Default Your New Year Resolutions

So what do you plan to change in your lives, guys and girls. Other than being alot more careful with my money, I don't envisage any major changes in the Mentalist household.

You could be more careful?

The usual things - lose a few kilos, be more active, more organised and focused. Take a couple of holidays. Take more photographs. I have set myself various work-related targets.

Also, to stop this idiot kitten from climbing up my legs as it hurts.


And to continue not smoking. I have up on 23rd December 2012 and over the past year I have had about 30 cigarettes in total. I reckon that's good going and am happy to stick with just having the odd one or two from time to time. Thanks to the kind mates who allow me to steal their fags.

To make a bit more time for myself and get my work life balance back to normal, stop working weekends and be out of work at 8 at the latest. Get back in the gym and start looking after myself better.

to spend more time with my parents
and even more time with the family

I am sure this thread was exactly the same last year..............

My resolution is to eat something before going out getting pissed and smoking tabs. Drinking is not the enemy, the hangovers are.

Happy New Year
