Huge excitement yesterday when we explained to The Urchin what this “New Ear Eve” business was all about. In his 5 year old mind, it was pretty great. We’ll take a nap, stay up until TOMORROW and then you’ll get a birthday! (We didn’t actually say that but that’s what he heard) He was a bit put out when he realised he had to wait until August for said birthday because he really wants to be six. His friend Thomas is already six. It’s like, bigger than five.
My geeks. I heart them
After enjoying several performances of The Urchin’s NYE circus inspired glowstick show and then drinking more than I have in about two years, I went to bed, the floor spinning. Oy. I was pleased it was sunny today so I could wear sunglasses and not look like a tool for doing so. It was really nice to get some fresh air, to wear some proper clothes (skinny jeans – the irony!) after a week of slippers and cosy loungewear. Don’t be fooled by the beach backdrop. It was bloody freezing. We managed 20 minutes before we dashed back to Grandma’s for hot chocolate and another turkey dinner.
How was the first day of 2013 for you?
