A good bye to the year

Yesterday was the perfect end to the year. Skip, Demon D and I joined some good friends at the track for a nice lunch and a glass of French bubbles.
It was D's first day at the races and undoubtedly the first of many.

We picked winners, ate, drank and laughed. As good a day as you can have at the track.

At the end of the day we picked up our girls and I felt complete contentment to spend the evening with the people I love best. We picked up hamburgers for dinner, watched the fireworks on telly. Goosey wished us all a happy new Christmas before going to sleep.

The kids all tucked up in bed, Skip and I drank a nice glass of red, watched old video clips, listened to snippets of Jamiroquai and The Pet Shop Boys from the concert at Glebe Island as it floated in our window and tackled the big questions, such as:
Why don't people play the keyboard like a guitar anymore?
How many times on new year's eve does 'Fight for Your Right to Party' get played? We heard it three times.
Is A-Ha's 'Take On Me' the greatest film clip ever?

I then fell asleep on the couch about 1130pm.

We woke this morning to a most glorious day, which meant an early morning trip to the beach to wash away the old year.


How did you ring in the new year?
