Well here we are with a new year and a new set of SYW questions provided by our host Di.
Did you stay up to see the New Year in?
Yes, we always do. I wouldn’t dream of going to bed before midnight on New Years Eve. We stayed at home, had some nibbles and played Scattergories until about 11:30 pm then just waited for midnight. It’s not unusual for us to sit up. We’re rarely in bed before 1am anyway.
Are there any special occasions or events coming up in 2023 for you or your family?
Naomi and I are both looking forward to some travelling this year. I’m going to Hobart for a few days next month to visit the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, in March we’ll go to the Devonport Motor Show. Naomi is thinking of entering her car but we’ll go regardless of whether she does or not. In April she will be off on another big overseas trip to New York and the UK and in November I’ll be going on a cruise to New Zealand. We hope to get to some other hobby related events here in Tasmania too, doll shows, car shows and model train shows.
Do you keep a diary?
I have just started one! I wrote about it in my previous post. A five year journal. I will be 70 when I finish it!
How did yesterday differ from January 1st 2022 or was there no difference?
I don’t remember what we did on January 1st 2022. This is why I need a diary I guess. I don’t think we did anything special. During the New Year holiday weekend we did take a drive to Waratah which I wrote about in this post. I need to read the blog to remember what I did sometimes. Yesterday we stayed home and had a lazy day around the house. Naomi worked on art projects and I wrote blog posts and cleaned a few dolls.
Well, we made it through another year in reasonable health. Naomi is so much better now than she was a year ago that you wouldn’t think she’d ever been sick. We have got a few necessary jobs done around the house although there is still a lot to go. We’ve visited some beautiful and interesting places and we have the pleasure of having wildlife right on our doorstep.
