Drinking in the New Year!

A (very) short pictorial guide to my New Years Eve celebrations!

The evening started quite early by having to go out and search for fresh mint (to go in the mojitos). Unfortunately the local store was all out and so it seemed only right that a few pints be supped in the local pub before heading home. However, after a few beverages and downloading of a cocktail app, it was decided that we really didn’t have enough booze already and off to Asda it was to get more! The total haul was quite impressive – especially since the only people who were going to drink it was Lou and myself! See for yourself…

Impressive haul

Finally home from the supermarket it was time to get started on the serious business of NYE drinking…The evening started with a few of these…

But then swiftly changed to bubbly and cocktails. Lou’s list of drinks she wanted to make was mightily impressive and I wasn’t sure that it was going to be possible to try them all but I was going to give it a damn good try. By the end of the evening we had supped many cocktails and were content with the fact that we had consumed at least one shot of each from the bottles in the above photo. I awoke this morning without a hangover – which is strange?!! This could always come back to haunt me later…

Happy New Year and hope that 2013 brings you everything that you have wished for. Enjoy!

As we move forward lets take time to look back…

I thought I would kick off the New Year by posting a few shots taken during an albeit brief, but fantastic trip to Tokyo in February 2008. I can’t remember the name of the tower that these photos were taken from, but one thing is for sure and that is the views of Tokyo and Mount Fuji are fantastic. Enjoy!

Happy New Year and I hope 2012 is a good year for you all.
