Happy New Year!

We're home. It's weird - we keep expecting the cat to do things that she can't do as she isn't here. I suppose it just takes time to get used to not having her around.

New Year was certainly as good as I had hoped. We went to the Mitre at 9pm and left at half 3 having consumed food from the buffet and drinks from the bar, played a quiz (and lost), pulled crackers party poppers and blown whistles, sung Auld Lang Syne at midnight and played with jigsaws and other assorted cracker toys.

What more could you want?

On the way home I irritated my friends by having to stop and fiddle with my new boots every few steps until I gave up and walked up the hill in soggy socks. I should really know better than to wear brand new shoes to do a 2 mile round trip....

When we finally got home we tucked into Mum's cooked ham then went to bed. (thanks Mum)

Now we're back this is our last day off so we're duty-bound to enjoy it! My boyfriend wants to go to the cinema. I fancy tidying up here a bit more and playing Star Wars Monopoly (tragic but true).

I hope everyone else had a great new year and wish you all the best for 2007! New Years Resolutions anyone?

Happy New Year to you, too! Thanks for dropping by :)

Glad the celebration was up to par, TC. I know the feeling of wanting to just absorb that "at-home" feeling for as long as possible. Monopoly sounds great, but Star Wars??? Have a happy day, and hope your first day back is easy on your mind, spirit and body.

:-D never seen the star wars monopoly, but would be willing to try it...

Glad you're back, Topchamp - missed ya!

Seems like you had a good New Year - I spent most of the evening at my sister's trying to edit the headshave vid so that YouTube would take it! :-( Still, it's on there now :-)

Thank you soooo much for the birthday card - (are you going to send me the cake too? :-D I didn't have one yesterday...)

Happy New Year! sweetie!
