Good day, mates!

Apologies for going full Pollyanna—particularly amongst our hellscape of a information cycle—however I kinda just like the month of January. My mother and father owned a lamp retailer for 40 years and it’s the place I spent my complete childhood. Enterprise boomed in January, when people had been craving gentle of their properties after discarding their Christmas timber and staring down a number of extra weeks of winter darkness. So the primary month of the 12 months was one of the best time to be within the retailer—in contrast to, say, July, which was a drag—as a result of it was bustling with chatty clients, the brightness inside contrasting with the gloomy climate exterior.
