Happy New Year!
Hope happy days are here and allâ€™s good. So far, Iâ€™ve slipped down a flight of stairs and given myself a royal pain in the neck (*muted shrieking hoping no-one would notice – Iâ€™ll never make a scientologist*), nursed a cold that makes me sound like Pat Butcher (God rest her soul), cancelled my holiday (wtf?) and been stuck for hours on a broken down train while a young girl sang Abba medleys and read the bible out loud. The youth of today… Thereâ€™s more but thatâ€™ll do, this isnâ€™t an episode of Enders.
Needless to say, Iâ€™m reaching out the hand of sympathy and solidarity to those of you who are also getting all their bad luck out the way on days one, two and three…
So, hereâ€™s the show thatâ€™ll make you feel better.
