I donât tend to make New Yearâs Resolutions. Iâm never at my best during the cold, post-Christmas months, and thinking positively amidst snow, credit card bills and the pervading smell of Olbas Oil is a difficult business. Instead, I make my resolutions in September. Maybe itâs a throw-over from school days, when autumn meant the start of a brand new school year. True, weâd just had an enormous summer holiday to rejuvenate and inspire us, with plenty of time to spend trolling off to W H Smith for shiny new stationery. If only it was so easy now!
