Ring out the Old, Ring in....

This Evening - Part One: Leave work on time, quick dash to the supermarket to buy salad and other DRTs (Delicious Raw Things), create healthy yet tasty salad for dinner, washed down with herbal tea. Fill in 2008 diary, including long list of colour-coded resolutions which will not only make me a better person but also change my life forever. Schedule appointments in said diary for all regular tasks such as laundry, as recommended by the best time-management books. Am surprised to see it's still only 9:30 p.m. This Evening - Part Two: Eat 15 fig rolls straight from the packet while lying, with the cat, under my dressing gown on the sofa, drinking builder-strength tea and watching "The All-Time Top Moments of Reality TV" presented by a large-breasted Swedish woman on TF6. Realise have already "missed" an appointment with the washing machine. Try and reschedule for tomorrow morning, using wrong colour pen. Can't find phone charger. Have another fig roll. Happy New Year!!!

Set reasonable goals, dear friend:

"arrange fig rolls on decorative plate"

"consume more citrus with my vodka"

Happy New Year!
