It is a new year, traditionally a time to look forward and start anew. But one key thought comes to mind - if you do wish to start anew, this can be done at any point during the year.

For this year, I have two projects
November has returned - and so have the fireworks concerts hosted by the charity Scottish Love in Action. These concerts were established eight years ago as an annual event for this charity as a means of raising funds for their work (and, to an extent, raising their profile). With three concerts held on two days over the weekend closest to November the 5th. (For
