Thanks to everyone for their comments on the "Year Without Lead" post.
Having made the decision, I feel surprisingly good about it all. I've even had a friend join me in his own Lead Fast. Who knows - perhaps this could become the new "Movember"!
I'm planning to start on New Years' Eve and carry through the whole of 2014. To answer Jeff, yes I have a few last minute purchases planned.
Ross, I agree on your point about being more tightly focussed. A few small games would not hurt either.
PS - doing something about my eBay account might not hurt, either.
