Do you have any resolutions for 2016? Is there something you hope for in 2016 at a personal level?

My resolution is to not procrastinate, and my personal hope is that my family all have a healthy 2016 and that I am reunited with a cat that I really really miss.

Hmmm.... This is an interesting topic to turn into a poll. Let me see if I can create one. Give me a few minutes.

Weird... tried to create a poll, and it failed. Will need to take a look to see why.

Okay, I just added a poll. Not sure why it didn't work the first time....also, have a couple of cows for starting this topic.

Two cows - wooo hooo, that made my New Years Eve as I can't be bothered going out tonight as it is wet and miserable and so am spending my evening alone at home!

I would like to travel in 2016, I was travelling a lot in my last job, so much that I actually got sick of airports, but I didn't go outside the UK this year and so next year I would like to travel again - always wanted to do a road trip across the US, and also visit China, so it will hopefully be one of those two this year!

I clicked on "Other" because I don't have any resolutions for 2016. (And anyway I'm a non-smoking non-drinking retiree and I travel a lot so most of the choices wouldn't apply to me anyway!)

Every year I resolve to never make any more new years resolutions. I'm not sure if I am succeeding or failing.

I want to break 18min in 5K. Should that be a resolution or hope?

Depends on how long it takes you to run 5K now. For example if your best time is 32 minutes then it's a hope, and a faint one at that. But if you're around 20 minutes then by all means file the resolution with the relevant New Years Resolution Bureau and go for it.
