While many of you may be celebrating and counting down, I was just too tired on the eve.
The suddenly announced public holiday disrupted my plans. I would be away and unavailable from 3 January 2011 onwards till I don't know when. So the last working day of the year was really crucial for me. I of course sighed in my heart, not daring to let it out. I was sure the rest of the work force would be asking for my blood had they known that I was not too happy with the holiday.
Anyway I retired and slept at about 10.30pm after wishing a friend Happy New Year. It was a pretty long text message. Woke up again by the noisy fireworks at 12ish. Tossed and turned in bed and slept again till the next morning.
I was slightly late but the contractor I engaged to work on Legolas' palace arrived even later. Checked my text messages while waiting for the contractor. There were quite a number of New Year greetings. Yes. My friend did wish me at 12.06am. As usual, a person of little words the message was simple but sweet.
Met the contractor. Got hold of the Elf. We later went for lunch after a stop at the electrical shop which I normally go.
It may be a bit too late but anyway, better late than never. Happy New Year folks. May this year be a better one and I wish you all all the wonderful and great things you all wished for.
