Happy New Year everyone!! Mad and John came over last night, we have been taking visits in turn since the kids were little, we were working it out last night and this must be our 17th year, we started after it became clear that lugging the kids back home in the early hours of the morning was having a detrimental effect on the amount of sleep that we were getting, that and the increased alcohol consumption was having an general bad effect on us all. Last night it was our turn to be the hosts. As the years have gone by and the kids have grown up we have found that we are not always able to stay over, we all have jobs and there is always someone who will be working on new years day. This year it is Madeline's turn to work. We celebrated with a Chinese, a few games and then pink champagne at midnight. We had a pack of the most ferocious and temperamental party poppers, some failed to go off, those that did went with a real bang that kicked back and burnt your fingers, I am sure we had a duff batch!!
So I hope 2009 is a great year for you!!
