2012 resolution post

2014 - Day 1

I went to a friends house last night, for a barbeque and games to ring in the new year and it was lovely. I was home in bed by 1 am, and as I had only had 3 Pimms with ginger beer and lemonade in a 6 hour period, I was fine to drive home.

We all wrote down our resolutions; we had to have 3, one to be completed by the end of March (learn all the words to Rapper's Delight), one the end of June (learn how to read/use a compass) and end of December (learn all the words to I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major General.*)

Someone asked me if my boss had gone back to Canada - his brother had a stroke recently, but he (the brother) is starting to get better - and I said no, he'd gone to Tumut. When asked why he went there, I told them how he had a friend there who owned a 'wine farm'. Yes, I realise now that I should have said 'vineyard', but at the time wine farm made more sense, but from now on, they shall be wine farms. And the people who work them shall be wine farmers.

I'm trying to give up Face Book, as I've come to the realisation that I only really care about maybe 10 people on it, and all the rest have incredibly drama-filled lives of their own creation that I don't care to know about, so I'm going to cut back to only looking at it on Sundays and that's it. So expect more posts here where I try to be witty.

*2013's resolution was to learn the song, but I forgot for about 6 months, and I've only really got 3 stanzas memorised. Ironically, the one year I don't have something about to do with getting healthy and fitter is the year I run in 3 fun runs.
