Happy New Year!

Well I was awake for midnight in New Zealand, all the Aussie time zones, all through Asia, part of Europe, the UK and all the Americas.   
 
I had a quiet new years with friends on the beach with a bonfire.  It was quiet, chilly and entirely lovely.  I got to commiserate with another sad person who was not at Rockin' Rockies New Year this year.  We talked all night and watched the sun rise from the top of Mt Eden.  Met some great randoms and realised what a crazy amount of trees there are in Auckland.
 
Why was the Edinburgh street party cancelled?
 
I've had 7 hours of sleep in the last 50 hours.  I think I'll go to bed soon.

Happy New Year Wendy! Sounds like you brought in the new year in a brilliantly different way... whereas I was getting drunk at a house party, entirely unoriginal!We were meant to go out to a bar but it was too cold and windy. The storms were really severe in Scotland which is why the street party in Edinburgh was cancelled.

And good work on staying up so long!

All the best for 2007.
