Happy New Year


As I know some of my blogging friends will be entering into the new year before I do, better post this early!

Looks like we’ll be having a windy and rainy New Year’s Eve here. Been raining all day today too, and most of the December snow is gone, even from the lawns.

As has become a tradition since more than a decade, I will be spending the Eve with the same friends as usual, at my place. Two single ‘girlfriends’ who used to be my neighbours, the sister of one of them, and since a couple of years also the mother of the other friend. I’ll prepare a quiche (or two) earlier in the day, and they’ll bring salad and some other stuff. We always watch a film… Usually a ‘feel good’ kind, not too heavy or complicated. I have one in mind that I’ve not seen myself yet and I hope the others haven’t either. (If they have, we should be able to find something else in my DVD-collection.)

I wish you all a Happy New Year!


  1. sounds wonderful and i had not thought about the other half of the world celebrating before us... Happy New Year and enjoy your friends

  2. Happy New Year to you, too, Monica! Spending the evening with friends is always a good idea :-)

  3. Sounds like a nice Year Year's Eve tradition with friends and a movie.

    I love Quiche and make them quite often.

  4. Aha! I'm on the last day already. Thank you for your kind wishes, and please consider them returned!
    I am having an unusually quiet evening with one elderly (89) single friend, also watching some movie. Possibly 'Fishing in the Yemen', because she hasn't seen it. And because it's nice.

  5. Happy New Year, Monica. I hope you enjoy your evening. I'll see the new year in with family and neighbours.

  6. Four and a half hours to go to 2013 as I write this. I am just off up to The House to share an evening with friends. No one is sure who is coming. It could be 6, 16 or 60. Togs (swimming costumes to you non-Kiwis) optional (except for children - it's compulsory so that they are not glued to the TY or Play Station).

  7. Sounds like a great way to bring in the New year, with old friends! Happy New Year, Monica!!

  8. Happy New Year, enjoy your evening, we're having a quiet one with a good or at least funny DVD.

  9. Have a lovely joyous evening and a peaceful new year.

    All the best, Carol

  10. Happy New Year to you too!
    I hope the movie was good!
