My New Years eve was spent with her in my arms, laying in a hammock beneath a palm tree in just swim shorts and a towel. Warm, relaxed and counting my blessings, I couldn’t remember the last time I had felt so satisfied with the previous year or so excited about the one to come.
That was 10pm
At 11:57pm I was in bed asleep, she tapped me on the shoulder and pointed to her watch, wanting to go out onto the balcony and watch the fireworks to see the new year in. I do not recall this. Apparently I nodded at her, murmured a word that sounded like “bluhmur” and rolled over back to sleep.
Not every moment can be like the movies.
I’ve been a bit quiet on here this month as i’ve been in Florida for the last fortnight. I’ve had a great holiday and a brilliant year. Thank you to everybody who has read my blog and to everyone who has entertained me with their posts. Happy new year!
When i was a kid i was never hugely into Disney. I enjoyed The Lion King and Aristocats but found the surplus of princess based films a little bit girly. My brother and i were never like the kids in those insufferable adverts.
Now, as a adult, i find myself practically bursting with excitement at the prospect of spending christmas and new year at Disneywold Florida with my lady. I have resolved to get into the spirit thoroughly and make up for lost time. I wonder if she’ll still stand next to me if i wear this Mickey hat for the entirety of the visit…
Before this year the last time I had been abroad was September 2009, to Washington DC. This year I’ve already been to New York and now this week I’m going to Paphos in Cyprus and Florida for Christmas.
I’m not expecting it to be scorching in Cyprus at this time of year but it should be a good ten degrees centigrade better than the UK and I might see that thing that people abroad call “the sun”.
Look forward to obligatory photos of hotel pool, cocktails and beaches. Going to do my very best to get a tan.
I can’t wait, even if I did choose to spend 4 hours layover in a Greek airport just to save £40. I mean, Greek airports can be a lot of fun too, right?
