Hi Ladies original.gif

This is the first year in years that I have New Years Eve off from work (or not in hospital after having a baby wink.gif )
So we have decided to do something for NYE. Just a casual BBQ with a few friends, kids can swim, we can chat, heaps of yummy food... I'm really looking forward to it.

So, what are you doing for New Years this year?

Going to one of our employees houses actually for a casual celebration.  We're bringing the kids so will probably be home by 9pm original.gif. We don't do New Years so this is a huge break from tradition for us!

The party I was going to has been cancelled as the host has gastro. Now I'm looking for something...

Can't be a loser on NYE!

I'm doing nothing. I'm hoping they'll be some people on EB or FB tonight.

We are going to a friend's house and we're all going to stay there.  The kids will be off playing with each other, we adults will be drinking wine and playing cards and frankly, I can't wait!

Flying home from my holiday - getting back after 10pm so it will be a fairly quiet one this year which suits me. The resort we've been staying at had lovely fireworks on Christmas Day so that will tide me over until Australia Day.

Same here. DH is going to a party down the coast and won't be back till tomorrow and I'll be home looking after the kids. I thought about taking them to the city for the fireworks but I'm just not in a party mood at the moment  sad.gif .

Wow, seems to be a lot of gastro going around! Our neighbours are coming over for a bbq tonight but as we both have small children it will probably be an early one (which suits me perfectly actually)

Going to relos for a BBQ. There's 4 families attending. I'm 34 weeks pregnant so trying to be excited. Kids are really excited

Going to a dress up thing at a pub.
My bf and all the neighbours have gone to the same place for NYE 12 years running.

Dressing up in this heat fills me with dread. I might pike.

I hear you. If I go out it will be in my thinest cotton dress. I don't care if I look good, I just want to be cool.

Plan originally was to take kids to seeManly fireworks, but the kids to bed and enjoy a drink and move with my sister and her DH to see in the new year.

As nephew is only just coming out of one illness, don't want to expose him to my family.

I will probably end up watching the waves on the beach drinking Midori.

Slightly different to minus 20 and snow last year.

Casual get together at a friend's place. It's so fricking hot though, I'm not that keen.

Malibu barbie in swimmers and board shorts? Daisy Duke?

Getting all dolled up for a Middle Eastern degustation in the city with DP. Hoping I can rope him into an ice cream, beachside stroll and firework watching afterwards.

I never celebrate NYE, and have never spent one with DP, so this year is a radical departure from the norm.

Just noticed this is the WA forum, oops.

Watching a movie at home with DH, I have never been fussed with NYE, DH might duck out to take some pics of the fireworks though.

Nothing, well unless you count the argument DP and I are in the middle of......
