After a hell of a lot of decision making, questioning the point of everything and “what ifs”, me and Matthew eventually decided that New Year’s Eve is better spent in the company of ourselves and our cats.
Instead, we bought ourselves a bottle of Jägermeister, a 12-pack of stubbies and spent the night listening to music and playing games. Ever heard of “Heads Up“? It’s a digitalised version of that family guessing game where you have headbands with words on, or stick post it notes to your forehead – it’s brilliant, and it had us in absolute stitches to a point where we almost missed the countdown to 2016!
After a loud, late night, today will be spent doing absolutely nothing. We had plans to go to The Deep (an aquarium) and take a walk around the marina, but I can’t shake this headache… We can always do that tomorrow, instead.
Matthew, the absolute sweetheart, made me a nest on the sofa, with cushions, blankets and a quilt. The candles are lit. I have everything I need to read, write, plan and relax right by my side, and a cat by my feet. It was clearly a ploy to distract me with cosiness, so he could play Batman on the Xbox all day, but win win!
So, today is going to be a quiet start to the new year. I’m conserving my energy. 2016 will be a completely exhausting year.
Happy New Year!
What are your plans for today? Family goodness, lazy self-indulgence?
