Here's the first post of the year!

This New Year's Eve was the most special ever - the first spent with family - with so many of our family. That night all of us were more than a bit drunk - some on alcohol, some on pure fun. And in that happy haze, amidst the chatter and the laughter, cheered on by each other we all made resolutions - wrote them down and signed them for good measure. About a third of them are to do with weightloss, two are would be marathoners, a budding author, a wannabe swimmer and from the kids.. the promise to do well at school!

Almost a week later, everyone has gone.. Cousins, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts - back to their homes, jobs, schools. That night already seems so far away. Which is why I need to reiterate my resolutions.

Two of them stand out - Weightloss and writing. Mercifully both are things I've been doing for a long time and can be reasonably good at provided I put my mind to it - and that precisely is where the catch lies - 'Putting my mind to it'. 

And so the biggest resolution of the year for me - I will put my mind to whatever I do. You can help guys.. push me, pull me up.. keep visiting. Your presence here is a reminder of all that I've set out to do.

Wishing you all a very very happy new year.
