We stayed up until 3am this morning!! The last few minutes of 2007 we spent switching between Jools Holland's Hootenanny and the Hogmanay Show. I sent texts to friends and then nearly missed midnight!!! :D
As we didn't have a chance to see the fireworks last year I took again a photo of the fireworks on TV (sad, I know... ;) ) and then hoped to see some fireworks going off at our neighbours ... but everything was dark & quiet. Wonder if they are in "hiding" like us from Hogmanay "revellers" and "First Footers"??
I dashed over into the study to get some shots of the official fireworks on Corstorphine Hill, but ... it was raining and the window was all blurry ... so I went back into the bedroom and then we saw fireworks going off just across the burn behind the block of flats. Lovely colours :) Fife looked like at war - eerie yellow/orangy lighting, fog and the sound of fireworks going off!!!
We then decided to watch "We Are Marshall" on DVD - the latest addition to our Gridiron DVD collection. It's a VERY good movie - even better than "Gridiron Gang" or "Remember the Titans". Based on a true story about Marshall University who lost their Football Team, Coaches, Teachers, Press and Fans in 1970 (plane crash - no survivors).
Jumping to today ... have been sleeping until 10:30am and then watched TV until about 1pm (they always show the "alten Kamellen" (don't ask me what the word in English is for that!!) on New Year's Day ... I watched "Pollyanna" and then "McLintock". ) then started clearing some space in the bedroom...
Did one layout from the Christmas Journal (and no, I am nowhere near catching up yet but will put some good use to Friday after some housework ;) ) and then it was time for dinner (leftovers from yesterday's Raclette). Did the washing up and when I switched on the dishwasher we got another error message ("E4" this time) from that blimming thing!!! DH and I agreed that we'll demand an exchange from Curry's. Maybe for a German dishwasher????? :o
I'll try another layout and then am off to bed for reading/TV at 9pm ... a colleague is going to pick me up around 7am tomorrow for work - It's Sunday Bus service and probably the only way for me to get to the other side of town.... :o
Oh - do I have any New Year Resolutions? NOT YET ... and I am not sure I will bother.... :(
Today's layout was prompt 18 - "Christmas Dinner"
