New Year's Eve, using time to acquire free wisdom nuggets from the internet (no sarcasm implied, they are free and they are nuggets). What have I learnt so far? The last day of the year is apparently a good day to look back and write about nice and not so nice things that happened, about plans that went awry and targets that were hit. I think it's impossible to accomplish all of the above when there's still some cooking to be done and the house is not tidy enough. Better forget about one final frantic attempt to close that diary that has got some random pages scribblings next to huge swathes of blank space. It is a terrible proof of inconsistency. If there ever was a smoking gun of wasted time, my diary is the one. Should the new year bring new resolutions in its wake? Yeah, why not, but not until the roast is safely extracted from the oven.
