We had a fab new years eve and day. we went to our friends’ house TB, played lots of games, laughed a lot, ate well, and drank in moderation . We all missed SB, but were sure that she was happy in Spain, and celebrating new years eve over there with grapes. it was great sharing this time together. now our kids are older, with some now in school, always doing multiple events at weekends and evenings, we seem to have less of these relaxed meetings than in the past. must try and build in more socialisation into our lives!
