Where were we? Ah, yes, the new year.

This 2023, the rest of us will have an extra national holiday day, but my birthday will be on Holy Saturday (which I am not very happy about).

The Pantone colour for 2023 is Viva Magenta. Honestly, I’m not crazy about it.
Miraculously, I will be on holiday until 8 January inclusive.

Apart from the dentist, the only things already planned are:

The art of imperfect action, with Oliver Burkeman, two two-hour sessions, live online on 14 and 15 January
– the Muse concert in Glasgow on 23 June.

So far, this year seems to be looking good.
Anyway, Happy New Year, and let’s hope it will be wonderful.
