Happy New Year!

Okay - New Year Eve here in Australia and I am just contemplating whether or not to make any resolutions this time round (I usually start off great with them and then get distracted over time. Not that I'm implying I am as blonde as once I wa.. oooh shiny thing!... erm... never mind)

So this year I may just keep it simple. 

*Work on myself (get back to my daily walks after work - it's good for my stress levels as well as my health).

*Be committed with my studies (I am doing a part time - via online - Bachelor degree. Only 9 more subjects till I graduate)

*Don't let my work rule my life and leave the stresses behind each night

*Work on my relationship

*Keep up the cheer to my adopted soldiers and decide whether to adopt any more when these ones go home (I probably will - I just hope I get more that aren't too freaked by the Strange Aussie Girl)

*Conquer the Debt monster (I think I need to refinance the mortgage this year - maybe consolidate my credit debt in to that and sort it all out)

*Work some more on my relationship (we've both gotten complaisant after seven years together)

You'll notice I'm not putting in any impossibles there - like "resist all chocolate temptation" or "strive for world peace".

My New Years hope for all my friends - Stay safe, be well, keep in touch.

And now I need to go write some "what I did on my holidays" cards to Martin & Gilbert so they have mail to return to after their Christmas leave. Take care all


  1. Wow, it's like a time warp or something... what's the future like?
    My resolutions will be simple...something I'll have to think about.

  2. Good goals! Happy New Year to you, too. Be safe and happy!

  3. G'DAY G'DAY I hope that you have a great new year.

  4. CI-Roller - The Futures so bright I have to wear shades :)

  5. Yep, I'm of the same mind resolution wise. I think those boys are lucky to have you! Have a great holiday...

  6. Whoops- looks like Blogger ate some of my replies. Let's try that again

    Coffey - thank for the good wishes. Our New Years here will be quiet and dull. No party for us but then again also no clean up afterwards (I'm leaning towards the "no extra work" as a win)

    Mike - thanks for the G'Days! :) - you seem to know the lingo, have you traveled downunder?

    Hope - Happy New Year to you. May your children allow you to sleep in tomorrow :)

  7. Happy New Year! May 2010 be a great year for you..
