So, 2006 indeed. I must say, it's been bloomin fantastic so far, as I have done precisely NO work and precisely NO study. No, instead I have been trying to come to terms, yet again, with how amazingly sexy my *cough* is, as pictured below on a hill that overlooks my home county of Herefordshire.
Anyway, I will tell you all about it over the next few days. But for now, that's your lot, as I need to go to bed and dream of my cutey, who I hope is sleeping peacefully 3 hours north of here.
New Year's Eve
Seems like it was last year.
As is traditional, the day hosted the the big Tame Family Annual Gathering. Initially pretty stressful (as family gatherings can be), everyone mellowed out as the evening wore on. In fact, one of our company got a little too mellow, following in my Christmas Eve footsteps and getting completely trashed on gin, locking themselves in the bathroom and causing a huge flood. Hardly surprising considering the stress they were under.
My baby and I didn't really see any of that though, as we were in bed by 11.15pm. "lightweights!" you may cry, but I tell you, the fireworks in the valley below went off at just the right moment - the perfect way to see in the new year tee hee...
New Year's Day was a lovely affair. Woken from our slumber at 10.15am by siblings singing 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' outside the caravan door, after morning necessities, slowly hauled ourselves into the house, just in time for a fantastic Christmas / Birthday / New Year celebratory dinner (NYDay being Dad's Bday too). The meal, which mum had been planning for a few years, was bloomin gorgeous, and everyone was happy and joyful and larks sang their little voices out, before dad managed to catch them and carve their heads off.
I received some lovely presents... but the lovliest was the mere presence of my *cough* (here seen holding my nephew edmund).
The evening was spent... er, it escapes me, but I'm pretty sure it was all very nice and groovy..
It really has done me the world of good, having this break from it all. I feel super relaxed for the first time since last summer. Hurray for Holidays I say. Raaaa!
