Take a look through these rose-tinted specs of mine
Pull up a chair and have a cup of tea. It's time to think about the type of year we want to have.
I've been inspired by Reluctant, who was inspired by Under the Mad Hat. They have each posted a list of first line of first posts from each month of 2008. Being a looking where I'm going sort of woman, I thought I'd write up my preferred list of first lines for the next 12 months...
February; I've managed a month of doing ALL my new year resolutions - of course, it's easy if you just stay focused.
March; What a drag - I've dropped a dress size and just HAVE to go shopping for clothes just when all the stores have announced massive sales...
April; Sh! Is he really gone? Has Mugabe really stepped down?
May; Peaches has this uncanny knack for picking lottery numbers so it looks like we'll get that holiday in Greece after all.
June; It took an humanitarian crisis in Gaza, but it seems those guys are actually talking to each other about power sharing, international aid and relaxing border controls.
July; Just a quick post from our windsurfing holiday in Greece to share the news that today I learnt to water start.
August: I really like what Amy Winehouse has done with her hair.
September; Peaches started pre-school today and I have to say I was a little embarrassed, and okaaay - a little bit proud - when the staff noticed straight-away how well-balanced, gifted and popular she is.
October; Recaro is so irresponsible. He's insisting that we are ready to put this house on the market and make use of his payrise by insisting that we move to a lovely family house (with period features throughout and yet strangely modern kitchen..).
November; I've been researching holidays in Cuba, but it seems everything's been booked up by Americans who can't wait to make the most of their refound friendship.
December; What with all this world peace breaking out everywhere, I thought that this Christmas, I might pray for Madonna to deal with all that excess weight she put on this year - after all I'm in such good shape I can afford to be charitable towards her difficulties with willpower and food.
January; It occured to me over Christmas that among all the incredible things that happened in 2009, I didn't cut myself once with the chopping knife - could it be that I finally grew out of my clumsy phase?
What sentence would you most like to write in 2009?
