I would like to tell you that I have been skiing in Austria, cruising around the Med or sipping champagne in the south of France - but I haven't. It would also be exciting to say that I have been cold turkey-ing, trying to rid myself of one of my more revolting habits - but I haven't (I like my horrible habits anyway). I took a break from everything over the holiday and now I am a bit late in wishing you a happy new year.
My crystal balls are a little cloudy about the coming year - how exciting! I have no wish to make predictions and can only predict that this year is going to be a hell of a lot better than the last one.
My one and only resolution is going to be to seize the moment and have fun. I am too old to stop and think and certainly too old to make resolutions that I can only keep for twenty-four hours.
The Minx almanac for 2009 says that the future is going to be unpredictably and resolutely exciting. Gin anyone?
