Happy New Year from a Wellington where temperatures reached 28C today. It’s now evening and still hot. Anyway, we had a lovely Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve) having dinner at home with friends, attempting to dance both a waltz and a Gay Gordon’s (a Scottish ceilidh dance learn it here!), and generally enjoying celebrating the start of 2016. It’s the one time of the year I feel Scottish, and have to play a wee bit of Scottish music to see in the new year – nothing like ‘Scotland the Brave’ to bring in a new year!
It was too hot to sit outside earlier in the day, but we did get outside before dinner, for a quick drink. I’ve been enjoying cider from Peckham’s recently such as this cardamon infused one. The boysenberry one is also good.
Just the thing for a hot day
Anyway, the next post will be in just over a week. I’ll be working on my goals for the year and enjoying some time off, but in the meantime, I wish all of you out there in the blogosphere a very happy 2016!
