Happy New Year

I still can't believe that we're getting so near to the end of the noughties decade! I know that I'll continue writing 2008 accidentally until at least Spring 09. What will they even call the next decades? The teenies?

Anyway, so there's something I sort of hate about the pressure to have a fabulous time on New Years Eve, and with 7 hours to go I'm still not sure exactly where I'll be... but I believe that the New Year is so much more about how we will fill the year to come. So here's to filling 2009 with as much happiness as possible!

To finish off 2008, I discovered this beautiful video which is a montage of images taken in exactly the same spot throughout the year. Isn't it amazing how calm and peaceful it is there? If only our own yearly evolutions were so ... unbumpy. Read more about it here.

  1. Beautiful! So peaceful and amazing :)
    Good luck with NYE- I always find it more stressful than fun when you're running around too much- try and relax some :) Happy New Year!!!

  2. We are just staying home with champagne and our new puppy. That is the best New Years I can think of. Hope your New Years eve is what you want it to be and that 2009 is the happiest ever.

  3. Happy New Year! How did your evening turn out? I find that usually when something is too planned, like NYE often is, it turns out to be a dissappointment. I like the idea of not having planned anything, room for spontaneity is always good. And beautiful images btw!

  4. Thank you, everyone! Mettch, it wasn't too shabby in the end, and I spent it with very good friends which was lovely :)

    I hope everyone else also had a great time xx
