After a hiatus of a decade or so of cynicism, Prudence started making resolutions about five years ago. These tended to be quite private, and momentous, if general: to be nicer to oneself, not to be judgmental and cynical, surround oneself with inspirational people, and so on.
The idea was that successive years would build on their predecessors. Prudence is a much better person for the effort, having conquered demons small and large.
For 2012, a change in approach.
1. Learn to crochet
2. Learn to prune the fruit trees so they fruit more, rather than less
3. Find a decent (read grown-up) hairdresser
4. Pay off at least one credit card
5. Find a properly waterproof mascara
Progress reports as and when.
