Being cold and depressed needn't be your lot this winter.
True, Christmas is over (tiny sigh of relief) and it feels like there's hardly anything to look forward to, but it's actually quite freeing not having to enjoy yourself in a tradition-led way.
As luck would have it Merryn and I have both been in the market for a new car over the last month – obviously the cars we have ended up with couldn’t be any more different.
For various reasons we both felt it was time to join the world of the 4 x 4, something I swore I would never do…. but then I never thought I would be married with a child living in rural England, so there you go.
