    2018 non-golf goals

    Ok, in light of the thread close to the top, currently, what are your plans for 2018?

    1) Get healthy!!! I have an op mid Jan, and then lets see what the long term recovery plan is. Chemo? Can't be that bad!!
    2) Move to Spain in Feb, and recover in the sun.
    3) Join a decent club out there and start playing the volume of golf I was playing a few years back. Is cat 1 out of reach?
    4) Learn Spanish, and integrate with the community.
    5) A bucket load of charity work I've got lined up - I might as well work full time.
    6) 2x weddings, our children, back in the Uk in 2018, one of which fits in with H4H.

    Never had such a full calendar!! And never looked forward so much in my life. 2018 is going to be a mega year!!

    Regardless of my goals best of luck with #1 mate

    - get healthy and lose some weight
    - spend more time with my teenage kids before they fly the nest
    - remember to tell my wife everyday that I am the luckiest man in the world

    All the best with number 1. Chemo is different for everyone as some feel the side effects more than others. I’ve just had 6 of 8 planned sessions and have been very lucky, feel like junk for a few days after but nothing too serious. Good luck and your positive outlook will definitely help.

    Interesting how as you get older health issues become more relevant in this type of thread.

    I want get rid of my tennis elbow, 4 years and counting.

    Use my kettle bell to strengthen my lower back.

    Eat fruit more often. More manageable than veg for me.

    Number 1 - almost the same as Brian, I've recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer. I am at the very early stages that require watching for changes.

    Number 2 - paint and decorate all the upstairs rooms after doing all downstairs this summer

    Number 3 - decide whether to fully retire of continue my part time job

    Number 4 - enjoy the 2 holidays we've booked so far for this year

    Number 5 - hope that Hobbit ensures his number 1 asap

    Puts it all in perspective. Good luck with your treatment/recovery gents.

    My short term goal is to get over my hangover! Will reassess after that
