New Years day

This will probably come up as the 31st but I am writing this at nearly 6 pm on the 1st. I cant believe it is 2008, I thought we were old when 2000 came up!
We had a wonderful night last night, very warm, we all sat out under the vines on the patio and talked and ate and drank great food and wine and celebrated with sparklers at midnight and heard the fireworks in Victor booming away but couldnt, didnt see them.
This morning a cool change had come in and we walked for an hour or so along the beach and watched the cockle train go by. Quite cloudy and misty looking but in reality warm and humid.
I did this scribble while we sat outside and had afternoon coffee it is what I could see of my pots and garden, I had to do something because although Jill goes tomorrow the Melbourne family arrive in a few minutes.
It is all go here but not much time for me.
