Janus- the god of beginnings and transitions, looking backwards and forwards. I feel that ever so strongly at New Year. Ringing in January, it feels good to look back at the achievements of the last year and plan for the next. This NYE was spent in the best way possible. It was just the young man and me, staying in at my sister’s flat in Brighton whilst she and her husband went to celebrate their 2nd wedding anniversary at the hotel their reception was at. (yes, they got married on NYE and yes, it was an awesome party!) We dressed up, I put on as much glitter as possible, we drank champagne and were silly with party blowers and bubbles. We sat on the sofa and watched Friends, whilst talking about the last year, our lives and dreams and plans for hours, before running outside to watch the fireworks burst over the sea at Midnight. A thousand miles away from our warm and sunny New Year in Cyprus last year, but fingers crossed it holds as many good things for us as 2013 has.
