May you all have a wonderful New Year

The western New Year, that is.

Tonight, we head down the street to a New Year's Eve party: the second annual such gala at this home: last year was such a success that I suggested that they make it an annual thing, and for some reason they took me at my word! Which is great -- they have a lovely old house, huge back and front yards, they cook well (for vegetarians!) and most of all are lovely people. So here's a toast to P and A!

We are already making plans for next New Year (the Chinese New Year, that is). In an attempt to make sure that Boo and Skibo don't grow up closed minded, we are trying to make other cultures fun: and so we will cook longevity noodles, hot and sour soup, and steamed pork buns in February. And wear red!

Yours, pre-resolutions,

HAPPY NEW YEAR, from me and Michele!

Have an excellent party - sounds like you will anyway!

And don't forget - Chinese New Year, you give the children money wrapped in red paper - the origin of 'red letter day'!

I hope the party's a good one. When the kids were small and I was living in Banaglore we had combined new year parties ... all the neighbours joined in and contributed food, there were the old party games ... and a great time was had by all ... sigh!
