When I was a child, one of the highlights of Christmas morning was the anticipation of opening the latest annual that had been left by Father Christmas (my parents were always very anti using the term Santa). Would it be the latest annual from Blue Peter, or Dennis the Menace, or the Goodies? One year I even remember getting the Rolf Harris Annual – not much of a demand for that these days…
Did you make any resolutions this year? You’re going to live a more healthy lifestyle – right? Drink less, exercise more, spend more time with the family? Or perhaps you’re going to be more focussed on your career, or even get a new job?
Well we’re now into the second week of the 2015 so it’s probably appropriate to ask how are you doing with those new resolutions?
But Pete – give me a break, I’ve only just made the resolution – I haven’t achieved it yet!
So I’m sorry to tell you – you probably won’t!
