Here's today's outfit! Instead of just red, white and blue, you'll see I've added black for a change, and somehow dressed like a kind of abstract American flag...gotta give my wardrobe a better look before I get dressed in future, I was actually messing about remixing clothes earlier but had to drive to Mother's before it got dark. The road down was insanely flooded - for someone who hates driving it was 40 minutes of hell! (made worse by my iPod adapter breaking and having to listen to a v crackly radio all the way down...)

This dress was a recent eBay bargain - it kinda looks not much like the pic, the sequins were an, um, nice surprise... ;)

So I don't usually take much notice of new years resolutions, but I thought I'd have a go at creating some goals this year, since I can feel my life...drifting a bit, if you will. Here goes...
Save enough £££ to go to America next year - I'd either like to go for a couple of months to travel or for longer to work - however, going by the Visa requirements I've come across, the former may be my more realistic option
Complete the 10K race in a better time - I'd like to get my time under 50 minutes, last year I did it in under 56, which is fair, but I definitely felt unprepared and out of sorts that day, so I'm hoping with more intensive training I can do it. I realise a better goal would be to run a half marathon, but I get bored running for too long and I'd rather keep it 'fun'.
Run outside once a week - obviously this ties to the previous goal - I almost always run on the treadmill at the gym cause of the weather here, wind plus asthma makes a horrid combination! Something I'd like to overcome...
Cycle when I can - again, weather dependant, but like I said above, I hate driving and paying for petrol bothers me! Mother got me a fabby pannier bag for Christmas so I can even go shopping with my bike now, no excuses! (altho I'm certain I'll find some... ;))
Learn to Cable and Fair Isle knit - I've been knitting for 20 years and almost never do anything complicated - in the past year, I've found myself more into knitting than sewing, so I thought it was time to evolve things a bit!
Go to church more - I work every second weekend, but when I'm off Sundays generally mean lying in bed til noon then dragging myself to Tesco for junk food, no more! I think more church can only be a good thing anyway (for me that is, obviously everyone has their own views on this).
Buy even more of my clothing/non grocery items second hand - last year I got pretty good at charity and eBay shopping but this year I hope to get even better! I've been watching and reading a lot about the environment and consumerism lately, and figure the smaller my carbon footprint, the better!
Well there's the list! So now show me yours! What's everyone else's goals for the year? Anyone share any of mine?
