New Year's Resolutions

Talking with friends tonight about New Year's Resolutions had me thinking about last years. Know I had achieved one or two but couldn't remember the others. Thankfully I documented them on here so dug around and now will answer the challenge!!!

This is my list of new year resolutions! To be documented and me held accountable!!
Not sure what order the pics will be so you'll have to work it out- out of 2 pics it won't be hard!
1. Years and years ago before my eldest granddaughter was but a twinkle in her daddy's eye (like 8 years) I bought a book which had instructions on making an interactive felt book for kids. As you can see- I've made it to D ( c is behind B and shares the holes). With my youngest granddaughter prob being the last grandchild I'm likely to have perhaps this had better be No 1 resolution!
Well........ this book no longer exists! I solved the problem by chucking it!!
2.- I want to get a 6 pack or at least a 4 pack or something vaguely resembling muscle type things on my tummy
Well...........I can use this one again for 2011!!!
3- I'm planning to do run for the kids again- providing I'm not crippled by then
YES!!!!!!! did it and still running- yaaaaahhhhh
4. house improvements- any house improvements will satisfy this resolution
Need I answer this one- evidence on here is clear!
5 I'd like to study again this year- maybe literacy or ESL or something along those lines
No- didn't have time to scratch myself this year
and that will be all for now!

So- got a few more to work on this year. I'll post new ones when I've figured out what I want to achieve.
How did anyone else go with their past resolutions?

Wedding Anniversary

Our wedding anniversary tomorrow- 37years! Such a lot has happened in that time. I look back at the time we met and think....we had no idea then that 37 years later we would be here together with 2 children and 3 grandchildren and all the other stuff in between! I feel very lucky to have had such a good life. ( that sounds a bit final doesn't it???? lol- I'm not planning on going anywhere for some time yet!)

Mulling it over

The gym, where I work, is having a 'challenge' in the new year. An 8 or 12 week challenge ( not sure which at this stage) and I'm wondering if I might join in and give it a go. I don't seem to have very good staying power with these sort of things ( mostly the eating) so it might just assist me to keep on! It involves a personal training session and a 'weigh in' and advice and look at what's been happening in the eating department for the week.

We've christened the shower ( minus screens) and it's so nice to shower at home again!!
