Milk’s reckless 2011

31 Dec

So, what has 2010 taught me? That I can be far  too conversative (little c, little c)  a bit staid, careful, fearful. That I have experimented far too little and worried far too much.  That you really should stop once in a while and really take things in. That meticulous planning isn’t always the best way, and that sometimes,  just sometimes it’s better to lie down with no clothes on and wait for something to happen.  With that in mind here are my new year’s resolutions for 2011…

1) drive the shopping trolley recklessly in busy supermarkets, laughing in the face of anyone that dares to tut loudly

2) make it a mission to embarrass my kids frequently with my out-of-time dancing.

3) paint my nails a colour that’s way too young for me.

4) say “*ck it” more often, and really mean it (but not in front of the kids, obviously).

5) have totally ill-advised and nutritionally empty breakfasts – coffee and a cigarette leftover chocolate cake.

6) wear shorter skirts, naughtily short, and impossibly high heels I can’t walk a step in.

7) wear more eyeliner – in hardcore ’80s colours (preferably while rocking enormous shoulder pads).

8 ) take up yoga – and pass loud, joyous wind while doing it.

9) have more arguments – passionate, raging arguments with overly-dramatic reconciliations.

10) do much, much more public snogging.

Reckless? Well it’s best to start small…

Happy New Year everyone!  Thanks to everyone who’s stuck with me.

    Anyone reading this who didn’t follow you before will be following next year just to see the pictures & hear the stroies of all those things. I suspect there may be some falling down in 2011! 😉

    THanks for the fun this year!

    I’ve loved reading you this year and can’t wait to stick with you in 2011.

    (p.s. I often don’t comment here because I feel anything I have to say is usually a bit redundant by the time I’ve got here – several days after you posted and loads of very clever and witty people have already commented!).

    What an awesome list! Number 8 made me laugh out loud – nothing more therapeutic than passing loud, joyous wind!! Hehehe!

    I’m a brand new reader (thanks Wanderlust!) and will be following with anticipation of some entertaining antics! Happy 2011!

    I am particularly impressed by the public snogging resolution, and do hope Mr Milk’s on side with it. (It’s me, off Travels with a Nine Year Old, btw: I’ve just left and the old identity behind.) What an outstanding set of New Year’s resolutions.

    And, bout swearing in front of the kids, provided you tell them appropriate and inappropriate contexts for such language usage, they’ll never do it at school or nursery.

      Who said anything about Mr Milk? he he, only kidding, he’ll be stoked!
      I’ll take that advice re swearing from you as someone whose parenting i admire…


I'm all about the debate. Would love to hear what you think.
