We decided that last night .... New Years Eve would be a bit too much for Nigel, so we left him at home with his little wooden mouse and a trusted babysitter ……
…. while we excitedly donned our Scottish gay apparel
….. which was much admired by the ladies …
…..although, despite all the admiring glances, we did still seem to have to partner each other quite a lot during the energetic reels and jigs …..!!
However we had a most wonderful time with our sporrans madly flying akimbo (and occasionally getting tangled up with each other) and the fresh breeze caused by the rampant flinging of our kilts was erm ….. fresh and liberating?!!!
We also quaffed some fine champagne with a packet of Walkers crisps to quench our thirsts after much festive dancing.
….. and then Darrell became a little emotional and wanted to gaze at the stars ……
….. we sat for what seemed to be hours just musing about what 2012 would have in store for us ….. and decided to get a Sunday Supplement Magazine with Mystic Meg and our Stars in for the year, to give us a hint as to what to look out for.
Then after a head clearing walk it was nice to come home and share our first “cup o' kindness for auld lang syne” of 2012 together as our feet (and heads) were killing us!
xxxx HAPPY NEW YEAR xxxx
xxxx HAPPY 2012 xxxx
