Sunday, 1 January 2012

I'm not considering this to be an auspicious start to the new year. Huh.

I'd like to get a new tattoo this year. I still want my Kodama and a cat. I shall also strive to be more organised and trying to be healthier. I did so well last year and the last few months of the year it all went downhill. I need to look after myself better than I have been.
I need to read more too. I read really quickly and I got a lot of reading done on my commute back and forth to work but now that I drive I've lost that bit of reading time. I have a pile of books to read, for the first time ever. So less time on the laptop and more time reading.

I'd also like to be on a quiz show, like Pointless. I love Pointless.
Happy new year my little dumplings. I hope you all have a wonderful 2012.
