- Who else did hee-haw for NYE?
Gangs of New York, wife in bed for 10, already knew it would be fruitless pestering her (my fault for cooking a big dinner…) so poured a large port followed by a large Lagavullin, read some Everest books, listened to some Mazzy Star then saw the bells in with some old Danny Bhoy clips.
9/10 I’d sayPosted 10 months agosarawakMember
House full of little kids so in bed for 9pm. They don’t give a shit what day it is and we’re up a few times a night then 5am onwards with the little terrors. The thought of dealing with it with a hangover is unthinkable!

Besides myself, everyone here was in bed by ten. I got kitted up at 23:00 and went for a ride to the most open, elevated position I could find within an hours ride and then watched everyone’s fireworks with a small bottle of red wine and a plastic glass which I brought with me.
No one in the house even knows I went out last night 🙂Posted 10 months agodudeofdoomSubscriber
I arsed about all day then listened to an audiobook till after 10 then watched The Predator whilst drinking milkshakes till just before twelve than telly on that madness concert an out on the patio watching the fireworks, then back to predator 🙂
I hate hangovers and the dogs going mad so up 4 or 5ish most mornings.Posted 10 months agosingletrackmindMember

Planned a longer 4hr loop today as it was still amazing dry , then my tube I keep velco’d under my saddle fell off at about mile 8, so back tracked hoping to find it …all the way back to the car -UST and no spare tube is asking for a long walk ( in the dark )hjghg5Member
My dad tried to phone at 10pm. Both me and my OH were already asleep and slept through the phone ringing. Woke up to an answerphone message. Even worse we’re actually on holiday in Brussels (but had an early-ish start to get to some cyclocross this morning so took it easy on the beer yesterday).Posted 10 months agobrukSubscriber
Was on call last night, got home at bit after 10 and then stayed up till 12.15. Watched the fireworks over Liverpool then caught the end of the London ones before bed. My wife requested a hot toddy and it did smell good but dry night for me!
May have a wee dram of the Bunnahabhain from Xmas later.
Liking the idea of the bike ride at midnight. May aim for that next year!Posted 10 months agophil5556Member
Other half was off to work this morning so an early one for us. Made a nice fillet steak dinner, listened to some music and I’d dropped off by 11, she was asleep by 10. No drink either for me, duty lifeboat crew.
And at work this afternoon.
The whole of the Christmas period has been very quiet and relaxing 🙂Posted 10 months agoCountZeroMember
O/H was up early for work this morning, apparently it was dead, no idea why they even bothered to open, most shops in town were closed. I went over to a mates like I usually do, we watched Deadpool 2 had a couple of beers, put together some snacks then watched Hootenanny with a wee dram* to celebrate the New Year.Posted 10 months ago

Bugger me, have they stopped making it taste like new carpet smell? I’d sooner drink Bells than that travesty again. That said this was a batch from before they did everything in house so maybe they have improved, frankly it wouldn’t have been hard.Posted 10 months agoP-JayMember
Always, I’ve never really had a good NYE, too much expectation to live up to reality.
Mate of mine has a big family party, they all bring their kids for a sleep-over and have a drink, sounds like fun, but not really my bag.
Last time I went out was 2000 into 2001, I was in Sydney and it was amazing, weather was perfect, it had been stupid hot but cooled to a more manageable (for a pale skinned Welsh Lad anyway) 25c at night, The city was still riding the Olympic buzz wave and I was young, free and single with a pocket full of cash from working myself half to death washing and delivering hire cars through the whole Olympic / Xmas Summer Break rush. Started in the City, took a look at Bondi but it was a total gang ****, few stops in The Rocks, Darlinghurst before ending up watching the Sun come up on the rooftop garden of our hostel in Potts Point / Kingscross.
After that, and the whole misery that was the Millennium the year before I didn’t fancy paying £20 to go into the local pub to be stood with an elbow in each side watching part-time drinkers choke down their bodyweight in booze “Coz it’s Nooooo Years” and throw up on their shoes.
Fast forward a decade and a half, two kids in bed and a Wife who needs to be up for 06:45 for work on New Years Day and I’m that grumpy old **** who moans about the fire works.Posted 10 months ago
