We had a pleasant family meal last night but I have to admit I found it hard to get excited about the new year.
It may have something to do with the economic problems – which seem set to become worse before they get better – and the terrible collapse of the pound which has cut our income by a third since we moved here.
Anyway, my half -formed resolutions are all about belt-tightening which, to look on the bright side may make losing weight a bit easier!
The cats had a great time last night. Parsley polished off the remaining prawns from Jay’s canapes
and Willow enjoyed playing Trivial Pursuits.
The evening went something like this:
melon in port
continued game of Trivial Pursuits we started the night before
Vegetable lasagne and salad
finished Trivial Pursuits
coffee and panetone
Just in time for French New Year Celebrations
and then we stayed up to see the English new Year in, an hour later.
I, for one, was certainly ready to hit the hay after that. Willow was pretty worn out as well.
Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy 2009 .
If we can throw in a little bit of prosperity as well so much the better.
