Happy New Year 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Yes, indeed, here at home in NZ it is well into day ONE of 2011. And I am pleased. I haven't had much fun out of 2010 so I'm looking forward to this coming year. I just strolled home from friends at 1a.m. and soon I have to collect Christy and Asher from parties around about. Thank goodness for cellphones.

It's a quiet and calm night here which is great after some fierce wind storms earlier in the week. Christy and I had a late night dash up to my mother's place during the week to gift her with a one year old cat called Verona (!) that belonged to our friend's daughter (she's off to London and her friend turned the cat down at the last minute). So my mother has a new cat, a gorgeous young grey cat that is gentle and sweet. I'll post a picture later! We drove for 7 and a half hours and the cat never cried. She's amazing.

So I'm calm. I'm about head off into the night. I am looking forward to doing some writing in the next few days. I feel happy. I am so glad 2010 is OVER!

So happy new year, dear friends. Let's make the most of this year. An elderly parishioner met me out on a walk this morning and said that evil only takes over when good people do nothing. So let's do good stuff and ...well, maybe not save the world but... let's work at making our little corners of the world pretty good places to be. I just want to be calm and happy and organised a bit... resolutions? I'm thinking of just doing more writing. For me. ME!

So far in 2011 I have toasted some friends to the strains of Scottish bagpipe music, waved sparklers around (we spent the whole evening out in the garden because it's so hot), played one last game of Petanque, walked home in the dark by myself, driven to collect Christy and boyfriend (and a very tipsy friend) from a party that was up a cable car (lots of houses have those here), then collected Asher at another party, dropped tipsy friend in centre of city, saw all the drunk revellers in Courtenay Place, eaten cheeseburgers from McDonalds drive-thru, now I've just fed the rabbit, cat and fish and now I might go to bed! It's half past two in the morning now! I guess it's your new year soon

It's 3PM, so a few hours left of 2010 yet... :)

My brain short-circuited when I read, "It's so hot". I can barely remember what hot felt like, heee.

Sounds like you had a busy night! Rest well, and happy new year again!

Happy new year to you as well - and to all your family:)

I'm hoping for a better year this year as well. A new start and a chance to put the crap that was 2010 behind us ... sounds good*g*

All the best, hope you get your writing done:)
