Smile What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

First of all, I'd like to wish everyone the year that they dream of - only good things in the coming year!!

I'm off to a colleague's party and I'm staying there tomorrow night, so no worries about how to get home
Hope you all have something planned and nobody is on their own.
And if you are on your own, I will raise a glass for you and wish you all the best at midnight.

i used to stay up and watch Clive James - hadnt even thought about what we will be doing. I guess go and grab some movies and a bottle wine.

Happy new year all!

Ahh! who knows what tomorrow will bring!!! Have wine, have beer, have wife and son and am in New Zealand. 2008 can only add to the great year for us 2007 has been.

Might just sit outside and watch the sun set on 2007 across Mana Island and the South Island... Cheers!!

The view you have is so amazing!

We actually don't have any plans. We were invited out to a pub in town tomorrow night, but don't have a babysitter so are a tad stuck.

Last year was spent playing Trivial Pursuit with my MIL ... so that wasn't exactly the most fun. (she was living with us for 4 months while her new house was built)

I fancy a game of Risk myself this year. I'll get Australasia and sit on Indonesia.

Any of you lot are more than welcome over here, but don't expect us to drive anywhere.

Himself will be working for a while as plumbers are needed in holiday season here big-time.

We are set to go to a party in Wakefield & hope to stop over the night to save the drive back. It's set to be a full house.

Trouble is that our ducklings are not at all well, so we may come back the same night to administer the anti-biotics.

No plans for us....small children and no babysitter so no choice really. I'll probably do grocery shopping tomorrow so maybe I'll pick up some extra little goodies... nice bottle of wine etc.....

Well, we're still undecided. Beach party or fireworks down the Mount? Which, I hasten to add, is an alcohol free zone ... But then it does ensure there's little trouble and it stays family friendly. So, one of the two.

Hi Sarah, don't seem to have caught up with you recently.
Have a great New Year and I hope all goes well with your parents' flight
