New Years Resolutions

We chatted to the kids about New Years Resolutions and what they were all about. How easy it is to say you will do something and how easy it is to forget all about it a few weeks later. We went around the table and all said what we were going to try to do better.

Sian decided she wasn't going to bite her nails anymore (We didn't know she did?!)

Rhiannon is going to try to keep her room tidy (a big thing for her as usually you can't see her carpet for toys and clothes)

Gareth seemed confused by the whole idea and couldn't think of anything other than suggesting he would try to get onto a new level on his computer game!

Byron and myself made the typical resolutions about eating a little healthier especially about trying to eat more fresh fruit, salad and veggies.

My weight in particular has crept up over the last two years since we arrived in Oz. Too many good BBQs I guess. I get reminded about how much my body shape has changed at birthday and Christmas when friends and families send me gifts of clothes in size 8-10 and "petite". I haven't been that for a long while now and am much more a comfortable 12! So my New Years resolution for 2008 is not to gain anymore weight and maybe drop to a 10 so I can start wearing all those lovely clothes that are sitting unused in the back of the wardrobe!
