on resolutions I may or may not have made

Wow! Last year's resolutions were a 100% bust. From making more minicomics to sorting out the kitchen to learning to drive to grafting an apple tree (plus a few more I'll not go into) every single one was just wreckage in the jaws of 2012. But never mind! There were a bunch of things to celebrate in 2012:

Things I have bought and been and done
New certificates - ILM 3 (FLM) and PTLLS. Ready to manage and train and doing plenty of both.
Cultural Olympiad - A Room for London, more Tate than I could stand, Opening Ceremony, many other things.
The Strumpet 2012 - Launched and promoted and modestly Kickstarted, and filled with talented female cartoonists.
Backyard Harvest - Grew Fennel, Chillies, Strawberries, Raspberries, Gooseberries, squashes, peppers and even tomatoes in a year of wretched weather.
Cycling - A stellar year for UK cycling that peaked with me cheering in the Westfield branch of Yo Sushi as Bradley Wiggins brought home gold at the Olympics.
A page a day - I finished the last page on my current sketchbook on 31st Dec 2012, weirdly, but you'll have to take my word for it as I'm not scanning and posting.
New - phone, sack-truck, dresses, bag, TV, and I've just ordered a ray gun.

But never mind about that, here's the resolutions that matter:

In 2013, cleanskies resolves to...
Learn to play the ink.
Go cycling three times a week.
Go to the cartoons every month.
Become a better wine.
Apply for a new paper.
Spend less time on advice.
