Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen resolutions/goals for 2007.

1. Make more of my violin lessons

2. And linking to this - achieve my Grade 1

3. Lose at least 4 stone in weight - probably a year long project

4. Make sure I eat my five a day

5. Learn something new - we're thinking at the moment about learning to fence

6. Not buy so many books - not until I've read lots more of my unread

7. Blog more - and not be so afraid to blog on things I hold strong opinions on

8. See my friends more often - after leaving Glasgow and all during the time I worked for the Conservative Party I neglected my friends. I saw some for the first time in years in 2006, this year I will do better.

9. Not spend quite so much money that I don't really have....

10. Be a bit less grumpy and impatient with people

11. Keep my desk tidy (ok, so we're getting into the realms of wishful thinking here)

12. Move a little bit faster in the morning - it really shouldn't take me over an hour to get ready

13. Think carefully about topics for Thursday Thirteens so that I don't start rambling too much by number 7.

I like #7. I am always so hesitant to really state how I feel sometimes.

Good list!
I hope that you achieve all you are hoping for!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
My TT is posted
BTW #7 is a good thing! It is good to have strong opinions.

Good luck with your resolutions/goals! #11 would be hard for me - I seem to work best with a bit of clutter. ;) Good luck with your violin lessons!

Happy TT. :)

Hehe, I also need to not be so grumpy and impatient with people, but it's HARD.

I also need to stop buying so many books. I've got a small library of books I haven't read yet.

My 13 are up.

Carmen said...

may all 13 be the case!

Good luck with all your goals! You can do them all!

i really like #7...i struggle with that blog or not to blog about your strong opinions...i say it's a blog and if people don't agree, they don't have to read it!

I'm so jealous - I've always wanted to learn violin... not enough time in life for us Renaissance Women! :) And I know what you mean about mornings - I seem to be getting slower and slower and have no idea why - used to be able to get ready for pretty much anything in 20 minutes... now there seems to be some kind of time warp in my house in the mornings! Thanks for visiting my TT! happy new year!
