Mood: Belated Happy New Year!
I know I’m over a month late, but better late than never.
Happy New Year!
I have a bunch of photos of the fireworks from NYE 09/10 that I’ve gleaned from the net, which I will upload at some point.
You’ll be pleased to know that we missed most of the fireworks, again, but this time it was due to the fact we were having too much fun playing with our new friends Charley and Ant.
J and I had our annual bash on NYE, with a small select group of people invited to eat, drink and be merry. This year, we hosted Chuck and Kyung, Emma our neighbour from L16 (and her "children" Charley and Ant), along with repeat offenders (I mean partygoers) Fiona and Dan. For a change, I wasn’t the one who ended up horizontal by 1.30am – J took the honours this year, after a wild night of mixing his drinks, switching with no rhyme nor rhythm.
This year, J bought Sing Star for the party people to karaoke the night away. We had so much fun!
The party finally petered out at around 3.30am, when the guests all passed out and I’d finished tidying up. I was surprised to feel not too drunk, and was extremely happy to wake up with no hangover.
Breakfast was a veritable feast of bacon, capsicum and sweet corn fritters (vegetarian ones for Emma), which were devoured along with jugs of juice and coffee. The last of our guests left around midday, and J and I found ourselves comfortable spots on the couch and flaked out for the rest of New Year’s Day.
We are so blessed to have such great friends. What a terrific NYE and NYD – let’s do it again next year!
