Yikes! So, another year has gone by. It seems only yesterday that I woke up on New Year’s Day 2012 and cried as I thought I had the year wrong as how could I possibly have got to be 35 years old? I have spent the year resigning myself to the fact that getting older is definitely one thing I can’t change and getting used to life back in the UK. I imagine I will have a few tears tomorrow morning as I go into my 36th year. Does this mean I will have to start growing up? No, I didn’t think so either.
I am not a big fan of the frivolity of New Year’s and I’m sure you will remember from last year’s New Year blog entry, I believe that if you want to make changes in your life, you should do that whenever you want to and not put pressure on yourself to make sweeping changes just because of one particular date. OK OK, I will stop being a misery guts (seems like I am acting my old lady age!). For the first time in 3 years we are in the UK for New Year so won’t be on the beach in Goa surrounded by hundreds of people and many many dodgy fireworks. We could try and recreate the scene but I don’t know hundreds of people and I’m sure that those I do know won’t want to come and hang out on a freezing Southend-on-Sea beach and I am guessing that there may be something to do with the law which prevents me randomly letting off fireworks on the beach. I will just have to make do with some delicious wine (there are some definite advantages to being in England) and hanging out with my family which will be great. That is supposing I stay awake until midnight – something I am not well known for!
Happy Happy New Year! Have fun! Be safe (especially if you are in Goa and are near any fireworks).
See you next year! (I will never tire of that joke.)
