I’ve loved 2017 so far and wholeheartedly jumped on the positivity/ New Resolutions bandwagon. The chance to shake off all the bad habits developed last year and start afresh. Maternity leave ended for me a few weeks ago so it was a double new beginning. During my nine months off or “holiday” as my husband jokes…
