If proof were needed that I am no longer young and hip, it is my newfound passion for a ramble.

As an angsty teen, and later as a perennially hungover student, I deeply resented family walks, which were compulsory at this time of year. To me the fuzzy, neither here nor there period between Christmas and new year was best spent sleeping till noon, then transferring to the sofa to watch an old movie - preferably 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' - and work my way through a chocolate selection box.
