Greetings one and all...
I trust that you all had a wonderful Christmas and that most of you managed to dodge the battery of bugs that were spreading themselves about .. and for those of you who succumbed to the variety of viruses on offer this year .. my utmost sympathy!
I am still cultivating a bark and a voice not dissimilar to Marianne Faithful when she sang Broken English.. and it has nothing to do with a life of debauchery or 20 Woodbine's a day.. just the remnants of my flu bug .. which .. thanks to the tender care of Nurse Florence .. had mostly disappeared just before the festive day!
I have .. however been left with a bad case of lethargy and chronic... sludginess.. which is the only way I can describe this leaden feeling I wake with each day.. finding it hard to lift my hand to the chocolate box or Christmas cake that is still going strong!
I am longing for some normality, a routine.. a different rhythm to this current one..of flopping around and consuming far too much in the sugar department..
SO it is with this in mind that I am going to start my detox and general self improvement plan just as soon as this next bout of merry making has passed..
This will involve abstaining from all things pleasurable.. this includes.. chocolate, biscuits, cakes, sweets of any shape or size... bread.. accompanied by a lot of putting one foot in front of the other ..i.e Exercise!
This is just one of my growing list of New Year Resolutions... that I seem to remember is the same as last year's and the one before and the one before that!
If I had received a gift of willpower for Christmas then there would be little problem in keeping these good intentions.. so I am relying on my weak willpower and the constant reminder when I look in the mirror that I look like Hattie Jacques to spur me on to my goal this coming year.
I sincerely hope that you realise your dreams and goals and aspirations for 2009 and you all find peace of mind and happiness in abundance for this year to come..
and on that note.. I would like to wish you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
