Enjoy!

I've just had my mini bottle/glass of Baileys that I was going to see the NY in with but my mood dropped a lot from earlier so I'm not planning on intentionally staying up to see the NY in. I took sleeping tablets last night so slept well but only have 2 doses a week to prevent them being ineffective so tonight will be without so we'll see whether I'm asleep or awake. I just had a lovely phone call from dd that was so lovely, she just wanted to wish me a happy NY now as they'll be out clubbing later. A lovely chat.

So having had my small Baileys I now have no alcohol here either, started the new year with clean living though I ate very healthily today.

To our Australian friends, Happy New Year! My foster sister's photos of the fireworks in Sydney that they watch annually from an idyllic beach were spectacular and I never feel photos do them justice so they must have been amazing.

The rest of you will receive your greetings tomorrow :D

I have been having as many healthy meals in between all the unhealthy ones as possible, but they have been outnumbered. Back to green smoothies on Tuesday!

Happy New year form me zoo. And yes BBHG, the fireworks in Sydney are wonderful, even if I have lived in Melbourne for 19 years , it is still home to me. But the idillic beach is a bit so a furphy, it is very crowded and you need to get there before breakfast the day before to get a good spot. But nothing beats watching the fireworks on the Bridge.

Our Lord reigns for ever and ever.

They were at Dee Why, is that the main beach? They got there at 6pm along with picnic supper and in their photos the beach looked empty at that time. Maybe that's not the main beach or they just got a good spot!
