Hello 2015 – New Year’s Resolutions and Travel Notes

I am sitting at my table and wondering what time it is – we landed at Heathrow about 8 hours ago after 10 days travelling and I  feel weary and out of sorts – so what better way of spending a few minutes than jotting down some random notes.

New Year Resolutions 

  1.  Improve my written word (grammar, spelling….).  This is actually going to be quite hard.  I read a hurried comment I made  New Years Day on a web site. I made it while getting ready for the off to visit daughter 2 in Singapore.  Arrggh I was so embarrassed – in it I mentioned I had dislexic (dyslexic) fingers – it is more than that.
  2. Regain fitness and “youth” – ok I know it is a bit late for that but….. We needed a 60×40 mug shot for the Visa to enter Vietnam – looking at the photo’s on screen before printing was awful – lines, wrinkles – I am sure my rate of aging has started galloping.
