Well hello kiddies. Did we all have a lovely festive time over the last few days? I can honestly say I’ve eaten so much I don’t think I’ll need to snack again until February.
Brilliant – that’ll be me fitting into skinny jeans again then.
I’ve been trawling through the archives and have just re-read my post from last new years eve, and quite frankly, I think it’s time to evaluate this year’s resolutions before tackling next years.
You may recall:
And as for coffee… well, it’s basically my life force. And I got a shiny new espresso machine for Christmas, and have a cupboard filled with exotic coffee beans, so that’s just never going to happen. I did however, decide;
To give up starbucks. (ARGH!) Succeeded! for a while anyway. I’ve cut down. Massively. Only eggnog latte’s were my weakness this year.
To be more Spontaneous! Braved the ash cloud and ventured to visit Maxie in Vienna… created ensemble bingo… went to see a ‘Kerrang’ show (still recovering from that)… blagged my way into a considerable amount of press night parties I wasn’t invited to… stopped a publisher in the street and pimped out my book… waged a war on David Essex fans… groped George Berger while being felt up by hippies on stage at Hair… drove to my mum’s to surprise her for Mother’s Day… told Whoopi Goldberg I love her… and last but not least; GOT THE JOB.
To be more promiscuous I think the very existence of Ensemble Bingo covers this one, but in case anyone’s lost count… Trilby, The Hobbit, Forbidden Fruit, Movie Man, Almost Famous, The Proper Actor and the Little Drummer Boy. Stay tuned for the Jockey.
To go to Ireland. I’ve never been – and I’m sure one day I will marry an Irishman! Fail. Irish has been in the homeland doing panto and I didn’t make it. Will have to correct this
To cook something new every week. Managed this until April. Then I GOT THE JOB. Ah well, you win some…
To go for more walks and remember life exists outside of London. Did This! Lots! In snow, in rain, in sunshine, on beaches and around Lake Michigan.
Happy New Decade everybody! 2010 is going to be a hell of a year, full steam ahead into the teenies!
And so it was.
It’s truly been an adventure this last year, and I’m grateful to each and every person who’s been there along the way. If they read this, they know who they are, (*cough* Maxie G *splutter*) and if they don’t… well, there’s probably a good reason I haven’t told them about it.
Enjoy the rest of Twixtmas… bring on the weekend and 2011.
