    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2019 by Amy ListonNo comments

    It’s midday Boxing Day, the leftovers from Christmas are going into soups and sandwiches and the room is still tense from the competitive and bitter ending of the family Christmas games (seriously, who brought Monopoly?!) and suddenly – the dreaded question surrounding New Year Resolutions. *Intense scream* To continue setting the scene, you want a new job, but you don’t know what industry you ...

    As we approach the New Year (the only time I’ll ever have 2020 vision, and the last time we’ll hear that joke – finally .) it’s good to think ahead.

And if you think that I’m putting celery juice on this list then just stop right here and reconsider your choices. Celery is essentially water, go to the tap and stop lying to yourself, it doesn’t taste good okay Brad. Now, let’s ...
