Well, we made it, we’re here. 2021, here we come, ready to charge and take life to its full, well, maybe tomorrow we’ll start.
Last night we “brought in the new year” twice. First was in Paris at a virtual concert given by Jean Michel Jarre at Notre Dame, which really was the best of the two, as the UK new year was just the bongs of Big Ben and the TV watching the Elizabeth Tower clock, yes exciting hey! NOT!
We did have a lovely bottle of red which J at work got me for my birthday. Smooth, and almost went down like water. M had a Guinness and I had a few Gins, so it wasn’t a drunk night, thankfully LOL. When midnight hit the “Spanish Villa” across from us decided to let off lots of fireworks, which I have to admit, they were really good. Our neighbours from a few doors down came out to watch the fireworks, and all at once turned to our house and waved, that made me wave back and brought a smile to my face. Maybe it was a sign to a better year ahead, or more likely, they were all drunk and saw me at the window.
We decided to have a lazy day today, however, I started to strip the Christmas lights from the windows, then M bought in the tree decoration boxes, and next thing all the decorations and the tree was stripped and all boxed away. Tomorrow we will take the tree physically down and box it up for this year. Each year we say we will wait till 12th night, and each year we never make it past new years day.
I have not really bothered with the whole resolutions as they get broken usually by the 2nd. My usual trim down after Christmas will begin, but I guess that goes for most people.
All that remains for me to say to you all is Happy New Year, and may 2021 be a better year for all of us.
