New Year's Eve 1993: fancy dress party in the local pub

I missed it! I missed the change from the old into the new. I never heard the fireworks sound in 2010. I didn't have a glass of champagne to celebrate. And the reason?

Over the last two days I have been feeling a bit under the weather. A headache that had taken up residence in my head despite several attempts to flush him out with aspirins. Normally I visit friends of mine on New Year's Eve Eve (December 30th if you don't want to do the maths), because their eldest daughter and my sugardaughter V celebrates her birthday on December 31st. I was glad I didn't go this year, because I was nearly looking cross-eyed! And I cannot look cross-eyed!!

Yesterday I did make it to the shops, my sister wanted proper knitting needles instead of those awful British ones which are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too short to knit with properly. I wanted leggings so I wouldn't freeze in my uniform and I wanted to get home again, because it was cold and I had a headache!

Fortunately the headache finally decided to leave after getting attacked by yet more aspirins: enough was enough. I then watched 'A Carol Christmas', yet another take on the classic tale by Charlie D. And I have to admit, it was a good version. After that I zapped a bit, saw Minnellium by the Dinnerladies (Victoria Wood is just brilliant!), caught a film and had some nibbles. But at a quarter past eleven, I had had enough. So, I went to bed!

2010 has started...


  1. Here's to headaches leaving us.

  2. Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! And may it be headache free!

    Ik lag al om half tien ofzo in bed. Klein griepje, enorme hoofdpijn. Nou, dat schept toch een enorme band ;-) Ben wel wakker geworden van 't vuurwerk. Even. En daarna maar met m'n hoofd onder m'n dekbed en een buik vol neurofennetjes. Anyway, je krijgt vast heel veel mannelijke volgers erbij, misschien wel een paar leuke Canadezen?, als je die foto in je 'header' zet. Wuppie is leuk hoor, maar je moet natuurlijk wel prioriteiten stellen ;-)

  3. Mara, Me too - maybe we had the same bug even though we live a half a world away!

    Happy New Year and hope you're feeling better soon!!!

  4. Glad your feeling better. Sorry you missed it! I always see a bit of a wild side when you show pictures from the past!!!
