2010 Resolutions

  1. To get to see Arsenal play at least once this year – FAILED. Just not in the form for discretionary travel in 2010…:-(
  2. To visit a country I’ve never been to before – FAILED. As per 1 above, plus nowhere interesting came up during the course of the working year
  3. To start cycling again as soon as the weather improves – EPIC FAIL, as you might say. I think I went cycling once. Had a puncture. End of story.
  4. To generally get the oul‘ bod a bit more together – FAILED. I stuck with the Wii Fit for a while, but fell off the wagon fairly quickly once I was back at work.
  5. To undergo a spot of elective surgery – I discussed the matter with my consultant and came to the conclusion that there were too many risks involved, so I decided not to go ahead with it. And that concludes that matter.
  6. To either change my car or keep it for longer – SUCCEEDED. Sold the Lexus – bought a Prius. Delighted with it. But Mrs. P is on notice that as soon as I come across an affordable Lexus hybrid, I’m in like Flynn
  7. To have a better year at work than I had last year – SUCCEEDED pretty much, although I went through a ropey enough patch in the Autumn
  8. To see friends more – EPIC FAIL
  9. Not to volunteer to do anything for anyone under any circumstance – SUCCEEDED
  10. To stop wrecking me own head – SUCCEEDED pretty much

And so to 2011:-

  1. To get to see Arsenal play at least once this year
  2. To visit a country I’ve never been to before
  3. To start cycling again as soon as the weather improves
  4. To generally get the oul‘ bod a bit more together
  5. To start doing a bit of handiwork around the house
  6. To get back into doing a bit of picture painting (I kid you not…)
  7. To have a better year at work this year than I had last year
  8. To see friends more
  9. Not to volunteer to do anything for anyone under any circumstance
  10. To stop wrecking me own head.

Watch this space…
