Just arranged to go to Son's for a late tea and see in the new year tomorrow. Then I have the whole gang for New Year Dinner, so I'd better not have too much pop.

Happy New Year everyone.big_hug

We've had a fairly low key christmas, we drove around and visited parents, but its the only year we didn't have a tree or put up any decorations. New year will be fairly quiet with just the two of us and a bottle or two of mulled wine. The last few months of 2011 have been very tiring and I don't think I have the energy for a hectic or late night!

Speak for yourself, MOS - and try to keep yer angle grinder away from yer body, for the next few days at least big_laugh while A&Es are super busy.

F will probably send 100 Twitter tweets on NY eve (she adores the new clean slate) and I will try to hide my usual depressed feelings about yet another year gone to waste monster

Another year gone to waste? Nothing is wasted if we learn from it cheers Tough years are to build upon and good years are to celebrate cheers, but really most years are a mixture of both anyway big_hug

OK....promise I will and if you are coming this way....anybody...you'll be lucky to get here...it's snowing...kisskiss  so I'm curling up early with a book and a bottle and I'll put out two glasses just in case....eeekeeek  and I might just have to drink both of them to save it going to waste....

 

May I wish you all what you hope for in 2012 but if you get what you deserve or what is good for you...accept it, learn the lesson well or it will be back again and again..aargh..aargh   big_laugh

 

Happy New Year....big_hugbig_hug

Six or maybe 8 people for dinner tonight. We liked our roast beef on Christmas Day so much that we are doing it again, but with Danny's method this time. Friends are bringing the starter (think it may involve seafood). I'm making a bilberry tart for afters. Bottles of blanquette chilling in the fridge. Better get on and clean the house now, it's a tip eeek
