Never having been an imbiber of alcohol in my life, Hogmanay
is not something I particularly look forward to, except to see the back of it
as quickly as possible and have everything return to normal. More drinking,
more arguing, more fall-outs and more fighting seem to be the order of the
day at this time of year than at any other, and I'm hard-pushed to see why
so many people anticipate the occasion with such enthusiasm.
Personally, I'll be in my bed well before the bells, but for those of
you who'll be partying long into the early hours and think I'm a right ol'
misery-guts, just remember that your neighbours, elderly or otherwise, may
be trying to get some much needed sleep, so it wouldn't hurt to show a little
consideration for those who prefer a bit of peace and quiet.
Anyway, having nailed my colours to the mast as a grumpy ol'
killjoy, let me wish all of you a Happy (and considerate) New Year.
See you in 2014 when your hangovers have worn off.

  Oh, and one more thing - "Bah, humbug!"

I am a bah humug.
I usually turn out the lights and go to bed before 'the bells'

I do take a drink but could do without it.
Tonight I went to my young sisters and all my siblings wee there and we drank and laughed and it was great fun.

I could have went to bed early but the change for me was good.

But hey, I am now home and its only about 4 am and i logged on to see what the Kid was up to.

All the best to you sir and here's to you filling our next year with lots off lots!

Kid said...

And here's to you, Baab, and your reading and commenting on my lots of lots. Happy new Year.

Happy New Year, Kid! All the best for 2014.

Kid said...

And the very best to you also, Cerebus.

And a Happy New Year to you too, Kid! Add me to the bah - humbug list too - I had a "dry" eve with my tea! Look forward to another year's posts!

Kid said...

And to you, JP. Good to know I'm not the only one who prefers a cup of tea to a tot of whisky (or whatever).

Happy New Year, Kid.

Kid said...

And to you, Steve. Maybe I'll win the lottery - that would certainly make me happy.

Happy New Year Kid. Hope you are having a peaceful start to 2014.

Kid said...

And a Happy New Year to you, Moony. Hope the hangover is gone - and how was Edinburgh?

A considerately happy new year to you, Kid. I shut my door at 10pm on Monday night, and didn't emerge again until yesterday afternoon. Didn't even know it was past midnight until text messages started arriving.

Great way to start a year, and may it end in that way too!

Kid said...

And have a great New Year yourself, THB. (And when I say 'yourself', I don't mean in isolation. Why do words often mean more than we intend them to mean?)
