No, I haven’t started some new cult, but for me, the new year doesn’t really have a chance to start until March 1st! January and February are just too manic and busy: after a brief interlude I have exams to mark, immediately followed by a very busy teaching period.

It helps that the weather is bright and sunny (if a bit cold), and a few spring flowers are showing. So I wish everyone a happy 1st March!
