New Year


A very happy New Year to you all. I hope it brings you whatever you wish for yourselves...

So what resolutions did you make?
I dusted off a few old favourites like I should lose weight. I do that one every year and, to be fair, I do lose weight but those lost kilos sure do stick close to mamma because one slice of chocolate cake will see them crowding back and they bring friends. Seriously I have to lose weight...
Apart from that....nothing. A couple of years ago I tackled the fear of flying thing and I'll now at least get on a plane. I don't enjoy it but then I don't enjoy going to the dentist either.
I suppose one good resolution would be to think before opening my mouth...I truly was never destined for the diplomatic service and while friends and family make allowances I can upset people I don't know very well. I'm far too embarrassed to repeat any of my gaffes here but the edit button is one thing I really appreciate about blogging.

The pictures above are painted by a friend and sold at the Christmas markets. I think those bears are so cute...

Yay for 2007
I am giving up smoking, like a million others not looking forward to it but it will be done today is my last day. Fingers crossed I am not to snappy (giggle)

Happy New Year. I'm resolved to thank my lucky stars for what I have, and stop complaining about what I don't!

I'm giving up procrastination...well, when I get around to it...

Shaz - you should read Allen Carr's "Easy way to give up smoking" - I went from 40 a day to zero - six years ago.

Bone Année Angela - and to you all!

I have resolved to stay away from blogs that are frequented by obnoxious "regulars" (whatever the virtues of the blogger, sad to say). But yours, I'm glad to say, does not fall into that category, Angela. A happy and prosperous New Year to you, and to your cheerful band of commentators.

At the risk of appearing officious, might I propose, as a well-intentioned suggestion, that some of your regulars EXPAND their comments a little in the New Year.

I have decided that there are no real right words and no real wrong words. Instead, I have friends who tolerate my gaffes. I also try to take myself less seriously so that when I say something super stupid, I just laugh and say,"that was stupid." It works for me.

Happy New Year! :)
