Happy New Year!
I celebrated it rather modestly this year with copious amounts of red wine, Scene It and some Indian snacks. At midnight, we trooped out onto the streets of Pontcanna to wish everyone a happy new year, but there was not a soul to be seen. I thought it was rather sad. My mum is full of stories from the North East about warm gatherings, and strangers coming in from off the street to join in on the merriment. But down South, there was not even a squeak of collaborative joy.
Onto Cathedral Road, armed with a bottle of champagne and our best singing voices we attempted to sing Auld Lang Syne. When I woke up the next morning with a fuzzy head and as memories began to dribble back down into consciousness, I decided to make one of my new years resolutions to learn the words of this famous song.
Other New Year’s Resolutions:
2. To get a proper job by the end of the year.
3. To spend more time cooking.
4. To keep running at least twice a week.
5. To go on holiday somewhere exciting.
6. To move out.
7. To stop writing blog posts in an effort to put off work.
