Where I come from in Devon we would normally call today Old Years Night rather than New Years Eve, and actually I quite like that as it seems to me to be more about summing up the year that is leaving rather than racing towards the new year and forgetting the outgoer.
Tonight we are home with just the three of us. Eldest son is at a party of course. We usually go to a party but with my cold I dont feel like leaving the house. And if I am honest I like the parties less each year. So we had a nice dinner together and now we must try to stay awake for another 4 hours!
Tomorrow is a new day, a new year, clean slate, new plans, new diary even. A time of infinite possibilities. For us we plan to concentrate on paying off our debt/mortgage. We hope we can keep the swim school breaking even or at least not losing too much, through the hard times to come, ready to work for us agan when the economy recovers a bit. If we can find cheap flights then we visit the Crete house in the summer but otherwise our plans are fluid.
Happy New Year!
