If you think that you have just one life, think again. There's the life you think you have, the life others think you have and the life you really have- three lives!

Happy goodbye 2006 and hello 2007 to all.
Hope you have all prepared for the new year with your resolutions.

Here are mine. Add yours if you like.

1. I will be more organised

Not really, but I always add this resolution. OK I might tidy my desk or clear out my wardrobe to make room for new clothes but those things usually last a couple of weeks before chaos sets in again!

2. I will give up smoking

OK- not really. I'll certainly try. Last year I gave up for a full 5 weeks. Twice.

3. I will control my road rage when driving

Ummmm- not really. In fact, no, I don't see this one going anywhere at all to be honest

4. I will say "no" when my boss asks me to work overtime, work from home, work on my days off, answer emails while I'm on holiday, work late, come in early, look over a document sent to my email at midnight etc etc etc.

He's gonna cry...

5. I will stop my addiction to handfuls of chocolate covered peanuts after dinner

That one's gonna hurt- really hurt

6. I will not yell at my kids and I will try to treat my 16 year old like an adult

Yeah right!

7. I will spend less money on useless items. I do not need another pair of stilletos even if they do go just perfectly with my dress/handbag/skin/eyes/mobile phone/purse/lipstick/pen/curtains.

Another one that's gonna hurt.

8. I will try to spend more time with my family even if it means that I have to do yucky boys stuff with three smelly teenagers and my husband who think that driving a car round and round in a circle is fun or that hitting a tiny ball with a club and then trying to find it in a huge field while wearing ugly clothing is sport!

I don't know why we can't all just go shopping together, then maybe have a coffee before heading off to the beauty salon for a much needed facial. Why can't we do that as a family? Why does family stuff have to involve me having to wear ugly flat shoes?

9. I will be nicer to the dog.

I am nice to him but it's just that he smells and he does that licking his balls thing and then comes yapping around my feet and sniffs my crotch and stuff. And he shits everytime I take him for a walk and I have to pick it up and carry it around in a little bag like it's something precious.

10. I will seek help to overcome my fear of chickens.

Don't laugh- it's a documented phobia OK. Lots of people have it. Trust me, a chook will peck you to death if you let it and have absolutely no remorse. They are evil, evil I tells ya (except for the roasted ones- they're yummy).
