New Year Resolutions

I don't often make New Year Resolutions....so taking the lead from Simple Lovely's lovely blog I have a few things I will try to do more of and a few things I'll try to do less of - oh and one formal resolution!

OK, lets start with the resolution - that one is to give up coca cola, diet coke, coke zero and to limit my intake of any other fizzy drinks full of sugar. I've moved over to sparkling water at work/home and soda water and lime when in the pub.

The things I'd like to do more of include: run; knit & craft; see friends; eat fruit & veg; DIY to get my house into shape; read more books; watch more films at the DCA cinema; hill-walking; raise more money so this is built in Dundee (that's a work thing but also something that will be amazing for Dundee); volunteer with the National Trust Conservation Volunteers.....

The things I'd like to do less of include: eating sugar/cakes/sweets; getting stressed;  buying clothes (I have many as my drawers will suggest - of course - this didn't last long as I managed to buy 2 tops yesterday - but that's it for a while!).

Must share this with you! A friend from work sent it to me and it's fab. We've been spending quite a lot of time thinking about Scotland's design heritage in recent weeks and Pringle is one of the best - 195 years of Pringle being celebrated in this cheeky little YouTube video....

Some great lists Di! I really need to give up the diet pepsi, but can't seem to manage it. Good Luck to you! Thanks for the link to the cute video too!

I am laughing out loud at that video (and my family is looking at me like I've lost it!)... thanks for posting it!! Good for you about giving up pop! You probably got tired of my preaching about it :) I drink Pelligrino with lime or lemon when I want the fizz, or Kombucha. I think you're justified in buying clothes in January with such good sales! I hope everything else falls into place. I love seeing what you knit and craft!

Doing more of things, or less of something else- such relative measurements,and one may end up never being satisfied. But my resolution is getting fit. Like everyone else on the New Year's party. Explanation: we all hit 40 this year...
