It’s NYE here at the moment. I’m on the couch, doing nothing. Fella and I are gonna eat pasta, chocolate and go crazy with one alcoholic beverage. Woohoo

SO and I are going to be enjoying some wine and champagne, smoked salmon, and cheese. It’ll be nice to just stay in. Getting into the city for NYE is kind of a hassle and I work in the city until 8pm- wouldn’t want to rush home, get ready and go back with all the traffic.

It’s NYE for me too. 

We’re on holiday in Sydney, Australia so we’ve been down by Sydney Harbour Bridge having dinner and drinks, waiting for the (worlds biggest!) fireworks display at midnight. I went to take a photo of FI-to-be and I, only to realise I’d left the SD card back at the hotel in my laptop…clever. 

So, now we’re back at the hotel and he’s having a nap, so I thought I’d jump on weddingbee before we head back down to the chaos.

I really wanted to go out and do something, but he’s working today, and I know he’ll be tired when he gets home. Plus it’s expensive and a hassle to get a train into London. Everywhere else is ticketed, so it’s too late for that.

I think we may just go out to eat and I’ll have a drink at home, and we’ll ring in the new year on the couch. Not what I wanted, but oh well.

A group of us had planned to stay on an island. On the ferry on the way over here the hostel called to say they were closed. So we did a day trip to the main sights. We then took the bus to the ferry in the wrong direction to get to the ferry terminal off the island. We are now on the last possible bus heading across the whole island which will get us to the last ferry 3 minutes before departure. If successful, I plan on going home and eating decadent food with my neighbour, while the others party in the city (Osaka or Kobe).

If we don’t succeed, we will try to get to the other terminal and take the other ferry, meaning I will be forced to spend the night in Osaka because I will miss last train home, and sleep in a love hotel because they allow groups (cause that’s not suspicious – likely to be themed as well…), so it cuts down on our accomodation costs.

Or be stuck on the island!!!

 

Its 7pm NYE at the moment!

Blowing all obligations off to have a cozy night in with fancy foods and drink, just the two of us.

We’ve done the big party thing, and the small gathering thing, before, and those were fun because we felt like them at the time, but right now, after a hectic Christmas pleasing everyone else and being slaves to the clock, we want some quality, low-key, “us time.”

By The Way I just realized it’s kinda ironic that we’re celebrating new years by not being “slaves to the clock,” lol! We’ll still do a countdown when the time comes, of course, it’s just that we won’t plan around it, or anyone else’s schedule!

For the last 5 years I’ve had to work New Year’s Day for a few hours so I tend to try to take it easy NYE. This year Fiance will also have to be in top shape as well for the Levee at our yacht club. We’ll be grill streaks and garlic shrimp and sharing some wine and special bubbly. I’m not one who likes going out on the town much in the winter anyhow so it suits me fine. I look forward to the day we have a house and can host NYE dinner parties again.

We are going to a bottle exchange and then probably to a bar with some friends, depending on what time it ends.

We got free tickets to “The Keilidh” at the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay street party so I’m doing my hair, getting dressed up warm (cute Harris tweed skirt and cashmere sweater with thick tights and knee-high boots) and heading into town to meet Darling Husband and heading out to go dancing.

Tomorrow we’re staying in and I’ve made a home-made steak pie to have whilst I get over the hangover.

Were getting  dressed up and taking a cab downtown to watch the strawberry drop and go to a few of our favorite bars. It’s my DH’s birthday so were getting ‘classy drunk’ on champagne and martinis lol.

It’s almost 9pm here.  Someone decided it would be a good idea to go to a firework display.  Which would be great, on telly.  I was hit by a firework when I was younger, and have had panic attacks around the ever since.  Eight minute show.  Thousands of people.  And nowhere inside to hide.  I’m literally sitting here in tears, shaking at the thought of it.  But I have no choice (it would seriously ruin everyone elses NYE if I choose not to go), trying to chill the f out.
