With the melancholy that often comes with January (a brand new year, but also dark mornings and cold nights), it’s hard not to look for comfort from wherever you can get it. Sometimes, it’s food. Or television. Or alcohol. But, while you may have some nice nibbles and treats left over from Christmas and you aren’t yet ready to brave the outside...
