Morning All!  Not sure I'll be able to enter this competition, as I don't 'do' new year's resolutions normally. Never have done really. All my resolutions are 'spur of the moment' things, that I have managed to keep. Or not. 

The times I decided, to finally give up smoking are myriad, and three times I succeeded for very long periods (up to years in some cases), but they were never new year's resolutions. The last time was on 5 March 1985, and I haven't looked back since. I believe, I have finally beaten the addiction; as I cannot see myself falling into the trap again. For starters, we could not afford it any more!

After every Christmas, there is, however, the guilty conscience about the amount of chocolate that I somehow managed to consume. I'll have to do something with that, before it all disappears!

OK, think this could be fun, i'm up London on Thursday with Eileen so i'm fairly sure i can get 1 or 2 really bad pics to use.

I'm assuming that 'out of focus'. 'camera shake' and other such image qualities are not allowed to represent 'a new year resolution to not take any bad pictures  ;)'

It's whatever you want it to be so, in theory that would be OK but, it mustn't look staged.  :tup:

The weather has been foul all day, so I haven't been out at all. Very unhealthy, as I decided to have a go at my resolution photo. And, in good old Jinky style, I ate most of the props.

Anyway, not very original, but the only thing I could think of, as I don't really do resolutions, and my brain is so overworked through all the sugar and fat intake, that I could not think of a fictitious resolution.

So I'm in with this one:

Ha Ha!



Mick: the spellchecker tells me Jinky should be Kinky! Maybe you can teach it some manners?

No, no, no need. Mick is very good at training the checker. It did not accept my name either, when I first joined. Can't remember what it said I ought to be, but it wasn't as bad/funny as yours!

Don't think it would be wise for you to change your name, unless you want to go into Kinky Photography? ;)
