Resolutions

Jan 26, 2010

My last post was meant to be about this, but I got a bit carried away with the paper cranes. So here they are - twenty ten's resolutions.

1. Make 1000 paper cranes. We all know about that one. Progressing nicely, too - 160 done so far!

2. Being stoic and keeping things close to my chest worked marvellously for me last decade. I have always been someone who very much doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve, so has been easy in the past to let people say and do what they like while I maintained my "don't complain and don't explain" philosophy. There is a certain power in keeping one's mouth shut, but it just doesn't feel right for me now. I no longer want to let everyone off lightly. If I feel like screaming I'll scream, dammit! Or at the very least I'll attempt to have a bit of a whinge.....

3. Why don't we spend more time lying in the shade of trees? I think 2010 should be the year for it. I came back from our week at Woodford this year, where we spent practically the entire week outdoors, lounging around on the grass, listening to good music, and decided that there is absolutely no good reason more of our everyday living can't be spent on the grass in the shade of a tree.

4. Turning 42. Not so much a resolution as an inevitability, and it happened yesterday. I like the sound of this age. Let's hope that 42 will reveal the meaning of life, the universe and everything. Or at the very least be an interesting and productive year :)

( and thank you to everyone who left lovely comments on my last post)

Yes 42 is a good age to start speaking you piece... I left my time a bit longer so have been trying to make up - I'm sick of people with such attitude they don't care about how they make me feel... ummm that said I'm off to have a look around... have a good w/e sitting on the grass under the shade of a beautiful tree...
