So, this is just a text-only post. Rubbish I know but normal service will resume shortly.
In the meantime, here's my New Years Resolutions. I figure if I write them down somewhere I'm much more likely to stick to them. What are all yours?
- Speak less, listen more. I come from a long line of women-folk motor-mouths and a week in a bungalow with them over christmas reminded me how much I don't want to end up like that. So I'm resolved to start trying now, with the hope that by the time mid-life hits, when this nefarious disease starts to seriously raise it's head, I'll be prepared.
- Not take on too much. I'm really bad for not being able to say no, to dinner invites, parties, craft projects, you name it. Invariably these things mount up and I end up trying to be in half a dozen places at once or doing 5 things at the same time and I always end up stressed and upset. Well no more!
- Get myself out of my overdraft. After not being able to work last summer due to work placements, I'm now severely into my overdraft. It's interest-free and so not that big a deal but Andrew and I want to start saving for a flat deposit now he's got a job and so having a giant hole of an overdraft round my neck isn't a good place to start. I estimate if I'm sensible and make a budget (and stick to it!) I should be out of it by the summer, fingers crossed.
