Ever since having kids New Year has always taken on a bit of a different aspect. The days of partying hard for the 31st are well and truly gone..also combined with the fact that one of our daughters has her birthday on the 31st. Auld lang syne has long since been replaced by a bit of an early night and sometimes a kids celebration with a ‘fake’ midnight 😉 (that worked before we had one who could tell the time!)
So our family tradition on new year is to get out and go for a walk and thankfully we have some good friends that share that desire. So this year was no excuse and amazingly it didn’t actually rain! It was very very windy and muddy though! Home for toad in the hole and kids settling in for a movie. A good day and start to the new year.
