Happy New Year!
The Snook and I celebrated with steak au poivre and a bottle of bubbly. At midnight I rang the fam and talked to my Mom for too long before we realized that Skype would be much cheaper. So Mom and I video-chatted, and then I rang and woke up Dad. Snookums is still working on the video-encoding of Sydney's fireworks. Me, I've been looking at last year's resolutions. And you know what? I didn't do too bad! I got to my healthy BMI level... though I'm probably above it now. But I'm not gonna beat myself up over it. I ran four races with the Snook, including the City 2 Surf. I read more books. In 2007 I'd like to:
  • Reach my goal weight of 75kg, just to prove I can
  • Run a half-marathon
  • Get my finances in order, so the Snook and I can face our thirties as grown-ups
  • Make a definite plan for buying a house
Not that these are my goals alone; I've just conferred with the Snook and he's onboard too. "That sounds like a lot to do." It's gonna be a big year.

Happy New Year Kris!

Good luck with the resolutions. Think my only one is to move to Perth, WA to see what living abroad is like :)

So you better come visit sometime when i make it over.

Happy New Year!

We just hung at home last night too. The crowds were just out of control. Looks like we share the 'home buying' goal for this year. We are even going to talk to a financial consultant next week, EEK!

Nah, you guys are leaps and bounds ahead of us in terms of planning and preparation. Heck, I don't even particularly want to buy a house; it just seems like everybody thinks we should. Me, I want to live in a serviced apartment forever! :)
