Here are my trousers so far....

Run a road race. I'm being whingey about this one. I've lost nearly a month of training time to shin-splints, and then gastroenteritis. Then I realised that the course I've chosen is the hilliest bastard imaginable. Plus, it's full of trees, so there are roots to leap over, and probably lurking orcs to slay. How am I supposed to get a non-shameful time in amongst all that? I am pulling my socks up as we speak and getting two 10ks and a 5k in per week, although I am still running on the sappy treadmill because it's too cold to go outside.
Write music. This is actually happening. Slowly but definitely, I nearly have enough decent songs for an EP. I've also been doing some vocals for the awesome Protectors, which has been very good fun so far. Penny & The Sausages are on baby hiatus so it's good to have something to keep my musical muscles occupied.
Go on holiday at least once. Tickets booked for Porto Primavera. I am extremely excited about getting to see Bjork at last, and the Afghan BLOODY Whigs, not to mention going to Portugal which is a whole new country I have never visited before! I will not be going anywhere unless I renew my passport though. I wonder if I concentrate hard, it might happen magically? Maybe if I look pathetic enough, someone will do it for me. I HATE PAPERWORK.
See friends. Trying! We only managed half our house guests this weekend because of the snow, but the thought was there.
Learn where all the countries in Europe are on a map. No.
Swim more. Shin splints have forced this resolution upon me. I have a waterproof mp3 player now and everything. I plan to fill it with water-themed songs. I need your suggestions in the comments, please.
Watch a classic film every month. Some of my friends (and friends of friends) have started hosting film nights at each others houses, so this should be easy peasy now. We watched Wings Of Desire last month, and this month we're watching Some Like It Hot, which is one of my all-time favourites. Film Club is also going to be a great way to meet a lot of new people's cats, which I am very excited about.
....and finally read Anna Karenina. NO. Come on, it's only January.
How are your new year's resolutions going so far?
