See Ma Resolutions?

See me? See New Year’s resolutions? Ah hate them, so ah dae.

Every year ah say ah’m no gonnae dae them ony mair, but as sure as a murder oan Eastenders Christmas edition, ah aye end up makin’ a few.

Ah mean, efter the excesses o’ Christmas, we aw feel a bit guilty, don’t we? We spend two weeks spendin’ enough money tae keep Greece afloat and sittin oan oor erses, stuffin oor faces wi’ turkey, chocolate and booze. So whit’s the furst resolution we make? Losin’ weight. Ah’m no sayin’ that ah couldny dae wi’ losing a few stone. If ah pit oan a thong it’d split ma erse between two postcodes. And ye canny switch oan the telly withoot seein’ ads fer Weightwatchers, Lighter Life and Scottish Slimmers. Ah widny mind, but they aye use right skinny bitches tae advertise. Gie’s me the boak, so it does.

Talkin’ o’ which, wi aw think aboot joinin’ a gym an’ gettin’ fit. If ah did a circuit oan the machines at ma cooncil gym, the only thing ah’d be fit fer wid be the knacker’s yard. Last year ah signed up and paid fer the year up front. That wis eleven months and three weeks wasted money, so ah’m definitely no daein’ that again.

Anither popular resolution is daein’ somethin’ tae better yersel’. Taking up paintin’, yoga, learnin’ a new language. Well, ah don’t see why ah should hiv tae learn tae speak  another language. If foreigners come tae oor country, fair play tae them, but ah don’t see why ah should learm tae speak whit thae dae They can learn themselves tae speak English like ah dae.

So this year, this year ah’m only makin’ wan New Year’s resolution. Jist wan, but it’s a good wan. Ah resolve tae make nae maer resolutions! Well, mebbes jist wan maer. See ma man? See his Jumbo Sausage? Ah’m definitely no gi’en THAT up!

Happy New Year!

    I’m with you in the ‘no resolutions’ corner. What’s the point of setting myself up to fail just because it’s New Year?

      I know exactly what you mean. I sometimes make wee quiet personal resolutions but I tell no one!

    I adore this woman. When is she getting her own Diary of a Weegie? And I agree – “the gods only allow us to make plans for the pleasure of screwing them up for us” … I’ll just take what’s coming!

    • Nettie

      You know, you’ve given me an idea! Just what I need – another project!

      Than you, Ailsa x x x

        Happy to oblige – would be the first to buy it when it’s released!

    Nettie – Oh, this is my kind of thinking about making resolutions! I love it! I’ve never liked those skinny women on those weight loss/gym adverts either….

    All the best to you and your family in 2014! Happy New Year!
