New years resolution, what's yours going to be?

At seventy mine is going to be to make it through to 2018 - which is bad news for me as I have never been able to keep one yet! 

Cut back on the booze, cut back on pork pies and those bacon sandwiches, and to never ever go into to McDonalds again, and I fall at the first hurdle. Sad

Perhaps I should resolve not to make a resolution. That would work.

you could try to stop nitpicking, which might please a certain someone.

Re: New years resolution, what's yours going to be?

Up until last year every New Year's Eve SWMBO and I used to make a list of resolutions which we sealed in an envelope to be opened the following New year's Eve before making the next batch.

 

We gave up last year having realised that none had ever been achieved in 10 yearsEmbarrassed

For me it would be to eat healthy food and get back in shape. I have let myself go since my son was born two years ago.

I resolve to overcome crepuscular detractors.

Re: New years resolution, what's yours going to be?

chenks you've got me creasing up laughing in this thread mate... not just because of your mild jabbing at minivanman.. but also cos you got him confused with twocvbloke just like I do!!!

I often wondered if they were the same person myself.. lol
