We all feel optimistic at the start of a New Year and feel ready to take on the challenges that it presents. 

At least we feel that way for the initial few hours of the New Year anyways. When the harsh realities of January rear their ugly head however, many of us struggle to maintain the same level of vigour. It's at times like this that we need a comforting hug to tell us everything will be ok. 

Step forward Tom Hardy and his pet dog Woodstock. The duo appeared on CBeeBies to read a bed time story on New Year's Eve and it truly is one of the most comforting things you're likely to come across this month. 

So if you're feeling slightly unwell or the cold has just that little bit more bite than you expected, then take five minutes and indulge yourself in this little treat.
