Yup, another year flashes past in a haze and it’s now 11:48pm, just a mere 12 minutes to go until 2011.
Its a bit funny really, the way we humans treat what is just an arbitrary date when all is said and done, with such significance. It’s the end of a year, the start of another cycle (although that kinda happens on the 21st December with the Winter Equinox if we’re being picky) and the chance to remember what’s happened since the last one.
This time last year I was at Perth airport with my two gorgeous kids, waiting for the flight to take them back home to England after an amazing 2 weeks and wonderful wedding. I’m about to speak to them again in an minute too, confuse them that its 2011 in Australia and 2010 in England 🙂
So the year was good really, nothing of any drastic significance happened, but that’s a blessing. Life changes so fast and it’s nice when it kinda stays the same for a bit.
So, Happy New Year, dear readers – hope 2010 was good to you and that 2011 is better in every way.
A happy and healthy 2011 to you and the family.
Thanks Mumma 🙂 Hope you were somewhat warmer than of late now that oil delivery means you can have the heating on!
Happy new year to you too! I hope all of us finally get to meet in 2011.
I love the idea that New Years Eve is one of those events that is celebrated no matter what regardless of location and religion.
Hey Kell – Happy New Year 🙂 I’m sure we will meet up one of these days!
It is good that it happens that way – I wish more people would enjoy celebrations no matter what the significance – for example Diwali in England is quite a big thing due to the large Indian Hindu population – people of all religions used to join in and the majority of Hindu’s welcomed that. I think that kind of thing should be encouraged to foster greater understanding and tolerance. Man, that was heavy for the first day of the year – I’m going to have to tell a lot of arse jokes now to lighten things up!
