Well I tried very hard again this year, but once again, I failed to see the New Year in...
I meant to, we had a lovely barbecue, a few drinks and some movies, but by 11pm, I was done. I did outlast the boys though. I told them at the beginning of the evening that they could stay up as late as they wanted. This was all very exciting for them, and had the unexpected effect of relaxing them so much that they fell asleep much earlier than usual.
I don't normally do New Year's Resolutions, but this year I have made two.
Firstly, I am going to lead a more organised existence, with a view to gliding swanlike around my showroom-ready house, effortlessly impressing friends and family alike with my homemaking skills.
And secondly, I have promised myself I will grow the most marvellous fruit and vegetables, in the most fabulous garden beds, thereby becoming an object of envy and admiration amongst friends, family and fellow vegetable bloggers.
On that note, Happy New Year everyone!
