One month in and 2017 is already refreshing us in parts that other years (we’re talking about you, 2016!) have simply been unable to reach.
But there can be no let up! Sure, you may have many things planned this week that you feel will make the next 168 (or whatever is left by the time you read this) hours whistle by like jolly cockney workers, but before you close the calendar on another week, you should consider these 6 gems.
