I expect a good number of us will not be out on the town tonight and I for one don't have many real life friends where I now newly live so.....

CHEERS!!!!!

And now for my favourite joke........

There were two fish in a tank. One fish said to the other, you drive whilst I figure out how to fire this thing.

Happy New Year to all of you - mine passed here just as your DCs might have been considering starting a new day (aren't time zones odd things?).

Did nothing last night - DH played his bloody computer game, I hand held trained a new nurse for Bee, then sat on the sofa and continued to work on knitting a "proper" 4th Doctor scarf for DS (at it 3 days now, and I am only 15" into a 12'+ long scarf).

Up half the night with one nightmare after another (mine, not the DCs) and up for the day at 5am.

Spent the morning trying to do some creative accounting and robbing Peter to pay Paul so we don't lose any of the "important" things (like power and heat - DH is still out of work) and am still sitting around in my jammies.

If this is what 2013 is going to be like, I want out now. sad

Happy New Year grin

Happy New Year all. DS decided to have his quarterly melt-down at bedtime, so I've just sat down after settling him. Gin, gin sounds loverly.
Raising a glass to the people that I spend time with online, thank you for the ears as they don't seem to listen in RL.
2013 here we come

'Appy New Year when it 'Appens.

Staying with my parents. DS1 ignored his cousins, but DS2 played with my niece, who is the same age as a lot of his female friends at school, beautifully. He was really sociable and "chatted" with everyone. In the past he's just hidden and stimmed lots.

MovingOnNow Mon 31-Dec-12 22:34:17

Hi all! Kids asleep. Xmas decs taken down. Had a bit of a howl because my dad died the day we put them up. Had a lovely bubble bath and hair wash so feel much better now. Lying in bed watching Bridget jones. Going to pad downstairs soon and get some baileys :-)

Happy new year !
