Happy New Year

It really is 2009 and I wonder what the year will have in store…

Now is a time for resolutions and I can promise you that Deafinitely Girly has already made a few – they are all neatly listed in the diary that The Writer gave me for Christmas.

Perhaps the most important one is that I have resolved not to be so nosey in 2009. Did you know that there are some things in life you are just not meant to know? But for me, I dig away, investigate until I have the information I want and invariably all that does is upset, unsettle and at worst, unhinge me.

So, no more prodding and prying for me!

My second resolution is to find out how to get wishes to come true…

You see, I took London Cousins 1 and 2 to the ballet at the weekend and the underlying theme of this particular story was wishes. Between them, they had a pretty big wish and I would sincerely love it if I could make it come true.

My third, WAS to acquire a superpower. Hanging out with 9- and 7-year-old London Cousin 1 and 2 for much of Christmas meant that there was lots of time to ponder on this sort of thing with them. London Cousin 1 wanted to be invisible and London Cousin 2 wanted to fly.

I told them, in a very noisy Wagamamas that I would like extra-specially amazing hearing. They looked at me like I had lost the plot. ‘Why would you want that?’ London Cousin 1 asked me, ‘You’d hear all the bad things people were saying about you, too.’

And you know what? She’s right…

It would also break my New Year’s Resolution of not to be nosey as I would be able to poke my ears in here there and everywhere.

So I guess that in order to stop being so nosey I have to be deaf…

And if that’s the case, then it’s not so bad after all.
