Happy New Year! It is the first day of 2011, and it started off brilliantly with some wonderful friends. We went to bed at 2:30 in the morning and didn’t arise until nearly noon. After a hearty brekkie I took my daughter off shopping only to find the shops were all closed. Came back and baked Lebkuchen with my son from the Hairy Bikers cookbook that his Nani bought him (tip: go easy on the ginger), followed by a phone call to my mum to wish her a Happy new Year only find she was out. Followed that with a call to my sister and she wasn’t answering either so left a message. The house is filled with the smell of baking and coffee, everyone’s smiling and even the dog is calm. A wonderful day!
Now, the sun is dipping low over the horizon, the kids are ensconced in the sitting room with their Dad, a bottle of champagne, box of chocolates and ‘Dance Central‘ on the Xbox Kinect is set to roll – Jay Sean is flavour of the month, by the way. Adieu until I log in again.
