Our New Years Celebrations… or lack thereof.

4 Jan

I have never really been excited about celebrating the new year. I tend to be the sort of person who thinks of it as just another day… you know, one of those boring ones! Andrew however, has always wanted to celebrate, or ATLEAST stay up to midnight, even if he’s just at home while he does it.

This year, my mums friend from Victoria came to visit. She arrived at 11pm on the 31st of december, and since Andrew and I both love her we were going to go with my mum and stepdad to pick her up. So we weren’t intending to really celebrate the new year, but we were going to stay up for it.

So it gets to be about 7.30 and we are both sitting on the couch, Andrew reading while I blog stalk. Mum was due to pick us up at 10pm.  Andrew decides to move to the bedroom… and at about 8.30 he FALLS ASLEEP! I was shocked, but I figured I’d wake him up at 9.30 and he’d come to the airport with me, but when I do he tells me that he’s too tired to come with me. I threatened to tell his mum, because she is really enthusiastic about new years and would be quite appalled. He begged me in a tired, whingey voice not to, and then went back to sleep, and stayed that way untill 7am the next morning!

I ended up taking the little girl instead of Andrew.

It was a great long weekend with Rebecca from Victoria. We went for a long walk, had good conversations and went shopping. I actually bought clothes in real life! I usually only buy clothes on ebay because its easier, cheaper and there are no patronizing shop keepers.

So even though our New Years celebration was not what you would call a celebration, I loved it and would rather do it every year than go out and dance about untill the morning light.
