It is that time of the year again : the time I wheel out the resolutions (most of which are as old and as faithful as a Yellowstone geyser), dust them off, air them out .... and then forget them within a week. If my grandchildren ever study the record of my life based upon nothing but my ill-kept diaries, they will assume that I suffered from some form of perverse counter-hibernation which resulted in me being hyper-active for the first week of January before I settled into another year of silent obscurity. So, before the moribund months take hold, here is my 2012 Resolution List. If I can still summon the energy to lift finger to keyboard at the end of the year I will try to remember to review my progress.
IN 2012 I WILL :
* Become a fitter and healthier person as I eat less and walk more.
* Finally complete the Great Novella of the 21st Century (if ever I can remember what the role of the French couple is within the complex plot-line I mapped out a year ago).
* Regularly chart my progress in the longest dog-walk ever undertaken - Fat Dog To The Big Apple.
* Be a better, more interactive and more regular Blogger.
* Waste less time.
As an early pointer to my end of year report I should mention that I managed to waste at least half an hour putting together the ridiculous image that illustrates this particular post.
