Happy New Year!
I awoke to a pitter pat on my roof top and realising it was FAR too late for Santa to redeem himself and bring me presents, I knew it was one of two things: either it was so windy that the branches of the closest trees (a good 10 metres away) were hitting the roof OR ... it was raining.
I hurried to the window and threw open the drapes (actually, they were still open after being too pissed last night to be bothered closing them so I just sat up in bed) and lo and behold, my window was covered in droplets of not quite frozen snow ... or in other words, rain.
Now, I can handle the snow and the minus 12 temperates and the lack of sun, but add rain to all this and I'm not happy!
RAIN? This is supposed to be a winter wonderland with soft fluffy flakes of snow or at the very worst hard frozen flakes of snow ... but not rain! I experienced enough rain in Japan ... and Melbourne ... and Perth ... and Portland.
Okay, over it now.
So, I wish you all a happy new year and I hope you find yourselves dry warm and happy as the clock strikes 12.
2006 will be interesting, entertaining and full of surprises.
