And so we begin

And so we begin a new year.  If I could wish for one thing, it would be good health for all I know.  This past year it seems many of my friends or their loved ones have suffered from ill health in one way or another.  I hope this new year will bring a change in fortune for them.

Last nights next door party was not as bad as expected.  The party petered out by two a.m. and there was not a single fight.  The walls of our house are pretty thick, so the music was tolerable, although you could hear it at the end of the road.

I am still naive enough to believe in new years resolutions.  This year I resolve to..

a)  give up smoking

b) Lose at least one stone in weight

c) Allow myself a wee dram on only special days.

  The give up smoking is going to be the toughie!  Watch this space.

    Good luck with your resolutions, a tip on the smoking wait till it feels right to stop forcing it will not help :-) I know, I at one point had to give up ‘giving up’ LOL as it became an almost daily failure LOL. Now on 3 years ciggy free (I don’t count the cigars as 3 or 4 a year aren’t what you would call an addiction) although my best was 14 years LOL

    Thank you, Martin. I shall endeavour to take heed. Oh, and well done for giving up.
