We had a fantastic time with Ally and Steve. We started off with a curry (ooh, could just eat it again now!), then back to their's for a couple of drinks and some dodgy dancing round the kitchen to old 80s metal tunes (bit of Lita Ford anyone?!). OK, so me and Ally did, the blokes sat and watched Top Gear! Then, at 10.30 we set off to town and visited a couple of pubs before heading off to the market square to see the New Year in with the mayor, some fireworks and a few hundred drunk people!Thanks Ally and Steve for a great night!
My parents had the kids last night so we went to pick them up at lunchtime but also stopped for a New Years Day roast dinner, along with Gem and Dave. It was delicious and just what we needed after a night out partying (though we were surprisingly lacking in hangovers between us). Thanks mum for refuelling us all!
That also gave me the opportunity to pop on their scanner and scan in these pics so I can post them. They're the kids school/nursery pics and I love them! If there's any family out there who need a copy (or indeed anyone else!), just give me a shout and I'll print some off.
So, who's expecting a list of resolutions from me then? Well as my daughter would say: Resolutions? Pooalutions! It ain't happening! I'm not setting myself up for the fall by the end of January when I've failed miserably; so there's going to be no promises of loosing weight, making money, finally getting round to doing all those little jobs etc etc. I'm just going to relax and enjoy things as they happen: who cares if I don't have a 6 pack by the time we're laid on a beach in June? Let's face it, I didn't have one at 18, 3 stone lighter and 2 kids ago did I? So there's no point promising myself one now!
So, whatever 2009 brings I hope you enjoy it!
