My idea of a great New Year is to get to bed early the night before, then be up bright and early and go ice skating. We've done that in the past when the boys were young.
I'm not up to skating now but My Beloved and I did get out for a walk by the river. Glorious sunshine and rushing water that filled the ear so nothing else could be heard. Plus a chocolate brownie at lovely English pub. (Sensible eating starts again on Monday.)
I hope you're having a good New Year's Day and my best wishes to you for the coming year.
