Not over 'til it's over [Jan. 4th, 2018|12:32 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Our New Year guests departed yesterday, back to their home and their cats. We saw the New Year in quietly together, which is fine by me: my views on the subject are those expressed by Sara Pascoe in yesterday's Guardian (May I be the first to wish you a Happy New Minute. May all your dreams remain subconscious expressions of what scares you.). We lit a fire, we listened to Radio 3's World Music broadcast from Sheffield (because Sheffield is part of the world...), we dozed and woke and raised a glass to the coming year.

The first outing of the year was to to a funeral. Since our New Year festivities are always pretty muted, this didn't necessarily put a damper on the proceedings, but it didn't do anything to make them livelier, either. Still, as funerals go, we did our best to be celebratory, with a sea of blue and white football scarves, and the resolve to Be more Tim.

And today I am back at work. But the festivities aren't over yet, because today is [personal profile] desperance's birthday, and we are celebrating in the most appropriate way we know how, with ghost stories at the Lit & Phil.
