Some Wooly New Years Resolutions

Just before Christmas Penny at Alexander Residence wrote a brilliant post all about the reality behind some of the tweets she sends. It was honest and funny and I defy any of you not to nod in understanding with at least one of them. You can read it here.

In the same post she also challenges me to a 'bleat' - and no it's not about dressing up as a sheep and having a dual at dawn. Basically a 'bleat' is a post that's too long for twitter but not enough for a full on blog post. Great concept, but the only problem is as soon as I get started on a rant about something it usually ends up as a book rather than a bleat. So I decided to write out my New Years Resolution list for you instead:

1. Stop eating the childrens selection boxes for breakfast.

2. Don't walk past the pile of clean clothes on the stairs that have been there for 3 days and are going to end up thrown all over the house unless I actually bend down and carry them somewhere.

3. Don't argue with my OH before 10am (tough one).

4. Answer the phone when it rings instead of inspecting the number, wondering who it is, debating whether or not to answer and then missing the call.

5. Stop getting the kids into their pjs at 5pm in the hope that it will bring bedtime closer. It won't.

I think that's enough for the moment, I don't want to wear myself out before i even start...Baaaaa.

  What about you? Any resolutions made or broken this year?


  1. I do the kid, PJ thing. I have stopped because it just means they get their PJs dirty and I have to change them again...

    Take good care.

  2. I think kid cereal is up there with 40 diet cokes! Have you ever thought of teaching them to sleep in their clothes? That's what we often do when there's no night nanny. Mama is lazy. Or urinating. One of the two. x

  3. I used to do the 5pm pyjama trick with mine! It didn't matter how many times it failed, I still kept trying ... Now I'm getting old, I do the same thing with myself.

  4. I haven't made a single resolution! And not 'cause I don't need to do a bunch of stuff better. I have been just so happy to be done with 2010.
    Hmm.. I will have to come up with some. I do really like the laundry one.
    I am still thinking about my five reasons I love my kids. I am only up to three. hee hee. Just kidding.
    Happy New Year!

  5. Hello lovely!
    I reckon that's sort of bleating, definitely got to know a bit more about the Kate Takes 5 household now ;)
    Do I detect a slight hint of uncommitment, a slight whiff of unresoluteness about this list though? Will you be doing a progress update? Ha ha. Good Luck! Can relate to all of these :)
