    Another year older and new one just begun.....

    Just been listening to the radio and my old fave John Lennons Xmas song and it got me thinking. What have I done?
    1) A new baby girl for me and my lovely wife to add to the 3 girls we allready have! Knackered most of the time but happy
    2) Found 2 really good friends - Thanks Stuart & Claire
    3) Now own a Harley Davidson Heritage Softail thus achieving a lifelong dream

    And next year?
    1) Be more tollerant of others
    2) Tell my kids I love them at least once a day
    3) Be greatfull every day for the small things coz thats what counts

    Now over to you.... What have you done???

    Thought provoking stuff!!

    2008
    1. A brand-spanking new Baby D.
    2. Fairly big promotion, but sadly not a good year to have lots of people.
    3. Maximised blood donations.
    4. Finally fitted the new en-suite bathroom, and decorated upstairs.
    5. Finally tiled the kitchen, utility, and downstairs cloaks.
    6. Managed to get away more than ever.
    7. Watched Baby D blossom into Jnr D.
    8. Finally paid the milk bill - so Milky can eat this Christmas.
    9. Try to make a positive difference to as many people as possible.

    2009
    1. Spend as much time as possible with my children?
    2. Start platelet donations, subject to being suitable following testing?
    3. Wash the car more?
    4. Walk the dog more - even if I have to drag it out of the house!!
    5. Try to make bigger differences to more people?

    I wouldn't give away all your crockery, if I were you. You may need the odd side-plate for dinner parties and stuff.
