Woman starts the new year the way she means to go on – hungover and miserable

A local woman has made a spectacular start to the new year after waking up hungover and miserable – a state she intends to fully maintain.

Mary McCartney, 28, spent New Year’s Eve imbibing many a potent potable. Throwing caution to the wind, Mary mixed her drinks with reckless abandon.

And this morning she’s paying the price.

‘My head is pounding, I feel like I’m going to be sick any second and I’m completely miserable…what a night!’ said Mary.

Ms McCartney sees no point in trying to turn her life around or turn over a new leaf just because a new year has started.

She told us: ‘This is probably the year we all die anyway, so why bother?’
