Central Otago Mirror - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

I never make New Year’s res­o­lu­tions.

It feels like set­ting your­self up for fail­ure.

The idea of mak­ing a prom­ise to my­self be­cause it is a spe­cific day of the year just seems wrong to me.

Hav­ing said that, I do make res­o­lu­tions.

They are usu­ally mo­ti­vated by the need to do or change some­thing and are mostly well thought through and com­mit­ted to.

I did make a big prom­ise one New Year’s Day on the bank above Lake Hayes when I mar­ried my hus­band. That was very wor­thy and I’m pleased to say is go­ing very well.

Any­way it is dif­fi­cult to come up with any ideas for res­o­lu­tions when all I can think about is Thai green curry. I’ve just had a lovely big bowl and sat­is­fied a crav­ing I’ve been car­ry­ing around for sev­eral weeks. Yum.

Maybe that will be my res­o­lu­tion for 2017. More Thai green curry. I’ll drink to that.
