Hogmanay is a wild night tonight - 70 miles an hour wind has meant that the big town centre celebrations have been cancelled! Not that I'd be going in anyway, but it's a shame for those that were. I'm finding it hard to move away from the Christmas feel of the journal so tried to be a bit different tonight. The 'memories' are from the days when I would stay up to all hours to greet the new year and the journalling block tells what I get up to these days! Memories: ships' horns in Greenock / playing whistle as Bill morris danced in Strathpeffer / walking through the streets first footing in Kilbirnie / dancing in the streets in Lundin Links. Nowadays Hogamanay is a quiet time at home with Mum and the start of several peaceful days at home. I like to clean out the rubbish and hoover and clean the floors and have the flat tidy, then put out some cake and open a new bottle of whisky at the bells. Then it's quite an early night really. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THE BEST FOR 2007!
