New Year's Eve – anyone else CBA?
Ever since being in Sydney 4 years ago for NYE I CBA as nothing will top that in this country. So today ill be spending the day having fun with my brother, sis in law and her brother and sisters. Tonight I’ll be staying in, have a couple of beers and watch Channel 4’s House PartyPosted 5 years agoFunkyDuncMember
Mrs FD working over night, just like she did at Christmas. I’ll be home looking after Jnr FD, probably get an early night and get woken up at midnight by stupid fireworks.
Having said that if the weather continues as bad as it is, it might put people off using fireworks 🙂Posted 5 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Hate it. Probably in bed with a good book well before 12 like last year, & a quick cuddle with the mrs to toast the bongs.
Much prefer a few hours together with family early in the evening.
Dragging the night on for the sake of seeing in midnight to the sound of cheap crap fireworks really isnt my thing since a certain someone decided to see in the millenium by opening my face with a pint glass. I still wince at 00:20.Posted 5 years agomolgripsSubscriber
The actual date, like all these things, means nothing. I do however enjoy an excuse to have a good time with mates whatever date it is.
Having said that, I don’t have enough mates, so won’t be doing anything. Wife’s poorly, I’m knackered, kids are kids.. prob won’t be staying up.Posted 5 years agomonksieMember
If it’s not chucking it down, we’re going to sit on top of Eccles Pike with a bottle of wine for the wife, a bottle of WKD for my daughter, a bottle of orange juice for me and water for the dog and stick two fingers each up to the arse end of 2012 and wave hello to 2013.Posted 5 years ago
A year that we’d like to but sadly won’t completely forget.hammyukMember

Struggling to find the motivation to go out , have a couple of offers of overpriced, over busy, over enthused pub events and just noticed weather forecast is sunny from 9am tomorrow so option 3 is looking favourable…sofa, beer, clearish head tomo morning = NYD ride 8)Posted 5 years agolarryMember
I came up with the idea of a nice evening in, order a large full works curry, lots of beer/whiskey and some games etc but the Sister in law poo hooed it all and now it looks like I am having to go round town, in fancy dress in the rain 😥 Its gone 12, I have no costume and I have a huge dose of CBA!Posted 5 years agobinnersSubscriber
Dear lord! You’re miserable bunch of sods! 😉
I’m working all day today, so I’m looking forward to a nice evening with my beloved, some good mates, lots to drink, good food, good music and some Wii based drunken sillyness later
Its the start of a new year FFS. And I think its going to be a bloody good one. So there! 😛Posted 5 years agoderek_starshipMember
Bah bollox. I hate NYE. CBA going to the local as its generally populated by nobbers, no doubt supplemented tonight by the port and lemon and half a mild, once-a-year pub botherers. And they charge a tenner in. Pah!
We’ll be staying in with wine and snacks, probably watch a DVD and go to bed after the midnight demonstration of the double dip recession – i.e. £xty of bleedin’ arsin’ fireworks.
Tits.Posted 5 years agoNickSubscriber
Yeah I can’t be arsed either, last time I went out on NYE was to Ali Pali for a big club night thing with Orbital,DJ Sasha etc about 13 years ago, it was shit, cold and overcrowded.
But tonight, as has become the tradition over the last 6 or 7 years we’ll be with another couple, who are cooking some food, we’ll drink some nice wine, smoke a couple of herbal cigarettes and play pool on their rather nice table, we might make it past midnight but certainly won’t be watching the clock.Posted 5 years agoron jeremyMember
Best one so far has to be Edinburgh for a proper street party, then back to a backpacking hostel to drink the next day through ending up doing Bundy and cokes with a couple of Aussie ladies,
This year is just like a regular Friday night out, drinks in our fave local dive bar with a good group of mates, then back to someone’s to crash on their sofa talk crap and drink whiskey until the morning….
None of this dressing up and making an effort stuff, just out with good mates and having a laughPosted 5 years agoBenjiMMember
We’re taking part in a galloping gourmet which has gone from bad to worse. Originally there were supposed to be 14 people, visiting 5 houses, some of those would not be contributing, those who were hosting were paying for the food. Some of those not hosting would be paying for drinks. The last house (aim to be there for midnight) would be putting on fireworks) No planned start time until it was decided last night, although I’ve been asking for the last few weeks about various things with no answers (it’s my other halfs mates doing the organising) So we’re doing the cheese, naturally, and I got everything together over a week ago to make sure I had stuff properly matured and ready to eat. So mideweek last week, “fireworks” house dropped out now everyone is finishing up at ours. Then last night the bombshell was dropped that there’s now only 8 of us and we’re just going to 3 houses. My original suggestion that everyone puts in the same money and it’s split evenly between the hosts was stepped on straight away, . I didn’t even know half the people that were attending! Anyway hopefully it’ll go ok, I’m just a bit pissed off with spending a small fortune on decent cheese and people crying off at the last minute. We still don’t know what’s happening with drinks at each others houses. Do we take some with us or not? Still no answers on that front either. 😕Posted 5 years agoandrewhMember
Had two plans:Posted 5 years ago
Anoch Mor hill race. KNee injury forced cancellation
London with GF. Splitting up caused cancellation
I CBA really TBH. Didn’t do anything the last couple of years and din’t miss it. Aonoch Mor race is excellent though, did it a few years ago. It’s new years day though so probably doesn’t count.colournoiseSubscriber
Always used to go up to Edinburgh with mates for Hogmanay, but stopped when it started to get a bit too corporate a few years back.
Tonight will be as it has been for the last few years – me, Zoe and the dogs with a takeaway and some booze. Bit of TV and see the new year in quietly together with Jools and some Laphroaig. Way more agreeable than risking the chavs in Cathedral Square and queuing up to pay to get into the shitholes that pass for city centre pubs round these parts (Charters and the Brewery Tap excepted).Posted 5 years ago
