It was a wonderful New Year’s eve – my sister set up a gazebo in the garden and strung it with fairy lights and lanterns and we had a space heater and a table full of cupcakes and candles. We had some friends round, and had a couple of hours chatting and taking photos, before they went off to Primrose Hill to watch the fireworks. I stayed in with Dan and my parents and watched Jools Holland (he seemed very drunk this year…) then watched the London fireworks on the BBC. They were spectacular! Then my Dad insisted we let off two paper lanterns in the garden – we haven’t done this before but it was fun, if not a little alarming with the fire and my Dad tilting around a bit – in the end, Dan and I had to sort the lanterns out ourselves! My camera conked out earlier in the evening but I used my iPhone camera for the lanterns and some of the other photos. I hope you had a good New Year however you celebrated (or not, I’m fully aware that it can be a little OTT – this was one of the best New Year celebs I’ve ever had).
