New Years Resolutions?

An insight into our New Year resolutions (see this cool website)

One example of a little experiment I carried out on some New Years Eve Revellers:

List five things that went well for you in 2006 & list five things that you hope for in 2007:


“Good things that happened in 2006 :

  • Bought a lovely flat
  • Moved in with lovely man
  • Got a new job
  • Got a lovely cat called Mary
  • Went to Malaysia and spent lovely time with good friends

Hopes & aspirations for 2007:

  • Get fit
  • Spend more time with people i love
  • Be truthful
  • Dream
  • Write letters”

The Turkey Wishbone

As it is Christmas time i felt it was very appropriate to make use of the turkey wishbone from my christmas dinner and hope for the best of my future!


Two people should each grasp one end of a chicken or turkey wishbone. Each person pulls on the wishbone while making a wish. The one who gets the larger piece of bone will get his or her wish. The wish must not be told to anyone. It is a good social christmas event and creates positive thoughts for the day. It may be utter nonsense but it may also urge you to complete your wish. I felt happy to have won the fight!

Inspiring imagery

According to Wikipedia, Fortune-telling is the practice of seemingly predicting the future, usually of an individual, through seemingly mystical or supernatural means and often for commercial gain. I have collated a few images that currently represent the thoughts running throug my head:

face reading, palmistry?
