If your New Year's resolution is to stop procrastinating, this weekend will provide a perfect opportunity for a little practice.


Use the long weekend to recycle your Christmas tree and save your feet from the constant threat of a surprise attack from a sharp fallen needle.

Walking on a bed of hot coals never sounded so good.
