Resolutions I should have made
Shave your legs.
I just don’t do it anymore, perhaps its a winter thing, a primal way of keeping warm under threadbare leggings. It’s not really is it? It’s I can’t be bothered, after the day, after the cooking and cleaning (repressed 50’s housewife style) and the rest who can be arsed to start preening? I most definitely should be having a bath to relax and preen, recharge, refresh- and I do, only it involves a bath pillow and an accidental nap waking when the water has gone cold.
Cut the caffeine.
No chance, that would involve finding an equally satisfying morning bev and they don’t exist. I’m a huge fan of the herbal tea and proud owner of an extensive collection, but no one really want to wake up to a mug of fennel flavoured water do they?
Pah, if there’s anything more ‘don’t try this at home’ than a curious ten month old sniffing around a weighted electronic steam powered heat source please let me know. Aah ha! I will do it at the weekend when daddy is home, but then what will we wear all week? As for evenings see #1.
Eat more bacon.
I’ve really slacked off on the bacon this year, I think may be because the entire house smells like a greasy spoon after cooking it and the sense of urgency to eat breakfast in some kind of wrestling style tag team on weekends to get it out of the way rather than leisurely brunch together and review the weeks events. No one wants cold bacon, on their own.
I walk most places, I have access to the car everyday but I like to walk and I’m a big believer in the outdoors. Most of the time if I have somewhere to be I’m late arriving because, y’know, the baby slept late/needed changing/ate a tissue or whatever. Even when I know I’m going to be late I take the pushchair and have at times ended up running (passed the car) in order to get to my destination on time. Why not get in the car? It’s existence doesn’t usually occur to me until I’m half way there and half way late.
Make more of an effort.
This I’ve been saying periodically for the last ten years. It means to start thinking about how you look and generally putting a bit of thought into it, actually listening to Gok, and Trinny making the most of my big feet and endless limbs. Wearing make up, styling hair, buying a new pair of leggings. Truth is I’ll always be a bare faced hoodie wearing type, what can I say?
