Hello 2019!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone is having a wonderful 2019 so far!

I don't normally make New Year's Resolutions, but there are a few things I want to do and now seems as good a time as any to start them, so turning them into resolutions makes sense...

1. Take up running. I have foolishly agreed to do a 7km run in May, mainly due to the promise of beer at the end, and I am very much out of practice. In fact I'm pretty sure that the last time I ran any significant distance would have been when I was at school, nearly twenty years ago, so unless I want to collapse and die after about fifty metres I should probably get my running shoes on sooner rather than later.

2. Do a 365 Project where you take a photo a day for the whole year. I'm hoping it'll help me with my photography cos I'll have to come up with new ideas and use new techniques to avoid taking the same photos every single day. And I'm hoping it'll be fun to do.

3. Finish reading books. I have this terrible habit of starting a book before finishing the one I'm currently reading. Sometimes this is because I've grown bored with the book (looking at you George RR Martin) but usually it's because something will make me think of another book I want to read and I don't want to wait so I'll start it immediately. I currently have five books on the go and I really must make myself finish them before starting anything new.

I could probably come up with more, but three seems like a reasonable and achievable number. And to end this entry I present to you the first of my 365 photos:
