Happy New Year to you and yours – lovely people reading my blog! Has it got off to a good start? Mine got off to a sore-headed one. For the first time in a few years, we actually stayed up and drank in the new year with friends and family. This was fun.
Got woken abruptly by a daughter who had chosen that particular day to re-discover her toy microphone, and stand by our bed shouting “WAKE UP BANANA HEADS” through it. This was not fun.
Bleary eyed and hair askew I was then dragged in to her room and made to reprimand the “cheeky ghost” that had apparently pulled the bobble out of her plaits during the night. (Things veering smoothing from ‘not fun’ to just plain weird.)
But God bless paracetamol and rehydration sachets! (Top hangover tip there folks: you’re welcome) and we spent a lovely day with family, involving the burning of a solstice Yule log, haggis, The Sound of Music and chocolate. (I never said my family were normal…lovely, but definitely not normal.)
This year, I will not be making any resolutions but I will be pinning this -my new mantra for 2014 – up somewhere:
It pretty much covers it. Do you do resolutions?
