2 January 2014

Feels weird writing that date!!

But anywho...

What did you all get up to for NYE?  Was it everything you hoped for?  Did you get your sparkle on?  Was the night full of fireworks, new romance and excitement?  Or was it like 99% of the population and was it basically another night of the year, not too bad, but nothing terribly exciting either?

I went to a good friend's house for a desert party.  We all brought a drink and a desert and sat around eating, drinking, chatting and listening to music.  I met a few old friends, met a few new people and generally the night was fine.

At midnight we switched on the TV to watch the fireworks and the big countdown, then we let off partypoppers and a few (everyone else except for me) people sang Old Lang Syne (is that even how it is spelt?).

After that we went into her garden and lit chinese lanterns and set them off into the sky. 

This was where the trouble started!!

One of them took off okay, but then landed squarely in the tree of the next door's garden, and proceeded to catch fire.  Needless to say in the excitement of that nobody noticed how perfectly mine and R's took off right up into the still night sky.  Well we stood and watched it floating off, smiling to ourselves, all loved up, and everyone else panicked.

Then as I looked around I realised our car was parked underneath that same tree so I panicked a little too. 

The lantern fell from the tree into the hedge (totally missing our car) and was soon pulled off the hedge.  We all ran into the house giggling like teenagers!!

Me and R then said our goodbyes and went home to snuggle up and watch some Dr Who.

New Year's Day was spent either cooking dinner, eating or snuggling in front of the fire.

Today we are back to work.

Another year over, a new one just begun....
