    Are you one of those people who think a new year's resolution is a just fad that goes in one year and out the other, or are you one of those other people who are more committed to drinking, eating or smoking less?

    MrsZee hasn't yet told me what mine new year's resolutions are, although I'm hoping she might extend Saturday night specials to two or three more nights of the week.:)
    Last year she stood before me on new year's eve morning and announced 'Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year. Everything that has happened this last year and before midnight tonight will be completely forgotten'

    Funny that, because, despite what she said, she still won't leave me and her mother in the same room together.:Meh

    So, are you intending to refrain from a bad thing and commit to a good thing next year, or are you just going to carry on regardless and bugger the consequences? :Watching

    I will eat more chocolate, drink more and eat more. Those habits have been progressive over the years anyway, so I don´t expect next year to be an exception. Zaros will cut his intake though, as we can´t have a whole family overdrinking and overeating, can we?

    'Progressive' is a rather curious term.:Wideyed

    Odd that you should innocently choose that with reference to yourself.o_O

    Now, what was it you once said about relationships? :confused:

    Oh I remember, they begin with the phrase 'Don't ever change, I love you just the way you are'

    And then they gradually progress to 'You've got to change'

    And before too long 'progress' eventually runs everything aground with 'You've changed' :Meh

    I've never actually found the need to utter those words but, in truth, you have changed. In a Kafkaesque sort of way.:Wacky

    You know, I've actually lost count of the number of times I've tried to discuss the importance of those three special little words with MrsZee...

    It's a simple phrase once perfected....'I love you'.....and it means so, so much.

    Because something has inevitably been lost in translation, she thinks the three special little words that mean so much to her are '**** off idiot':Facepalm

    I'm not a smart man, but I know what love is.

    And life, for me, is a box of Liqueurs.:Joyful

    It was to never tell anyone what the resolution was.

    My OH and I don't really make new year's resolutions, but we do set goals for the year. Our goals for 2018 are:

    1. My OH to pass her management course at work.
    2. Me to get Holly into more competitions and hopefully win one, or if not then just improve on what we have achieved this year.
    3. Me to progress with being a training instructor, getting more experience etc.
    4. There is another goal that we have. Not going to disclose on here yet, but will let you know if we achieve it.

    Well done you! I gave them up nearly 3 years ago and it was the hardest thing I've ever done.
