Well another year has ticked over and 2014 stretches ahead full of potential and surprises, I can't wait! 2013 whizzed along at an increasingly frenetic pace, I am hoping for a slightly slower year this time, I have so many things I want to do, I need to make sure there is time for everything.
Last night we saw the new year in with a rather hasty party. Jesse asked a few days ago if he could have some friends over, so with a house of 20+ eighteen year olds (and a couple of old friends for us),
we threw a party together. The evening was perfect for sitting outside around the fire, we enjoyed a few drinks and nibbles, the kids (teenagers) seemed to have fun, there was plenty of noise and revelry going on. Many of Jess's friends crashed at our house, some in tents, some on couches, and I have to say they were much quieter this morning when we woke up, I think there were a few sore heads being nursed! :)
So today has been a day of recovery, (I never get much sleep when I have a houseful of other people) and cleaning up, one of those post party days that are typical of New Year Days. I have put fresh flowers out, and washed the floors. Over night the weather turned, and we have had a day of rain and cloud, perfect for chilling out and doing not much!
Today I have also been doing a few rows on a new hooky project I started after Christmas, so nice to sit quietly and hook away with the rain on the windows, a very relaxing way to bring in the New Year!
Now I have to ponder on a few resolutions, I always like to make a few even if they rarely last the summer holidays, maybe this year will be different!
Have you been partying too?
Did you have a big night or see the New Year in quietly?
Whatever you did, I wish you a big, fabulous New Year! It's going to be great!!
