Happy New Year!

Feeling ridiculously good - happy, lucky, contented good, not hyper, stimulant-fuelled good - this New Year's Eve. No particular reason - it's just feeling more important this year than any other so far to feel lucky that my life's in a good place, with a prickling feeling about those whose life isn't.

We're chez nous tonight, as usual, having a blast of popcorn, great music, probably some Jools Holland, some sparklers, and definitely the London fireworks on tv at midnight. And a splendidly undisturbed lie-in in the morning. 6 Music's been on all afternoon - bah humbug to whichever government, tory or labour, had the daft idea to try to axe it.

To everyone who has put up with my random thoughts this year, inspired me, made me laugh, made me cry - a massive thank you, and I hope next year will be everything it should be, and more.*

Much love xx



* of course, we will ignore the 3 weeks or whatever length of boredom that shall be the olympics ;)

We're also chez nous with Jools then live Big Ben at midnight. Got to admit that we've already opened the bubbly and watched the full 12 minute Sydney firework spectacular on Youtube! Wishing you all the very best for 2012 and thanks for being one of my lovely followers.
