Drink less on work days. Continue to observe the axiom Eight hours from bottle to throttle even though I no longer aspire to be an airplane pilot.

I'm finding all these quite inspiring [Smile] If anyone needs a restart I'd say, here am I with my cheerleader outfit on bouncing around yelling, "Do it! Dooooo it!"

Cattyish, possibly giving people disturbing mental images, but encouraging ones.

To spend at least two hours every Saturday morning writing. I spent six months last year planning a novel, but I didn't write a word. This year, I intend to get it written.

To try and not let my lack of self worth and confidence hold me back. I have the opportunity of a fresh start here in Finland and I need to make the most of it.

To pray more often.

To make time to play boardgames with my wife more often. We're both gamer geeks, yet we've done precious little gaming since I started my Finnish language and integration courses over a year ago.

Re-arrange the house so I have an easy to close off room where I work on private papers (year end finances, book I'm writing, etc). That would make it less disruptive to -

Invite people for a meal, practice new recipes on them, learn how to cook a bit, take time to enjoy their company.

Get out and see the world! Both local and across borders; why am I sitting at home surfing so much?

Take the time and effort to give this body the care that will result in sparkling health - physical and emotional. (Exercise, eat right, etc).

Be more responsive to whatever I think God wants me doing. If it's really God's idea, it is for my benefit, not to exploit me for someone else only.

My resolution this year is to be a better neighbour, starting with doing the rounds in prayer each day.

Christ Jesus came to be Immanuel, not a manual.
