Dan and I went out for a New Years Eve do last night into the early hours. We started off going to the neighbours’ house before going to the village pub for drinks and a chat with some of the other villagers.
Later on we went back through the village to Colin and Karen’s and played games around drinks before watching the fireworks and popping party poppers and drinking champagne to welcome the New Year in. We had a great laugh and finally headed for home at 2:30 in the morning through falling snow to settle the cats and head for bed.
When we finally woke and had a full cooked breakfast a la Ted; Dee and I suited and booted and went off down the road get a breath of air and a little exercise. Generally we’ve had a quiet day but it’s been good, we’ve all needed to rest after the holiday.
Jewel is finally settling down, although she seems to be pathologically timid. Oliver is the confident one here, comfortable with the much larger house and larger group of people in a way that surprised me a bit, but I know that he is a good judge of people and that we are among good people.
Right. Time for another nap and maybe some food too. Dan’s cooking tonight!
