’, frantic dieting and rushing off to join a gym is a load of twaddle! Yes, Christmas is over but it doesn’t mean we should all wear sackcloth and ashes and self flagellate! Some of us have birthdays in January and the days are getting longer! I’m on a one woman mission to cheer everyone up. Go out and have that glass of wine, eat cake, knit and be merry! It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to enjoy yourself (if you’ve given the plastic a bashing last month), go see a free exhibition, go see that buddy you haven’t seen in ages and go for a walk (after all the gym costs a packet and you’ll have lost interest by mid February anyway).
