Happy New Year 2013!

And so ends the Christmas period for me; time to start getting back online. We have such a huge family that I kid you not when I say that from the Saturday before Christmas until now there has not been a single day when we haven’t been visiting or visited. There was even a Christening in there. I now refuse to be related to anyone that I’m not living with for at least a week; I need to recover!

This year’s Christmas period though started with a Christmas meal with a huge bunch of friends and my other half, and it ended with most of the same faces, plus some others, at a house party tonight. We saw in 2013 with fireworks, sparklers, crackers, noisemakers, a BBQ in the rain, hilarity, hours of wonderful geek chatter, and crazy dancing, including a version of Gangham Style that I will never forget (and fervently hope never makes it onto the internet).

It also started long before that and will end long after that with Secret Santa shenanigans and love on be_compromised, where I’ve had so much fun this year and made so many new friends, and with the wonderful from my f-list that happens all year round.

I’m lucky in my friends and this year has proven that time and time again. As the mum who’s house we occupied said: “you’re all mad and you’re all lovely”. All the best for 2013 to you all <3
