My 2012 intentions.
1. Eat Better
A revised version of my yearly promise to 'Lose Weight'. This renewed, new fangled adaptation of an age old wish reflects my more mature, knowing, motherly ways. Or possibly, as the scars of childbirth have healed, I have become more of a realist. In fact, scrap that. Let's just go for: 'Stop Eating Everything That Keeps Still Long Enough'.
2. Stop Rocking Boo To Sleep
She's lovely. I like the cuddles. But it's got to stop. I don't fancy doing it when she's seventeen.
3. Do Some Exercise. Regularly.
And farting about with a Wii Fit board in front of the telly doesn't count.
4. Stop Making Arrangements To Do Things I Don't Want To Do
Why do I spend half my life honouring commitments which when made, and indeed at no single point since, have I ever been even mildly interested in following up? Very annoying and absolutely bloody stupid.
So stop it.
5.Publicise This Blog
I like writing this. I like the thought that I will one day read it with my daughter. But. It would be dead nice...really lovely in fact...if I felt like I wasn't talking to myself. A Billy No Mates chunnering on in the ibis of cyberspace*. Feedback...a friendly ear... criticism...someone who's been there...any response really.
So Happy New Year to erm...well...at least me. I'm definitely here.
If you're here as well, thanks for reading. You make me feel all warm and smiley inside and like no so much of a weirdo internet loner.
All the best for 2012 xxx
* Cyberspace. How 1998 does that sound?
