Tuesday 4 - Happy New Year
The Tuesday 4 questions are all about celebrating the New Year.
1. Despite the weirdness of this past year, was it still a good year for you anyway or not? On reflection, yes, it has been a good year. I'm used to living alone, have no financial or job related worries so haven't had to deal with too many of the issues that severely affected a lot of people due to the restrictions imposed by the government in attempting to control the virus. All of my plans to travel were obviously cancelled but on the plus side I have kept in touch with family and friends via Zoom, and in many ways those bonds feel stronger. We've reached the end of the year with only one death in the family (from age, not the virus) and new babies to add to our numbers and, in the big scheme of things, that's all that matters.
2. How will you spend New Years Eve? At home alone but will probably join in a Zoom meet at some time during the evening. I don't particularly enjoy New Year's Eve as I get older so doubt I will even bother to stay up to see the new year in.
3. What do you do on New Year's Day? Is football part of the agenda? Definitely no football! I'm not a big sports fan at all. I was supposed to be going on a treasure hunt but it's been cancelled because the couple organising it live in a tier 3 area. It'll depend on the weather, but I'd like to get out for some fresh air at some point during the day.
4. It's a Scottish tradition to kiss at midnight. Do you keep that tradition? Does everyone get a kiss if you do? No, it's just me here and I don't always bother to stay up and see the new year in.
Many thanks to Annie for organising this.
Happy New Year, Eileen!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you too xDelete
I like to read about how other people celebrate New Year's Eve. I am just grateful that we made it through the year and my daughter and I are together! We usually stay up to count down the New Year, then, I make milk rice. :)ReplyDelete
Finally being together with your daughter is such a great ending to the year for you.Delete
Do you make milk rice in the early hours of the morning before going to bed, or the next day for breakfast?
Oh, I do like these. Please may I use them tomorrow, Eileen/Annie?ReplyDelete
I think Tuesday 4 is open to everyone to join in so I'm sure that's fine. The linky is over on the Tuesday 4 page.Delete
Ah yes, now the push to New Year's Eve. We usually don't manage to stay awake until midnight but I think this year we will to ensure 2020 leaves & leaves quietly.ReplyDelete
The countdown to New Year feels sad at the best of times but this year it feels more so. I will definitely be in bed well before midnight and just ignore the transition!Delete
It has been a good year here too. Happy New Year! Loved your answers! Have a nice week.ReplyDelete
