You don't like New Year's either?
:P


First Christmas and now this...
(truth is I'm not a big New year's Even fan either. I like to have a few close friends over for a nice dinner party. Going out never seems like a good idea since the food is traditonally awful and overpriced. And where I am it's -10 C.)

MHB, I'm soooo jealous! :(

New Year's eve in Melbourne, Australia=45C, it was terribly hot! I'll take cold any day. Don't get me wrong, I was with good friends, good food and nice drink, but it was too hot to enjoy it all. We were all miserable, couldn't sleep for the heat, the smoke thingo went off at 3 a.m., half the house heard it & got up to check that it wasn't a fire (it wasn't).

Happy New Year, Everyone. It is good to be back in my own bed! :wink:

Hi Matney,

Yes, I have to agree, it is glorious. Yesterday I went out snowshoeing for an hour in the woods in front of our house. It was wonderful. Even I have to admit though, 4 weeks of winter is enough. I'm always glad to get back to Singapore after winter home leave. This year we have had tons of snow though, which makes leaving a bit harder. We have been doing a lot of extreme sledding... So, so much fun.

Honestly?

Had a good new year's eve, nice dinner with Wild rover, Jolmar and a colleague of Wild Rover, then we went to see the fireworks at One fullerton with about 3 million others (got a bit lost there), still ok. then we went o meet a few others, still ok. then strolling down boat quay and to attica, not ok, silly and desperate atmosphere.

couldnot get a cab back home, then walked to City hall and got mrt early morning.

Sad and missed someone..... :(

I am ok now though.... :)

though.... missing you as well, when is you to arrive back home La Reinne?

Eric

I am home in one weeks time. Looking forward to seeing my dogs and getting these children back in school. We have had a great vacation though, with tons of snow and lots of good family time. May try to ski tomorrow :)

FYI Ma'am Viceroy, your leftover cookies reached Vietnam and were being gobbled by two cuties aged 7 and 3. :)

hey ainslee, like vaucluse said, hope you have a better year this time. if you want some unsolicited advice, what i find helps me is to decide how i want the year to end (achievements, relationships, finances etc) and spend the rest of the year getting it done. then when i look back, it will have been a great year! :D

Nice one, Saint :D

Got 2006 all planned out! Barring unnatural disasters, MBA is in sight and my final duel with the system that tried to assimilate my culture into something unsightly...
