All Is Quiet

Evening all.

We are having quite a lovely first day of the New Year, curled up in front of the fire with our books, a Jamie Oliver inspired steak sandwich dinner is forthcoming as are wine and cheese.

Christmas was hectic, frazzled, and whilst not entirely unpleasant, kind of tiring. I was home for around twelve hours before I was back at work on Monday, which has been busy, but actually quite good fun. I had a smug moment as I was dancing around the kitchen, making chocolate muffins and thinking “Hee! I’m getting paid for this!”. By Friday evening though, the last thing I felt like doing was heading off to a Hogmanay bash. I’m glad we did though, as our charming friends threw a splendid gathering, which was incredibly chilled out and low key.

It was an honest joy to wake in our own bed this morning, safe in the knowledge that there was no need to bloody drive anywhere, and I was entirely revived by the holy trinity of coffee, bacon and irn bru. If the rest of the year goes as well as today, I shall be a happy little camper indeed.

No further introspection or resolutions for me today. Instead, as my sister said earlier – Happy New Year. May 2011 be full of fun and frolics.

  1. Wishing you a wonderful 2011. I had a good chuckle at your mention of the Holy Trinity. I second that, although Irn Bru can be hard to get here. And I would be chastised by Aussies everywhere if I didn’t include Vegemite somewhere along the line. It’s not to everyone’s taste but is fabulous for dealing with a hangover.

    Have a great New Year. All the best!!

    • Happy New Year to you too!! I never really “got” the taste of Vegemite while I was in Australia, but then Irn Bru is a pretty acquired taste itself. Only drink it when feeling a little delicate, otherwise the magic wears off!
