    To drink more milk
    Eat less sausages
    To realise that people take life more seriously than me and accept that!
    Stop swearing so much, I'm brilliant at it!
    Practice the tuba as much as possible, I'm terrible!
    To change my mouthpiece at least twice after advice on here
    To pedal my bass to new depths
    To accept adjudicators decisions
    To realise the way for my band to improve is to work hard, not bitch and moan on here
    To perhaps realise that trying to change all of this in one year is pointless, and to enjoy my life, my way!

    To learn how to drive! That's it....hubs has said I can have a CAR!! yay! I need to drive though, living where we do, its becoming a necessity, unless I want to spend the rest of my life relying on the 3 a day bus service.

    Go to church more often
    Treat my wife and kid even better
    Pray my lungs recover so I can play the euph/bone again
    Lose some more weight (I lost 40 lbs last year, I need to lose 40 more!)

    Think about other people first

    Stay out of the hospital (15 days in the hospital last year!)

    The first one, Ill forgive you on, you were clearly under the influence or something, anyway lets never speak of it again!!

    I'm with you on the second one, i don't really do new years resolutions cos they never happen so this year mine is just to enjoy myself a little bit more than last! (and to get a new better job, but I'm not really saying this cos if I say it out loud it probably won't happen):cool:

    [pedant alert]
    Actually, it's to eat fewer sausages!
    [/pedant alert]

    I don't make new years resolutions because I always break them within the first week or less so perhaps I should have a resolution not to make resolutions so I can break that within the first week, but that would be too late to make a new year's resolution...:dunno

    Haven't decided yet. But I did complete my last years resolutions (the first time I've ever stuck to them). I climbed the 3 peaks Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Ben Nevis and have lost 2 stone in weight. As I am now a bit fitter I may train for the local half marathon which I last did about 15 years ago (depends how the knees hold up with my advancing age)

    To lose at least 4 stone.

    To try and relearn how to double and triple tongue effectively. Haven't really been able to for any sustained number of bars since I was in my twenties.

    To catch a 30lb plus salmon (still waiting)

    To stop worrying about the things in life that I can't change.

    1) Lose at least 3 stone in weight.
    2) Drastically cut down lager consumption.
    3) Take loads of daily exercise.
    4) Stop being a cynical grumpy old b*st*rd.
    5) Try and consider other folks point of view.

    In fact, exactly the same as last year, and the year before, and the year before that, and......................etc. etc. etc.

    Bit of the old reverse psychology needed this year I fancy.

    Last year I vowed to eat and drink less in order to shed a little excess weight, and boy did that not, this year I'm gonna stuff myself stupid on anything that aint fastened down or doesn't have a pulse any more.

    There, lets see how well we do with that one.
