So, these were the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2014. I didn’t do very well…

  1. Continue to lose weight. Target 16 stone by June, 15 1/2 by end of the year. FAILED.
  2. To up my exercise. More golf, start running and a bit of rowing. FAILED.
  3. Try to resist getting involved in Twitter spats. PARTIALLY SUCCEEDED.
  4. Think of a way of raising £5k for charity. FAILED.
  5. To be a better husband to Simmo. I’LL LET HIM BE THE JUDGE OF THAT.
  6. To learn to say ‘no’ more often. (this has been a resolution for the last 2 years!). PARTIALLY SUCCEEDED.
  7. To think of a proper book to write (rather than edit). SUCCEEDED. IT’S OUT IN FEBRUARY!
  8. To finally go to Berlin. FAILED.
  9. To blog more often. PARTIALLY SUCCEEDED.
  10. To be tougher in my political interviews. SUCCEEDED (I THINK!)

Four or maybe five out of ten. Failure!
