Happy New Year!

Not exactly an original sentiment, but true nonetheless.

I'm off shortly for a nice meal and then over to a friend's for a party through to midnight.

New Year always seems overly stressful, trying to pull together too many disparate groups of friends who all seem to be doing their own thing and "never the twain shall meet". So much so that I am normally quite tempted just to stay home with a bottle of cava and a ready meal - but then I do like to have a change in routine every now and again! So the meal and party thing seems to work out quite well.

Although last year we ended up going to somewhere that was rather over-priced. I spoke to them on the phone and got the price, which I thought was pricey but what the heck, a special night and all. Only when seated did I spot that the price had gone up by a further £8. So we're not going there.

I've also been promised by my dining companion that contrary to last year, he isn't going to go out for a massive restaurant lunch only a few hours before.
Well he is, but is only go to have a starter!

Well, see you on the other side.
Hope you all have fun with whatever you do tonight and spend next year doing whatever it is that you really want to do (as long as it isn't illegal and doesn't involve small furry animals).
