Happy New Year!

And the year has been brought in in Guwahati with large explosions.

On a more cheerful note, the Guy and I celebrated the New Year properly for the first time last night. We had a long (and very large*) dinner at our favourite restaurant. (That place has good food, nice decor - and excellent service.) We also - another first for both of us, I think - set goals for the next year. Financial, career, and health-related goals. I suggested we bring some of our professional planning skills to our personal life. Let's see how it plays out.

To all of you - and us - may this year be more fabulous than any that came before, and may we exceed all our goals.

*A full list of what we ate: potato and leek soup followed by a bell pepper starter, a Virgin Mary for me and a Coke for the Guy, then a plate of potato wedges, a Coke for me and a lime soda for the Guy, a main course of spagetti, and tiramisu for dessert.

Which restaurant? Sounds like a great dinner.

A happy new year to you, and may you achieve all your goals.

I'm ignorant about the happenings in most parts of the world, but just reading that headline gives me the creeps. Why would anyone do such things to such a beautiful place that they themselves occupy? Aren't their own brethren killed in those blasts?

To your list of wishes, I add a prayer that we at least see a reduction in such blind hatred the world over, if nothing else!

And totally nodding my head at bringing professional planning skills to our personal lives. Much needed, and helpful in restricting to a certain extent the feeling that "chores just keep coming at us."

Ah, yes, wish you, the Guy, and all your dear ones a very happy new year!

Thank you all for the wishes, and happy new year to you too (but I've already said that).

Banno: It's called The Ship. The decor follows the name.

Pallu:"Why would anyone do such things?" I wish I knew. It's been happening so often the last couple of years. I think I've become more callous over time Now I just call my mom to make sure she's okay, and SMS Effe to make sure her folks are okay.

A very happy new year to you and P1 too!
