Happy New Year to all!

Yes, it's that time of year when you can follow the party around the world.  imageBy now New Zealand and Australia have already celebrated and as the hours pass by another country celebrates.image  Other countries such as India have celebrated less opulently due to security issues.  The leader of Dubai in the Middle East has cancelled all outdoor festivities due to the Middle East conflict in Gaza.

London is waiting patiently. image The temperature is set to slip to a cold and very frosty night but the bright colours of the fireworks planned by London Eye will help overcome the chill of the night.  Of course one of the most famous part of the world regarding Hogmanay will be Edinburgh in Scotland where 100,0oo revellers are expected to turn out in sub zero temperatures.

2009 awaits us all!  With sadness we leave 2008 with all we experienced whilst with nervousness and excitement we look forward to 2009. What will next year bring us all? image

A wonderful original painting by Sixsisters entitled Joy!  "Their joy is apparent as they move across the floor. Time stands still for a few moments as we look at them and feel the music and the lightness of their steps. This is the perfect painting for anyone who appreciates dance or the love of it."  I expect a few of us will be dancing the night away, or wish we did/could!  However you see the New Year in, let it be joyful and fun - even if the zzzzzz are being pushed up!

Thank you to all my wonderful BBEST friends, my faithful followers of this blog and to my new readers I would like to extend my warm wishes for a happy, peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year!
