Wishing you all the best for a great 2013. Only three resolutions this year (I'm a believer in such things): 1) no chocolate for the month of January - nearly caved a few days ago and was saved by the fact that the last of the orange chocolate segments in the fridge had been eaten by Finn who has made no such resolution as she still has her waistline 2) NO MORE LOTTERY TICKETS - I announced this at the customer service desk of Tesco after being told my last two tickets had won me naught. People around me cheered and jeered, the manager looked cross (do they get a commission?) and I was heard to quote that I call it a tax on the poor and a friend of mine calls it a tax on the stupid 3) a walk every day - little or long - along with Chi Gong and yoga stretches. Patchy to date but nonetheless in evidence which is a good start. Good luck all of you with your own resolutions if you have them. Sure why not, test of character and all that. A radio dj announced proudly he had managed to get through the day so far without a bag of crisps (potato chips for you North Americans)and you had to feel for him. Meanwhile, here's a pic of me at the Gateway of India in Mumbai (formerly Bonmbay)not long after my 60th birthday last month. I was in India for three weeks over November/December and arrived back on the 17th in time to hurl myself into Christmas. More about that anon.
