Happy New Year 2016! Or is it?
So yesterday we can say the wobbles of a newly sober being came up against the voice of Auld Acquaintance and indeed I shamefaced did share a cup of kindness yet for the sake of auld lang syne. More than a cup indeed (hangs head in shame) all alone on the sofa, not really enjoying it as much as one would have hoped.
Am I proud? No!
Will I take this as a defeat? No!
Do I regret it? Yes!
Could I have avoided it? Yes.
Did I want to LIE to you all and pretend it was Day 6? Hell yeah!
So taking inspiration from the last verse of Auld Lang Syne I say to you that the last verse sums it up perfectly for everyone starting anew in 2016 with regrets and worry and shame and fear -
And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
