So, lets get back to that list of things that I might want to do during the year, but which I am positively not resolving to do in 2009.
- I will not spend a whole year reading (and re-reading) Ngaio Marsh novels to the exclusion of all else
- Continue our experiments in cooking (this has really been working quite well) carried forward
- Continue the efforts to save lots o’ cash (has also been working quite well, except for that minor art-buying hiccough – and the new small art-buying hiccough which is about to occur next week)
- Keep up the gym thing (min 3 days a week) carried forward
- Leave the office at least once per day (even if only for 5 minutes) and take a mental health day every once in a while. I have taken Dishy Boss’s excellent lead and blocked out my calendar every day for lunch, because I work with the sort of morons who book meetings during lunchtime.
- Go on some sort of honeymoon! (or at least a faux wedding night)
- Have more adventures, of all sorts. carried forward
- Do not spend every evening zonked out in front of the computer and not engaging with what I am mindlessly scrolling/clicking through
- Use Gertrude the macbook for more than browsing (ie refamiliarise myself with the mac os)
- Blog moar carried forward
- Use “splendid” and “neat” a whole lot more in conversation (and maybe even “smashing” or “keen”). “Cool” and “awesome” becoming somewhat tired, I think. carried forward
- Consolidate and organise the now even more enormous itunes libraries carried forward
- Do not promise to send emails within a certain time frame because I invariably will not do so (particular apologies to Harriet and my Lesbian Lover)
I’m sure there were more, I just forget what they are, when I remember I will add.
- Italian lessons (see comments)
- Throw out every horrible piece of white or beige granny underwear that I own. This follows on from “and she just wore these horrible bras all the time…” (scroll down), despite buying a whole lot of new stuff, I keep reverting to the ghastly – I figure if they aren’t there, I won’t be able to wear them.
Again, I am sure there will be more additions.
