F*ck New Year’s resolutions 

Do you do New Year’s resolutions? I used to, but haven’t properly for years.  Although this year I’m thinking I might.

All because of a conversation that happened the other week that went a little something like this…

Husband {from the kitchen}: “I’ve got a bone to pick with you.”

Me: {from the armchair, inquisitively, in the living room}: “What’s that?”

Husband: “As I pulled into the garage tonight and turned off the car, Mr O said “let’s get out of this fucking car”…”


Now, if you don’t know already, I am partial to the odd swear word every now and then.  I mean, I love to live in colour so it’s only fitting that extends to my language, right…? Right?

Anyway, back to the living room.

Me, stress levels rising and thinking “shit” and also “this probably isn’t the best time to tell you he also said “son of a bitch” the other week when I took him to the fire station and it was closed” so instead I said: “maybe he heard that at daycare?”.

Husband: staring at me, silently.

Me: smiling, eyebrows raised, staring silently back at him until I said “Fuck, ok, point taken.”

So, this year I’m saying fuck to New Year’s resolutions. Fuck because I have to do it and fuck because it’s probably the last time I can say fuck.

Here’s to a fab 2016 peeps.  May it be filled with lots of fun, frivolity and fortune but not that F word, well, in the spoken sense at least.

What’s your resolution for 2016?

  1. Holy shit Jo! I had a conversation very much like this when my biggest boy was four. I told husband that I wear a lot of black, so to compensate, my language is a little more colourful. xx

  2. Classic… I rocked up to a dad and kids camp out to do an emergency beer drop and middle child, 6 saw me and said “what the hell are you doing here?” Point taken. Happy New Year Jo 😎

  3. Each of my three kids have a dropped a perfectly timed f-bomb – all before the age of two! ‘Let’s commend them on their colourful, rapidly expanding vocabulary,’ I weakly suggested to the husband, ‘And let’s ask…. your parents to please watch their language around their grandchildren….’
