The morning after the night before.......

Last night we went to celebrate New Year with our long long time friends Madeline, John and Grace. Every New year for as long as I can remember we have been to them or them to us. Lately since the kids have been older we have had a theme and last nights was 'Chavs' . 
So bring on the baseball caps, chunky chains, tattoos, red lip stick. tracky bottoms, high heel shoes, the works!!! 

I went as an over made up, over blinged, pregnant chav wearing my PJ's for a trip to Tescos!!! Tom gelled his hair and had his Dollar pendant on proud display.

We were very pleased when Simon Cowell and Elvis Presley turned up!!

Followed by Peter Andre and Sheryl Cole.

Vicky Beckham and Sharon Osbourne came along.

Brucie turned up although he was struggling after a number of years in Strictly, he was knackered!!!

The best news of the evening was that there was a reconciliation!!!

Peter and Jordan got back together!!!!

Anyway we drunk a large amount of alcohol, feasted on Chinese and cheesecake. Experienced some of Madeline's traditional cooking. (she did us proud by burning one of the puddings, starting the year as she means to go on!!!) At midnight John carefully walked down the garden (avoiding copious piles of dog poo, that's what happens when you are looking after two poo machines) to set off our fireworks, a 30 shot spooky firework and a 25 shot Bull in a China Shop. The second one was extremely loud (like us) and the first one was not ghostly or spooky or even able to do 30 shots, but hey it was fun!!!

This morning we all got up late and I made sure I drank loads of water to try and avoid a hang over, which was successful. I now feel a bit washed out but I think that's because I am now knocking on to be doing all this hard core drinking!!!!

This afternoon we collected Dad from hospital, he is feeling much better and is just a little sore and uncomfortable from the operation, he is now at home and will have his clips out next week sometime. I just want to thank Kate for all of her assistance over the past few nights and I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!!!!

Went to bed at ten Liz, so ill. I am full of cold, coughing, spluttering and aching, I have been like this for a few days. Colin stayed dry because we wanted the girls to be able to call us if taxis back home were required. An all round wonderful celebration as you can see.

I take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to you and yours, especially good health to your Mum and Dad. Take care. xxx
