A New decade – New (or perhaps not!) Resolutions?!


I have never found it terribly easy getting back into the swing of work after a break and this post Christmas one is no exception. I have caught up on e mails and essential elements of administration before going into town to replenish the empty fridge. Thank God for Marks and Spencers….. and their ever full shelves of low fat food. As I write it is snowing in Windosr and from the sight of the skies from my study there is plenty more where that came from!

A new year and decade…. 2009 was quite a year for me but it hasnt inhibited my desire for new resolutions! So – have a laugh at my expense and follow the strength of my resolve as I kiss and tell ( but only ten – OK?)

In 2010 I resolve myself to:

  1. Sleep more
  2. Learn a foriegn language – probably French
  3. To be kinder to animals and especially Cats
  4. To be more careful with language
  5. To write more
  6. To cook more
  7. To buy less books
  8. To make more bread
  9. To stop picking my finger nails
  10. To listen to more Bach

There are more but thats a start….. what about yours??

  1. Dear James, I would like to encourage 2 coach loads of folk, from St Marys Temple Balsall, to visit Windsor Castle sometime during 2010 and to be guided by a Canon. Would you have any suggestions please. Cliff

    I gave up making resoltions 25 years ago when Christopher, aged 7, stood up in an assembly on the Chinese New Year and said ‘my mum makes the same resolution each year – to lose weight. As you can see she doesn’t stick to it! I love him really and he is now 32!
