Meandering Monday

Sorry I haven’t been posting too much of late, health just hasn’t been on my side. But I will have a few more reviews coming soon, since I’m currently reading two ARC books at the moment. Then after that I think I will have a few other books heading my way, mid to late January or early February, depending on authors plans ๐Ÿ™‚

Anywho, on to the whole walking down memory lane thing…which btws is sooo not easy for me since I have an absolutely terrible memory.

With New Years just around the corner. We just have today in Australia to go, before we hit New Years Eve….and that made me think of memory’s as a kid of these evenings. So if you want to join in, comment below and share a memory you remember of New Years.

I remember one New Years my mum sister and I went to our cousins house. I can’t really remember how old we were, maybe I was around 12 or 13 and my sister a little older (we’re 18 months apart). Anywho, most of us were watching Lord Of The Rings as that’s what was airing on the tv at that time, as we waited on the countdown. I think to be honest this was the first time we had stayed up til midnight for New Years, so I remember being pretty excited. But as time went on and LOTR finished we couldn’t sit still…and I remember we put on some music.

Now my cousins really weren’t around my age, but the closest one too me and my sister was a couple of years older, so I always felt a little on the younger side with them…but years slipped away in that moment…I don’t know if you guys remember the song “Cotton Eye Joe”? Well I remember that song came on and we seriously danced around his bedroom like complete looney’s singing it at the top of our lungs, well mostly the chorus coz I don’t think I actually new all the words ๐Ÿ˜‚and then that was followed by “Single Ladies” bahaha but we sang something about singlets coz thats what my cousin had thought the words were at one time lols. ๐Ÿคฃ

I remember we had so much fun just being so silly. Randomly I also remember their neighbour started playing her bagpipe. Being on the fun high that we’d been on, we thought this was hilarious, I do not know or understand why, but we did ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. Then as minutes clicked closer to New Years we all did the whole countdown at the top of our lungs lol. As you do ๐Ÿ˜‚

It’s been many years since that New Years and although we haven’t celebrated or what not again with our cousins, each year my mum sister and later on her boyfriend, now hubby… we have always done something together and would binge on so much food…the more recent years its been more of a like “GUYS STAY AWAKE, C’MON!” …I’m like the only night owl in my family lol so its easy for me, but the others have struggled lol. But that never stopped us from having fun together. I just loved being able to hang with my family…and that’s what New Years is about to me. Being with ones I love.

So Happy New Year my bookie friends. I wish you and your New Year is a good one! โค

  1. I remember every New Year’s Eve mom and I would always watch Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve. It was always fun to see our favorite bands and performers on it. Then after midnight struck we’d go to sleep. Now that mom is gone, (19 years on January 4th) and I’m older, I can’t stay that late anymore. So I’m always asleep before midnight.


    • Nothing like watching favourite bands/performers ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sorry to hear about your mum ๐Ÿ˜ฆ do you still continue the tradition of watching Dick Clark’s Rockin New Years, even if you can’t stay awake til midnight these days?
