Big Grin Happy New Year!

Hi everyone! Right now it's about 10:15pm here.
I would just like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year.

(I guess I should be saying Happy Turnover, shouldn't I?)

Happy New Year or Turnover, it really doesn't matter.

All the best to all for the coming year!

I've stopped staying up for fireworks. I find that the noise annoys me more, especially when I think of all the dogs that get distressed and panic, all for our ephemeral pleasure. Last night, there was some fireworks at the local club, about a block away from me (as per usual), and I could hear the dogs for an hour afterwards, distressed and agitatedly barking.

If 2006 treated me more gently, I'd fall asleep more. Not that I need that--I've slept enough, and napped more than enough, last year!

If anything, I hope that this year treats everyone here, and their families, friends and loved ones, much better than the last five years. At least.

2006 has been a good year already. At a book sale, as part of a deal for about $25 dollars, I got, along with 2 poetry books, Partnership, Crisis on Doona, Treaty Planet, Dinosaur Planet, and Survivors (Dinosaur Planet II)!

Woohoo!

With all of my new Australian friends, I found it quite lovely that the first New year celebration that my husband and I saw was the one from Sydney. It was a beautiful display, over the water.

I actually found it a bit of a let down from last years firworks. They didn't have all the sparks raining down from the bottom of the bridge.
