    Ever made a promise you will never keep? Erm, I've just bought a bargain collection of CDs of the complete Der Ring des Nibelungen (Richard Wagner) performed by the Badische Staatskapelle (Gunter Neuhold) on eBay. I would like to try and get through the 15 or 16 hours of the music in one go but I know I never will. Anything you have committed to and never started or completed?

    I have all 5 Seasons of 24 on DVD. Have seen half of 1, all of 2, none of 3, half of 4 and all of 5. I really would like to watch them all from the beginning but I think sleep may very well take over at some point.

    COMPLETELY tidying my room.

    Christmas Shopping. I promised myself it'd all be done last monday.. that went to tuesday.. then today.. (just don't go there today :mad: lol!) So now it's last minute around the shops that are open on a sunday tomorrow and a bit of DIY over the next few days I think! :rolleyes:

    I tend to rationalise this kind of commitment to self.

    Things I will do this week - these will definitely happen. Example - Christmas cards will be sent by Tuesday.

    Things I'll do before I'm fifty - these things will happen, but I'm less sure about the timescale. Example - I will become the conductor of a brass band.

    Things I'll do before I'm seventy five - these things will not happen. Example - I'm going to run the London Marathon...

    I kind of feel as though I should have an onslaught on some of my DVD sets; the 9-disc extended special edition set of Lord of the Rings, for instance. I've also (shamefully) never listened to my 3 CD set of La Nozze di Figaro from start to finish. I will, though, eventually....:rolleyes:
  7. I've been trying to give up drinking irn bru for ages, but I'm hoping one day it actually happens as its not good for my weight or my teeth!!!
