Happy New Years
In the early days we would spend a huge amount of money to attend outrageous feasts at The Highland Lodge (the Legendary Lodge: I must blog about it sometime).
In 2000 we stayed in with a friend to watch the collapse of global civilization on CNN (remember the Millennium Bug?).
Subsequently: camping on Jebel Ali Beach.
Three years ago: a mega knees-up at Jebel Ali Club.
Two years ago, not feeling very festive: sitting on top of Jebel Ali and watching distant fireworks.
Last year: at the Amman Kempinski in Jordan.
Tonight: up the hill again, not bothered about partying (boring old f*rts!), hoping to get some great firework shots.
Possibly I wish I was in Jordan at this time - they've been having snow (140 people had to be airlifted from stranded cars) and I haven't seen real snow for yonks.
Anyway folks, whatever your plans for the night: enjoy it and stay safe! Best wishes, peace and prosperity an' all that to you all.
My resolutions for 2007: get fit, get less fat, leave the UAE. Jajaja.
