If I’m honest, I’m not sure I enjoy the whole New Year’s Eve thing. Even before Ava, going out on NYE was always fraught with issues of where to go, how much it would cost and the worst part of it – how we were going to get home.
This year it’s just the three of us at home. We’re firing up the BBQ, popping open the bubbly and will toast the new year to come. Ava is excited to have some ‘fizzy water’ (just plain old natural mineral water but she thinks it’s ace because it’s fizzy, ha!) and no doubt we will let her stay up late.
Truth be told, I love a good fireworks display but these days I’m happy to watch them from the comfort of my own home. If there was a local display we would be there with bells on but alas, there’s no such thing near us. Although having said that, if we crane our necks from next door’s garden, we can just about see the fireworks over the city skyline.
So Happy New Year to all of you, we hope you enjoy your night. I’m now on my second gin and tonic so I’m hoping I don’t fall asleep before midnight, ha!
Bring on 2015! xx
