Spring Resolutions

Can you have Spring resolutions as opposed to the New Year versions? Yeah, I don't see why not, do you? So, for someone who is too idle to make New Year resolutions here are my Spring 2009 - back on Caxton - Resolutions.

In this coming year I would like to:

Read four works by Dickens and four works by the Bronte brood, and for a cultural feast, AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh! Perhaps I will even tackle Brave New World and Animal Farm again.
I will learn to paint in water colours - I could always tell people that I rather like the 'primitive' style don't you know..
Lard reduction - I will continue to lose a modicum of weight, here and there, from time to time.
I will make Joe at least ONE snake and kidlee pudding during the course of the year - yuk..
I will continue to drink the medically prescribed amount of alcohol to ensure the rudest of health regardless how often the 'experts' change the goal posts and their minds - fortitude in the face of their vagaries I say!
And, I/we will take Caxton to Liverpool and London.

Well I think that will do for one year, don't you?

Hear hear, but I think I'll leave the reading to someone else.

She checks the time and realises that that is Graham - Jill will still be in the pit at this time, right?

Do Bronte before Dickens...they are all fantastic reads although Villette didn't float my boat too much. Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Shirley and Agnes Grey are very much in the shadow of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre but they shouldn't be, as they are wonderful.You're in for a treat.
