Goings and comings

Looking back over the year just gone and making resolutions is, it seems the thing to do.

Prudence's year has followed typical form and involved a moving of house and a changing of job.

It has also involved:
  • the acquisition of a cat (good);
  • the breaking of a staggering number of wine glasses (embarrassing);
  • a broken resolution to learn Italian (ah, well);
  • the nurturing of an olive tree that once more did not bear fruit (death row, shall try a native finger lime);
  • varying rates of economy with the truth (also known as good manners);
  • varying degrees of success with sewing and other crafty projects (if at first you don't succeed...);
  • the growing out of a truly ugly haircut (painful, indeed);
  • three very small lotto wins (just enough to buy another ticket);
  • complete success in avoiding quiz nights (invitations no longer coming in); and
  • the making of new and very precious friendships (BSC Perth, that's you).
So, for 2011

(and these are not resolutions, that process will only end in tears)
  • grow a cut flower garden;
  • try not to break so many wine glasses; and
  • learn to sew button holes.
There - that ought to be doable.
