And even though it's started badly - on the scales this morning I found that my already excess weight has increased by one pound from last week - I am feeling in better spirits. A new start. Sensible eating, fitting in more exercise (or trying to at least), writing daily (ditto), and, most importantly, living life to the full. (As Leslie reminded me I'd resolved to do!)
With rock stars of varying levels of fame popping off on an almost daily basis since the year began, and all of them only a few years older than I, it's time to grab those moments again.
