It's Been Bitching 2012

New Years Eve is built up to be a night full of dreams, fireworks and frivolity. But deciding what to do on the "big night" is always tricky with so many of us not having plans till the very last minute. Who better to see in the new year than a big group of your closest and oldest friends? 
Very kindly, Mark offered up his humble abode for this years little shindig where we drank dance and sung the night away all the way into 2013. 

Lets start the night off right wrong so wrong. Roll on the black sambuca.

Say hello to my party hat!

Black, gold and studded all over. The perfect accessory to make my New Year's eve outfit. Sadly it didn't stay on my head for very long with everyone channelling their inner 'G' as soon as they put it on.

With the music blaring, we almost missed the countdown. Lucky managed to get there in the nick of time for a jubilant chorus of Auld Lang Syne.

Champagne time!

Lets get this party popping!

Entering the new year all became a bit of a blur at this point, but it sure is a dead cert that these Old Grammarians know how to have a good time!

And of course Mr Williamson was stripped of his clothing.

Hats off to Mark for throwing a fantastic party and what a way to welcome in the new year. 
Its now that time again. The good old new years resolutions that we try to keep for at least the month of January (my 'healthy eating' resolution has already gone out the window day 1, a huge crepe followed by Chinese takeaway - well I needed to get over this hangover somehow, I'll just start tomorrow...).

Starting a new year is always so exciting, but its looking back at what you've done throughout the year that always makes me smile. The loves and the losses, the places visited and the new friends. 2012 has been a big year for me, lets just see what 2013 has in store. 

I want to go into this new year with a quote from photographer Hans Feurer.

"But you must not try to do too many things. You need to find out what it is you really love and concentrate on that and all of a sudden your life gets juicier and more meaningful. You have to follow your guts even if it doesn't make sense or generate money. Either you are one of the robots queueing with a number stamped on your ass, or you are a free individual who makes up his own mind. You have to hold on to what you love and what you really think is exciting - and go for it!"

Roll on 2013! Happy New Year!
