New Year

Firstly Happy New Year everyone. Hope 2012 brings you everything you wish for yourself.

We went to Buckland village hall on New Years’ Eve for a meal and party.  There were about 90 of us locals, and we had a DJ to play  us the conga and the chimes of Big Ben when it reached midnight. We had balloons and party poppers and those balloons that you blow up and let go and they whirl all round the room!!.  Here is Neil with one he blew up.

There was dancing, mostly to some oldies, but it’s all very high tech what a DJ does these days, as its all on computer, no discs or CDs anymore.

Then at midnight we let off party poppers and a net of balloons came down from the ceiling, then we all sang Auld Lang Syne. So here starts 2012. 
We woke on 1st Jan to an overcast day and decided to go for a walk up Staple Hill again.  By the time we got there it had started raining, but we pulled our coats and hats around us and walked anyway.  You couldn’t see much of the view for the rain.

When we got home we decided to chill for the rest of the day, so we sat down and watched a couple of movies.  Very relaxing. 
So here’s to 2012, we hope for a busy season of B&B guests.  come and visit us
