Don’t drag me into this!

New Year’s Resolutions

by ratty

Well, how did you get on ?

For my part, I gave up smoking.

I gave up smoking for 29 long, wife-shouting-at, cat-kicking, ripping-the-paper-off-the-wall, hours.

I thought 29 hours was quite enough, and I’m happy with my achievement.

However, I am in awe of a person with a steelier resolve.
