    New Years Eve 09/10

    Just been asked what I'm upto on New Years Eve... and to be perfectly honest... I don't have the foggiest. Is there anything descent on the box? or suggestions on what to do?

    It's also due to snow AGAIN apparently... dreading snow... broke laptop slipping on ice last week

    I was asked if I wanted to go out for a few in town with some mates but now I have sort of changed my mind, I am at work all day, I really just feel like chilling with a few close mates, I'd rather not have the hang over the following morning.

    I'm working New Years Eve, to top the old pay cheque up I am a Site Manger type person and we have a New Years Eve Dance in at work, so its open up (shift snow / ice from paths etc as appropriate) then lock-up etc after then in the very ungodly hours of New Years Day so no celebrating for me with alcoholic drinks this year. (This is all assuming the snow / ice doesn't return again and continues to melt!)

    I once read that "if the thought of the morning after put you off the night before"... it was a sign of being middle-aged.

    I've been middle-aged for a while... with occasional lapses

    Me too - very bored! Don't drink, so that sort of lapse is not on the cards but I am definitely in the market for some sort of excitement...

    I hate New Year's Eve - all that false bonhomie - and frankly 2010 looks like it is going to be a pig of a year for me - so I shall just spend the evening quietly with family and friends.

    I'm not a big new year fan. I'll probably be asleep before midnight!

    To be honest I always feel more like July is the end of a year and September the start of a new one (with lovely August in between - ahh the joys of term time contracts!) - probably means I've worked in education for too many years!

    I'm working till 10pm, then who knows. Probably end up doing nothing. Not really that much of a party animal.

    Back to the 'rents for me. Spent last W/E with them, but taking my daughter and B/F with me this time. Probably got he too much food route, possibly too much whisky with dad; it is quite traditional. A few of their neighbours will do the "first footing" thing which he introduced to them.

    Probably have Jools on the box.

    Shall be saving money and my sanity by staying in.

    Best way to see in the new year is a spot of Horizontal jogging.
