The only way to launch into 2013 is with a run up. So why welcome in the new year with just a New Year’s Eve’s party when there are parties to go to on the eve of New Year’s Eve? That’s right, a New Year’s Eve Eve party. With a Psy lookalike guest in tow from Kuala Lumpar, I grabbed a few masks we had lying around the apartment and picked him up in a carriage…
First stop – golden painted nude beauties served up a feast, chameleons and snakes were passed around from guest to guest with popcorn and candyfloss a plenty. A quick refuel and we were on to New Years Eve with double denim outifts, a latex clad Superman, air guitar playing, a lot of hairspray and not leaving until we’d danced on stage as we had done the night before. It’s rude not to show your visitors a good time…
That’s why it’s taken until day two of 2013 after a crisp walk on Hampstead Heath and a good old roast dinner before booting up the laptop to report for duty!
It’s a good excuse to turn off the television too, so you can resist all the ‘new year, new you’ brainwashing adverts. I’m tempted to join the most insane 6 week weightloss program ever, sign up for the most successful dating website for marriage, and buy a special skin care package with a 60 day money back guarantee! Noooooo!!
If you’ve read this blog before, you’ll already know who my dream man is anyway. I don’t believe in punishment for overindulgence, so if you think you’ve had more than your share of mince pies – I highly recommend hitting the dance floor!
As for NY resolutions – quite frankly, I don’t make them. I have a moleskine and things constantly overspill from my brain onto the pages throughout the year. Once they are written down in my neatest handwriting, they soon get crossed off.
A few things you might be reading about…
- beekeeping classes to attend
- more barchick-ing
- launching a new website
- exploring shipwrecks in Cornwall
- an expedition to Antartica
- screenprinting in my new abode
- writing that screenplay…
But the new year celebrations are not over yet. The year of the snake is lurking around the corner bringing some good fortune.
I’m ready for it – are you?
