    2016 was a big year for us what with the lad graduating and getting a job and also having some big jobs done on the house. We've not made any solid plans for 2017 but as usual i'd like to get more organised and I think another big clear out might be on the cards.
    Yeah, it's always fun to think about and plan things for the new year. It's like a new start and quite exciting.

    I've never fancied going away for New Year, or Christmas. I like being cosy warm at home too much


    Yeah, me too. Having said that one of the nicest memories I have is sitting outside an empty cafe, just us, in Rome next to one of those outdoor heaters drinking a hot chocolate just before midnight. It was just perfect. We'd moved away from all the action because in Italy the fireworks are going off randomly all over, so it was a bit scary. We drove around instead at midnight and watched all the fireworks going off from the car, it was really lovely and something I'd love to do again.

The fireballs at Stonehaven are good but even there the crowds are horrendous, so it is getting hard to easily experience these things.
    Yeah, it's the crowds that makes it less enjoyable. Like I said, Rome was nice because it's not all in one place, so it's not crowded. The whole of the centre has people walking around with bottles of Champagne (or more than likely prosecco), it's family friendly as well because people walk in families and all the cafes are open. Last year I think the in-laws went to London. They said they had to stand for hours before in a fine drizzle and couldn't move or they'd lose their place, it sounded awful but they said it was an experience.
