I’m sure these dear little dogs were just about to reflect insightfully on the year that’s nearly over, and offer wise resolutions for the year that’s just beginning.
But then the sheer merriment of their party hats, and something catching their eye just out of sight, distracted them.
I’m very much the same, with nothing wise to offer. I wondered about new year’s resolutions, thought maybe I would eat more biscuits, drink more wine, get less exercise.
Then I came across something I would like to do. Get an empty jam jar, and every time something nice happens, or someone says something nice, write it down on a tiny piece of paper and pop it into the jar. Next new years eve, open it up and read them all – lots and lots of nice small things to revisit.
What d’you think?
