OK, it didn't just fall; I dropped it, distracted by an item on the radio about using sports psychology to get ahead in the competitive world of blogging. It's a curse, being competitive: I first recognised the trait in myself at college when I took against the earnest lads at the front of the lecture-theatre and set out to out-perform them. From there, through a series of triumphs, fate leads me to blogging. It could have been worse: it could have been golf, or growing giant vegetables. The Kitchenaid was absolutely fine; the floor broke.
I'm a bit sad about the broken floor, but uplifted by the Kitchenaid's magnificent resilience. Surely these people should start manufacturing cars and hairdryers?
So, some resolutions for the sake of conforming with new year blogging norms:
Have the floor mended.Quit being competitive.Read up on sports psychology.Stop adding to my carefully curated collection of unread newspapers.Mix more cakes.Post shorter, more focused posts, perhaps including morals.No, I mean it.Appear more resolute.
