Happy New Year, everyone!
We’re back. The house is in one piece and it’s, surprise, surprise, raining.
I was smart enough to marry an Australian and therefore get to spend alternate Christmases swimming with the great white sharks in the turquoise blue sea off Western Australia. And then towelling off and sitting in the sand sipping an excellent Margaret River shiraz.
Of course I was glad to see this video AFTER I’d returned home. The attack occured down the shore from where we were staying.
The drawback of travelling so far, unfortunately, besides the expense, is the jetlag. This morning the entire household was up wandering around at 4 am. Better than the 3 am the morning before I guess.
But now it is time to get back to work.
And decide on a New Year’s resolution.
I am thinking about taking up karate. This year is a big birthday for me. (No, I don’t want to talk about it.)
Suffice to say that if I start this year I just might manage to become a black belt by the time I’m 60. Which could be a good thing. Maybe my smooth moves and quick reaction would dazzle a marauding shark.
Then again, maybe not.
So. What are your New Year’s resolutions?
Besides drinking more wine and eating more chocolate.
