So, whatcha up to for NYE?
As it says in the title really.
Anyone doing anything unusual or are most folk taking it easy (and cheap) this year?
My wife and I have managed to call in a favor, our daughter will have a reliable babysitter and we will venture off to Storm in Coalville for a bit of a boogie.Posted 9 years agonukeproofMember
Up all night tending to the needs of my 2 week old twin daughters no doubt
Good luck to you. I’m a twin…my parents didn’t have anymore kids after having me and my brother; having now got children of my own, I can only now appreciate how hellish it must have been for them…bless ’em 😀Posted 9 years agoAnonymous
going to spend most of the evening downtown around lam son square. i missed the fireworks last year, so this year we’re going to try and sneak up to the rooftop pool at the Saigontourist’s ‘the Rex’ and watch what happens from there.
the vietnamese aren’t that big on celebrating our new year, but they do make an effort for the tourists. their new year – Tet – rolls along towards the end of january, but i’ll be on a short break to cambodia by then. with luck, biking somewhere interesting. that is if it ever stops raining… where’s the dry season this year?Posted 9 years agowoffleMember
Couldn’t get a babysitter this year so we’re all going round to the in-laws where the kids’ll run themselves ragged by 8pm and then collapse so that us adults can all play stupid games and get legless. Should be fun watching the Mother-in-law trying to do Raymans Raving Rabbits TV Party games after one too many.
I’ve been banned from doing fireworks this year after I made the mistake of drunkenly sticking the largest rocket straight into the ground, rather than placing in a bottle. Lit the fuse, stepped back – fffizzzzzzzzz and then BOOOOOMMMM! in an enclosed back garden. Cue assorted neighbouring pets going ape, burglar alarms, car alarms all going off, a ruined lawn and temporary deafness. Very funny though.Posted 9 years agoaleighMember
I’m going to my friends for dinner and to watch a scary film which means IÃll be hiding behind a cushion Ã± maybe watch Jools Holland around midnight, oh and IÃll be getting a bit drunk – woohoo!
Hope to see some of you on the 10th January for the Swinley ride 🙂
Happy New Year to you all.Posted 9 years agoGary_MMember

sootyandjim, i didn’t know Storm was still in existance, i used to go there when it first started. Does Fergie still DJ there? I remember one very interesting night when Fergie and the Tidy Boys played and i felt like my head was going to explode from the hardness of the tunes. Good times.Posted 9 years agoTracker1972Member
Same as last year, fiancee’s parents house for the evening, steady drink (probably red) from early evening for that gentle happy buzz and coming up with “a plan” with her brother and step-dad.Posted 9 years ago
Last years plan was C2C non-stop, which we did. This years will possibly involve a bothy or a bivvy. You will be able to tell which when I post here for advice in the next few days.
