New Year

Every New Year’s Eve I keep saying to myself I will do something for the next year, but it never happens. My husband and I usually cook a 3-course meal at home and celebrate the New Year with a bottle of Prosecco. Well, I drink the bottle of Prosecco and my husband (Doug) will probably have a few beers.

This time it was different as we now had a 3-month-old ringing the New Year in with us. She was such an angel and was in bed by 7 pm, which then allowed us to prepare, cook and eat our dinner all in one go. We didn’t do the usual 3-course meal as we were still stuffed from Christmas, but we did have a main and a dessert, which was some brownies I had made Christmas Eve. After the meal, we watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I was really getting into the film but as I was extremely exhausted I missed the ending and went to bed at 10:30. Doug woke me up when he came to bed at midnight to say Happy New Year which was lovely.

I could hear the fireworks and what seemed like someone playing the bagpipes. Cheers of delight and a happiness were being heard from all around and it made me think how extremely happy and content I am with my little family. Bringing in the New Year as a wife and a mother really made 2014 such a great year. Now I can only wonder what 2015 has in store.
