Jen and I don’t do new New Years Eve. No parties. No kissing and hugging a hundred people. No champagne. Instead we just stayed home, watched Regis (get well soon Dick!), drank tea, watched the ball drop, kissed each other, and went to bed. The perfect end to the year.
So what did we achieve in 2004? Well we had an amazing honeymoon. We painted the bathroom and survived. We got someone else to paint the rest of the house. We became bloggers. Jen became a blog addict. We gained a nephew. We made some new friends. We hosted a Lord of the Rings marathon. I cooked some new things. We bought new rugs (they really tie the rooms together) and new furniture. We hosted and played many pub quizzes but hardly won any. I managed to grow a few vegetables and Jen filled the garden with many pretty flowers. I wrote and implemented a web based purchasing card management system. Jen sold lots of cards. We did our bit to try to stop the re-election of war-mongering religious nutjobs. We failed. We gave as generously as we could to worthy causes. We arranged and executed a pretty damn good Christmas dinner.
Yep, that’s about it. Oh and we procrastinated about stuff. A lot.
Happy new year everyone. Let’s hope this one is a little more peaceful and enlightened.
