    tWe're doing nothing, but that's not actually because of the kids. Our friends and family are spread so far out, they're all doing something different and really most of them are just too far for us. Many won't be child-friendly either. We could do something here, but as everyone is a good distance away there's a good chance no one would come.



    I'm not too upset about it though, DS had me up every 1-2 hours last night so I'd be useless at a party tonight.

    We are now going to a friend's house, who also has small kids, to have a BBQ. We will hang out, have some champers, have some dinner and go home when the kids crack it. It won't be midnight. But that's ok. We will at least have some sort of celebration with some of our friends, so that's good

    I am going to put the toddler to bed and head over to our neighbours place, the baby monitor is just in range so I can relax and enjoy but still be plenty close enough if said toddler wakes

    Another that is staying home happily. DH and I plan to put the kids to bed. I have a kg of prawn and a platter of all our favourite nibbles ready to go, will have a few quiet drinks together and relax and enjoy the balmy night. If it hasn't cooled down enough we might even partake in a few drinks while cooling off in the paddle pool LOL

    We initially were looking for something to do, but in the end decided its MUCH easier just to do our own thing here

    Haven't done anything for new year's in years and staying up past 9pm is a big night here
    We're on antibiotics so can't drink. In quarantine so couldn't go out if we wanted to, and anyway the smallest one is in a leg cast. Hip hip hooray! We will stay home, watch a spot of telly and then go to bed.

    That's where I got my skydiving licence


    Fish'n'chips have been consumed, boys are pretty tuckered out, and my arms are all cut up from the gardening I did (cutting down little trees and cropping and thinning large trees in amongst wild rose bushes and other plants ... ) so we're about to bathe the boys and put them to bed, and then just enjoy the evening by ourselves.

    We tried out the new Hungry Jacks (ew, never again), and now we're home relaxing. Kids are bathed and DD is in pjs but I'm considering putting some shoes on her and going for a walk, she can see how far she can get on her scooter. That'll tire her out and we'll see if she makes it to the 9pm tv fireworks

    We went to friends place who also have a 22 month old for a BBQ. It was a really nice way to spend the evening and we left at 9 so the girls could sleep. Off to bed now at 10:30pm, lol. Happy New Year!

    We went to the music and fireworks family event close to home. It was amazing so much fun lots of fun for all ages, singing and dancing great community feel! Much better than the stress of the city!!
    We got home just after 2300 the boys wanted to stay up till midnight and watch fireworks on TV and crashed pretty quick after!
    Super fun NYE .
