Happy New Year

Since we had kids, all the late night dancing and carousing has died out. We just about manage to stay up to see the New Year in, most years. There have been a couple of occasions when we've woken up after the event, shrugged and gone to bed.

This year, the kids wanted to stay up for it. Well, Mel did and if M
el does, then the rest of them do too. We gave them a bath and stuck them on the sofa in front of Pirates of the Caribbean and the inevitable happened..... They all fell asleep.

Waiting up for the New Year.

This morning I feel great. I am ready to take on whatever 2010 throws at me. Life is buzzing. I took the dog for a very cold walk in the forest. It is well below freezing. When I got there, the car park was virtually empty and I thought I had the forest to myself, the way it is usually.

It really gets busy on holidays. When I was there on Boxing Day, I could hardly find a place to park. We walked for an hour or so and by the time we got back to the car park, it was starting to fill up. I guess I was just an early bird today. Still, by next week I will have the place to myself again.
