Happy new year all of you!!
You do know what they say - Whatever you do on the 1st of the year.. thats what you end up doing most of the year!! I try to do nice things on 1st Jan every year.. even though the year(s) never turn out to be as fun!
If I think of the year gone past - while we had a barbeque party on 31st night going right into 1st Jan, I hardly partied last year.. rather I was barbequed (!!!) royally through the year.. the first 6 months the most painful!!
Even then, I would still like to believe in it.... It is a nice thing to believe in too!!! So I like cramming the day with things that I like - in the hope I spend time doing what I like through the year.
So what have I been doing or plan to do today?
a) Last night I read a book untill 12. Thats how I welcomed the year!!
b) Fell into deep sleep waking up only at 10am!
c) Went out for a long long lunch - 2-5pm. I tried everything on the buffet.. well almost everything, I really could not bring myself to try oysters or octopus. A was game enough to try oysters and he had about 4-5 of those!! I tried all the dishes though - MC australia in the back of my mind :) Pic of remains of the dessert below. One of things below is profiteroles (so what if I had to google the spelling) - I picked it up purely because of MC australia!!!!!
d) Wanted to catch a movie in the theatre desperately. But did not happen as some friend turned up. Damn.. Should have gone to the theatre today!!
e) Wanted to and I am putting in a post so that I post through the year!!
f) Sleep a lot
g) Spend time with my husband
h) Speak to family on either side and close friends!!
i) Listen to good music
j) Watch nice romantic movies
k) Not work at all :p
l) Probably buy books (though right now it seems difficult to fit into the evening)
Yup, thats about it. My ultra small list :))
