2008 and 2009 New Year's Eves

2009 New Year's Eve will be hubby and I and a bottle of wine.... Christmas Day is with his sister and hubby in Kent, England. New Year's Eve will be an early one this year as we fly out early on the 1st Jan to South Africa for nearly a month!

We will have belated sunny Christmas and mum's 60th in the mountains and Kruger National park - absolute bliss.

2008 New Year's Eve we arrived in New York City ON the evening (madness!), really struggled to get to our hotel (btwn Times Square and Central park), and it was a tad noisier than it will be this year ;)

What were you up to 2008 and what will you be up to 2009 Christmas and New Year's Eve?


  1. We stayed at home in 2008 - and STRUGGLED to stay up til midnight to watch the ball drop, but we did make it. This year, we don't have any plans yet. I'm guessing we'll probably stay home again. That's fine with me. I like being a homebody in the cold weather - getting all cozy inside the house. Boy, this makes me sound boring!

  2. No! haha that just makes you normal ;) I am so looking forward to my quiet night in this year!

    Thanks for the visit. We'll be in Kent on Christmas day too and then Hampshire for New Year. Lovely photos and blog, we've been to SA a few times and love it so much. Lucky you for New Year!

  4. Hey, I'll look our for you in Kent mama! ;)

    South Africa is a special country, has been through loads and has come so far in a relatively short period of time. I know I am biased, but I am very proud of her.

    Thanks for your encouraging coment :)

  5. I LOVE the traffic photo with the green light in the foreground! Nice job. Last year holidays?-- Skiing in Wisconsin. This year--relatives visiting. Kind of nice to hang back for a change. They love to explore Chicago...

  6. Thanks a lot Anthony! I love photography.. and it's not hard to take a good pic in such a city :)

    I agree - a quiet Christmas is always a good thing.
