    Both children are out New Year's Eve so it's just me and the cats. Will anyone else be in and would you like to chat on this thread? About anything really (but not politics). If you would like to share a joke or a brainteaser, or news of your 2019 holiday plans or any resolutions I'd be very grateful! From, Lonely at the Other Side of the Hill.

    Yup, habit now.

    Used to stay in my own place but since my dad died a few years ago, it's become either habit or obligation, not sure which, to spend NYE with my mother. Jools, the bells and bed, then up bright and early the next day for a walk, if it's nice, and the vienna concert if it's not.

    I've NEVER gone in for all that NY lark. It's another day. I like all days and my demeanour and behaviour doesn't change depending upon what the calendar may say.

    Grrr. Drunken types round here will be letting off fireworks at some ridiculous hour. Any excuse to disturb the peace. I usually sleep with earplugs to avoid traffic, but will wear them, and they don't keep out the loudest bangs. Hard luck cats, dogs and wildlife, so long as the (insert bad word here) have "fun".

    My parents always stayed up, even if it was 'just us; a toast at midnight and then to bed, but husband's family never did. With all 'the elderlies' gone now I may well be around.

    Yes please, count me in! I have never enjoyed New Year's Eve - all that fake bonhomie from people I only ever saw once a year anyway! On a more serious note, I have struggled the more so these last eight years as my husband's (Stage 4) cancer was diagnosed at New Year. Both my girls and their partners are abroad (Prague and Budapest), so to quote @Over_the_hill, it's just me and the cats - who sleep through it anyway! Let's have a virtual party!
