New Year's Idiocy?

I know we all make ridiculous NY resolutions, like losing half our body weight by the end of next week, or perhaps swearing off the vino in the evening, (chortle) but I think my decision to write a blog reflects seriously on my sanity. Having spent the latter half of 2007 reading some great blogs, I realized I was spending far too much time at my computer. So I'm not quite sure why I decided to start my own; I mean I'm having enough trouble keeping my bottom off the back of my knees as it is.

Having written one book in 2006, http://www.rulesbritannia.com/, and supposedly working on at least another two, I am going to have to limit my blogs entries to about twice a week - unless I have something really important to comment on, which I usually do.

So what are my other NY resolutions ? Hmmm... (quick, make something up)

- to lose half my bodyweight by June 30
- to limit myself to two glasses of wine when I'm attempting to help with algebra homework, (otherwise I dissolve into tears)
- to get outside for more than the five minute walk to and from school each day
- to tackle one writing project at a time (oh, there's a good one)
- to finish all other projects (eg. knitting, painting and sewing) or throw the bloody stuff out

oh yes,

- to make my body my priority this year. No more "Oh I couldn't work out because I needed to get some stamps" excuses

Just call me optimistic!
Happy New Year.

  1. Oooo, I think this blog is going to be good. You're on my blog list now after just one posting. I'll be cheering for your weight-loss and do-something-with-all-those-projects efforts. Looking forward to post no. 2.

  2. Swearing off the vino is always a bad idea in my experience. Far better to swear on it (or swear by it).
    Welcome to the world of blogging, Expat Mum! Within a few months, I can guarantee that you won't even recognise your children (and if that isn't a recommendation to any mother of three, then I don't know what is).

  4. Can pretty well relate to all of your resolutions.....in fact, yes, all of them. How scary is that?

  6. Did you lose half your bodyweight by June 30. Mind you, I saw you in July and you looked pretty trim!
