We did it! We made it through Christmas, the New Year, slalomed through conversational potholes with our families, accepted socks with smiles, and we've tumbled into the new year. A little more padded round the waistband, a little worn down, and we can but sigh at the 'new year new you' mantras that fade into echoes around our head.
Another year, and yet I can't escape this odd buoyant optimism that's risen within me. I have made the decision to pursue the creation of film and television, and it gives me energy I'd forgotten I had. So as the Christmas tree decomposes on the pavement outside and every social media outlet tells us how to get our new year hot bod, I am energised by the prospect of working with new people in the year ahead, the mistakes I'll definitely make, and the work that I will create.
If you're interested in a sneaky snapshot of what I've been up to so far, here's a link to my show reel.
