Happy New Year

Christmas decorations in a roundabout I passed on my way back from town yesterday afternoon - photo taken with my phone. (The building in the background is a school.) As you can see, we still have some snow and ice on the ground... The temperature has stayed close to zero (freezing point) since the snowfall on Sunday. Thawing a little in the daytime, but colder at night.

As some of you know, I had the misfortune of breaking a tooth on Christmas Eve. No pain involved, though, so I survived the weekend without "serious" problems. Phoned my dentist on Monday morning, got an appointment for Tuesday afternoon, and he was able to fix it in one sitting; so that's behind me now. I hope it's not tempting fate (or the tooth fairy) to say that I'm hoping not to have to see the dentist again at least until next year!

New Year's Eve tomorrow I'll be spending as usual with a handful of friends in my own home - a tradition we've been keeping up for 16 years in a row now. (Three of us were neighbours living in the same building back when it began.)

I wish us all a Happy New Year 2016!

  1. Sorry about your tooth, but glad you could get it fixed so quickly. Do have a very Happy New Year.

  2. Enjoy celebrating with your friends, Monica, and I, too, hope that you won't have to see your dentist for a long time!
    The school is surely closed for the holidays, isn't it? But it looks as if there are lights on inside. Maybe some rooms are used for other purposes when no classes are held.
    Happy New Year to you!

    1. You're perceptive as always, Meike! Yes, the pupils are no doubt on holiday. Not sure the same applies to all the staff, though. I suppose some teachers and admin staff (as well as cleaners and caretakers) may have things to finish off from last term, or prepare for the next.

  3. Have a wonderful year Monica.

  4. Happy New Year. Have fun tonight with your friends.
    I really enjoy your blog and look forward every day to reading about your life on the other side of the planet.

    1. Thank you, Louise. I too find that blogging and reading blogs is a great way of learning about different parts of the world, and different ways of life.
