Good morning everyone and a Happy New Year!
Last night my OH decided we needed a party after the last horrible year! No big meal just lots of nibbles set out to pick at as we wanted, music and dancing in very short bursts! Even the cat was waltzed around the room at one stage!
I did manage to stay awake this year for the first time in ages to see in the new year even if it was sitting in bed with a glass of fizz watching the fireworks through the window!
Late up today but OH has already got a beef casserole on the go for tonight, been for the papers and made me 2 cups of tea, I knew there was a reason love him!
Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

Good afternoon Mike and every one who posts. It's a nice bright day here in Co Durham,it's warmed up a bit. I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope we have a better one this year

It was the same here Ash, although the boats are smaller - oil rig support vessels. My late DP and I used to stand outside to listen to them and watch the firework displays dotted around the local towns. We would then walk round to the front of the house and look at the stars (no light pollution from the town an port there) before "letting the New Year in" by the front door.

Oh dear Oldbut that`s not good news. Fingers crossed with you.

Happy New Year 2021. I pray this year is a fruitful and better one for us all and that the Virus moves away from the UK forever.

Ashcombe, in your area, does it rain a lot? And how hot does it get in Summer months? I am looking for a bungalow to buy as I am retired and want out of London and the Counties. I love the cold, so your comment about it being -2 is attractive to me. But I don't like very hot sunny weather. If you can spare a few minutes, please tell me more about Torbay for a mixed race 67 year old. Thank you for obliging me.

Have a lovely day with your boy grandmattie I feel your joy having not seen much of mine for a while. Thank you to all of the gns who have lifted me daily over this awful emotional year. I hope 2021 is good for all of us healing and hopeful and most importantly healthy. Having a lazy day after a long wine New Year’s Eve. Which was lovely. Take care all. X

Happy New Year from a cold overcast North Cambs , we had a quiet evening here and went to bed early . We were woken at midnight by one small session of fireworks which was nice really as it made us feel like there was life out there .
Keep safe everyone and lets all hope for a spring that brings some good things to enjoy.

A Happy New Year to all on this thread from this ‘lurker’ in a freezing cold West Herts. It’s been a privilege to read your comings and going’s, your sadnesses and joys and I wish you all every blessing for 2021.

Good afternoon everyone.It's chilly here in Sherwood but dry and bright I hope you are all keeping well. Hoping for a better year. I actually stayed up to see the new year in . I watched Jools Holland Hootenanny l really enjoyed it. I though it was better than other years as there were no silly drunk guests making fools of themselves. Lots of good music and memories from his archives. I would love to see him and his orchestra and fabulous singer Ruby Turner. They have been to the concert hall here in Nottingham in the past perhaps l will get the chance this year.
