New year’s resolutions for 2011

Phew, it feels good to ditch that red and green Christmas design and get back to the clean lines and no-nonsense layout of Kubrick. At some point over the weekend I might even do the same to the flat, metaphorically, although today I’m quite enjoying our cosy little tree.

Looking back at last year’s resolutions I am delighted to discover that one of them was to get the boiler fixed, which I did, at great expense and accompanied by a hefty dose of pain. I can’t remember now whether we got it fixed because it broke or just because we knew it needed fixing, but either way it’s a mission accomplished. I also did some good things that I wasn’t expecting to do, like leaving a job without another one to go to, learning how to make sausage rolls, and getting engaged.

But there are still things I need to do. Here are some of them.

  1. I will keep up with my writing course and actually finish the story I’ve been working on for the last year. It’s already the longest thing I’ve ever written, so it would be a shame to ditch it now.
  2. I will not become Bridezilla.
  3. I will find a better form of exercise than bloody Pilates.

Is three enough? I think three is enough.
