A new day. A new year. A new blog. Happy New Year. I'm new to this so please be patient.
I am not sure why I have decided to start a blog. I do not yet know how it will all work out. My guess is it will provide a snapshot of my life (wow exciting eh?). I could be bored by 4th January and you may never hear from me again. I could find an addiction and record almost every single passing moment of my existence. I hope that if anyone reads this it provides them with some laughs, maybe some inspiration.
So what are my goals for 2011? Who knows. Do I need any? They are unlikely to be realistic and therefore likely to remain unfulfilled. I want to win the lotto and move somewhere hot. Don't we all? Right now all I know is my life is dull. Predictable. Mundane. I need something new. The only person that can do anything about it is me.
When the clock struck midnight I had an horrific thought. I am 40 THIS year. They say life begins. Well I guess on 6th April this year I will find out. I won't hold my breath.
As I write this the day is breaking and the world (or the UK at least) is waking up to 2011. Many with sore heads I assume. I was up at 7.30am. It is a typical day in the north east of England. Grey and damp. That could almost be a snapshot of the weather at any time of the year.
One thing I need to do is diet. In 2009 I lost over 60 pounds and felt great. The pounds have slowly made their way back. Christmas excesses certainly don't help. A balanced diet and excercise should do the trick. I did it two years ago. I know I can do it again.
So, what of today. Well, like the rest of the year I'm not sure what to expect. Some friends are heading out for some celebratory New Year's Day beers. The pubs tend to be crowded. They lack appeal when they are like that.
I will sign off my first blog entry with the hope it won't be the last and wish you all the very best in 2011.
