My New Year’s Resolution – that I’ll get to in February (maybe)

Ok, it’s the start of a new year and I’m sure that a lot of us have made all sorts of resolutions a few weeks ago. Now that we have passed the middle of January (January is always the shortest month of the year for me – to my mind it whizzes by so quickly and February appears out of nowhere), many of those resolutions and goals have been dropped and we are possibly back to square one. I decided that since January is such a short month that I would just enjoy it, take the time to set my goals and get started somewhere around February 1st (although, yes I know, technically February is shorter than January!). Since we are in the middle of a searingly hot summer here in Brisbane, Australia I don’t see the need to push myself too much – I’ll potter around in my air-conditioned office, concentrating on completing the work tasks we set last November. I’m sure when we did our planning we forgot how short January really is, because to achieve everything we put on our January to-do list we’d need a 60 day month! Oh well.

January seems so short, one minute you are relaxing on the beach thinking about what you should accomplish this year and the next thing you know it's nearly February, that's why I leave New Years resolutions till 1st February.
