Thanks for visiting the blog and welcome back.
Sorry for not posting since early December - the bad weather, workload and some blog-free time over the festive season all played their part. That and trying to work my way through all those Christmas puddings I made..
So since it's January, it's probably fair to say it's time to talk about resolutions.
I know. You might be fed up with them already.
When I looked up "resolution" on a well-known online dictionary, one of the results was:
resolution noun (DECISION)
• an official decision that is made after a group or organization have voted to approve/adopt a resolution
e.g. The United Nations passed (= voted to support) a resolution to increase aid to...
• a promise to yourself to do or to not do something
e.g. I made a resolution to give up chocolate
I love the way they just randomly single out chocolate like that!
Many of our new year resolutions are based around food - what to eat more of (or less of). Or maybe try to be a bit more active or take part in a new activity. Or to try something new. Or re-discover something you had lost. Or see more of those people you don't see enough of.
It could be a change of career, a course of study, a hobby or skill that you've always wanted to have a go at. Or mabye brush up on an old one. Whatever your resolution(s) for this year are, I wish you every success and stay with them!
For me, my resolutions tend to be a bit like an online shopping "wish list"; I usually add to my resolution basket lots of things I'd like to have but realistically, are beyond me for this year.
Or next year, now that I think about it.
So my resolution for 2011 is not to have one. Instead, I'm going to keep doing the things I do, but just do them better. And be a bit more organised in how I do them.
Whether it's at work or at home, that's a promise I'm making to myself.
Damn - told you I was no good at resolutions.
All the best
