Christmas is well and truly over and many will be left feeling glum due to the cold and rain of winter - so what better time to start thinking about those much-needed warm summer breaks?
A chance to sit in the sunshine, with a warm breeze from the sea and a cool drink in your hand is the stuff that holiday dreams are made of at this time of year.
And there's no need to travel miles if you live in the Burton, Uttoxeter and South Derbyshire area either - as just down the road is East Midlands Airport.
It offers the means to escape as we contemplate the bitter rain and freezing nights ahead.
