A Sorry Start
New Year's Day began with a baby burning with fever and now we've fumbled our way into the new term amid a fog of phlegm and flu.
The snow has melted leaving the world a muddy shade of brown and for a long, quiet week we've hidden ourselves away and waited for time to make all things well.
It's an inauspicious start to the new year, but things can only get better from here.
