Time to say good bye to December and hello to January ... I think you are gonna be cold.
Time to say good bye to 2014 and hello to 2015 ... I hope you will be awesome.
And it's also time to say a sad farewell to Christmas! I will miss you, though there is loads more space in the lounge and everywhere feels lots tidier.
We waved good bye to 2014 with our very good friends, Jackie and Phil. We wandered round to theirs for a fabulous New Years Eve feast which we didn't finish eating until about 11.45pm, perfect timing.
We feasted on crispy duck with stir fried veggies, followed by home-made Coquilles St Jacques and on to Beef Wellington with Dauphinoise potatoes and veg for the main event.
We broke for a couple of games of Monopoly Deal, a new card game which I think we will be looking out for ourselves, before finishing our feast with chocolate roulade or walnut parfait, or both in some cases!
We caught the end of the Queen concert which was amazing, before watching the London fireworks which never disappoint.
We'd had a lovely relaxing evening with good friends, very good food and even some good wine, home made by Martin. It was just before 2.00am before we made for the short walk home, not bad for a gang of over 50s.
New Years Day we didn't surface till gone midday. I have to say it wasn't the drinking that did us in, we just can't cope with late nights anymore.
We've spent the rest of the week and weekend just pottering about, getting straight, visiting family and friends and buying lots of craft stuff.
2015 is looking like it will be a busy one with lots of projects already in my mind and wanting to make a start on the 50 things I want to do before I'm 60. It could also be Martin's last year before he retires so in 2016, if things go to plan, we may be Pottering a Deux!!
Bring it on ...... I'm ready!!
