One New Year's tradition that isn't going anywhere.
One New Year's tradition that isn't going anywhere.

It's the first week of the year and of course, that means New Year's resolutions are creeping into your feed whether you like it or not. 

Most people fall into either one of two groups when it comes to New Year's Resolutions.

Whichever of the two you find yourself in, this is one New Year's tradition that isn't going to go away, so you might as well embrace it. And by embracing it, we mean pointing and laughing. 

Finding the humour in the ever constant is one way of dealing, and we found a few parents serving New Year's resolutions the way we like it.

I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
