As most of you will now know, I've always been very honest about having a rough time, especially recently.
And sadly, Christmas simply never even happened in my parent's house this year! - and so?.......

My first and foremost Resolution is to get myself a Passport - even if I never use it? - it will still be a precious symbol to me of my ongoing independence and freedom, regardless of my actual lack of mobility and disabilities through OsteoArthritis.

And my second Resolution is to have a full-blown, magical, Jingle-Bell-Ringing-Choir-Boy-Singing-Brass-Band-Playing-Tiddly-Om-Pom-Pom-Christmas!!! - all on my own terms and in my own way, next year instead!.......x
And I am getting all excited over the thought of Father Christmas coming already?!?!?!? - HA HA HA HA HA!!! - LOL!!! :o>

And my third Resolution is to try and get back to my baking again!..... ♫...if the fates allow...♫ .....and very top of my list might just be? - a very LARGE LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE?!?!?! - for a certain and very special Kangaroo!.....x

You might consider taking Christmas-in-a-Suitcase with you somewhere on that passport, Suzy! Or at least a trunk. Lights, candles, a few deco's, some music...depending on where you go, you might be able to find a tiny tree in the place you end up. And good food can be found anywhere.

I don't usually make resolutions, as so often resolutions, like engagements, are made to be broken.
But I'll make an exception because I think if I post it here it might just stick.

1. Get down to 78 kg, even 77 if poss in the course of the year. That's only 4 or 5 kg.
2. Do one's physiotherapy exercises and WALK MORE.
3. Get back into a regular study plan.
4. Eat lots of fish.

They sound brilliant Resolutions, Orinoco? - not least because they all sound quite achievable too, so I reckon that you are in for a very happy and successful year already!

'Christmas-in-a-suitcase' does sound pretty darn perfect to me!

But to be honest? - just a warm and peaceful atmosphere in gentle and easy company, a few nice foodie treaties and a lovely big mug of tea would make my day complete! - Ohhh, that? and Father Roo-Mas coming by one horse open sleigh to personally deliver boxes and boxes and boxes of Milk Chocolate Brazils.....of course! :o>

I've got an open sleigh. But the horse, well I'm afraid that it'll have to be a one-legged horse, on an open sleigh. Best I could do? x

never take an ex who puts you on drugs no matter how hot her innocent butt and her innocent and eloquent way of speaking are, yes its nice her upper clase behave but the buck stops rolling here... you know life is too short another day high today, i have to say good bye.

thats mine, also i hope for world peace and no1 gets cheated by fake appartment traders.

anyway i hope that the war ends, that no1 in africa has to suffer hunger and that and no1 ever has a disagreement ever again.. i hope we can all live happy like high fish in the see anyway... i will honestly say i will never take her again, drugs are no good and as one turkish wise man ones said: Friends dont give you drugs and those who give you drugs are not you friends... yes im talkig to you im divorcing you its all over now!!!!!

anyway there is another thing, i want to make every turkish kebab shop owner see the kebab song by djalili...

Tough times, hey white?......well then here's to the New Year then!.....x

Are we sure White is off the substances? Or is he just heavily into the non sequitur as an art form?

Who knows? but I do wish him, or even her? the very best that they are hoping for in 2013 anyway.

The thing about New Year's resolutions is that I almost never keep them. So this year I've decided to do something I can definitely stick to and that'll hopefully do some good: move my money to a bank that has some proper integrity and ethics, and which treats me like a proper human being (unlike RBS)! Check out www.moveyourmoney.org.uk - they have a whole guide to what other options are out there; and look at their blog on making moving your money your new year's resolution - http://www.moveyourmoney.org.uk/blog/resolutions

What a very good Resolution, Gavin!
I have also been toying with a financial idea recently?.....http://www.lendwithcare.org/

I saw something very interesting in my Co-Op Members Newsletter earlier in the year, about a revolutionary new scheme run by CARE International UK - where you can commit to directly investing small sums of money as short-term loans to someone in a third world country, who is attempting to turn things around, and improve their own, and their families' lives for the better.

It may be towards Farming and Animal Rearing, setting up a Market Stall or a Village Shop, Computer Classes, becoming a Beekeeper, Butcher, or Baker, maybe running a Cafe, or a Workshop. And it involves quite small investments too? - from just 15 up to the full amount that they may need, which even I, on a somewhat limited budget could occasionally afford to do - plus it is far more personal and accountable than just sending a donation cheque to a Charity, and then having to trust in them to disperse the money as you would wish them to do. 100% of the money that you lend goes to support the actual entrepreneur that you, as the lender, have selected to invest in.

I have no family except my parents now, and sadly no children of my own - and yet I like to feel that as I pass through this World, I might still be able to contribute towards making it a much better and nicer place for all of us to live in. And so I have just registered, and I am now considering all of the profiles online to decide exactly where, and with whom, I shall choose to make my first investment - in their bright and exciting new future.....x
