Wine isn’t the only thing that’s been mulling over the festive break. For many of us, this ‘winterval’ will have provided some time to stop, reflect and take stock of the year that has passed and the new one to come. With a bit of headspace, away from the myriad usual daily responsibilities; our achievements, challenges, aspirations and resolutions are all there for contemplation.
Now that you’ve had a chance to mull these things over, what changes are you going to make?

Has your lifestyle changed and you could do with earning a bit more? Whatever your aim, there are a few practical things you need to get sorted to help you make that dream into a reality…
