1) I have confessed to a couple of people in the last week that my real New Year's resolution was to be magic, by which I mean be Good, Kind and Full of Inventive Solutions that actually add up to net improvements in as many of the lives over which I have influence as possible. It's a lofty goal. Thank-god it's only February because so far I've not made much inroads with this.
2) Clara put a curse on the ring I am currently wearing by applying a magic golden balloon, five bracelets and a chant to it. Apparently now I can't wear it to work because, to quote Clara directly, "it will make your colleagues very greedy." Oh dear.
