We’ve finally arrived at the start of 2012, and what sort of year does it hold in store for each and every one of us? There will be a few who believe that we will not get to see the end of the year as some global catastrophe will befall the planet, well either that or the Mayans decided not to carry on with their calendar!!
Watched the firework display in London on television and have to admit I thought I was watching V For Vendetta when all the fireworks started erupting from Big Ben and even through it was a great display I do have to wonder how much the display cost and more importantly who footed the bill?
I must be coming up with a new way to celebrate the new year as for the last two years I have spent the evening cleaning up and New Years Eve 2011 was spent no differently with me still going through some of the stuff that I have removed from the shed at my mothers. I have found a new home for my collection of Doctor Who books and magazines, having cleared out my old craft magazines – they are already loaded into the car ready to be given away.
I was not able to save my radio controlled Dalek – the moment it had been thrown into the shed was the moment it was destined to be thrown into the bin.
New Years Day was spent rather quietly at home where I cleared out the fridge – no more turkey for me which is rather shameful as I could have made a batch of turkey curry and frozen it for later in the year with the amount of turkey I had left over.
Managed to watch a few films during the day, saw It’s a Wonderful Life and The Muppet Christmas Carol – both fantastic films and two more films that I have managed to watch this holiday season.
Washed the car today and will have to remember to not use the jet wash after a stinking 4×4 has used it as I had to drive over a pile of mud which had been taken off the said 4×4 so I spent a few minutes just pressure washing the ground to clear all the mud out of the way. Here’s hoping I will be able to wash the car at least once a month.
