    Cool Hogmanay Celebrations - bringing in 2020!!

    So folks, what are your plans for tonight and tomorrow - doing anything exciting?

    We're having a Hogmanay party at our place, with one of our neighbours coming round with his wife, and Del's invited some of her friends from work for drinkies and nibbles, so I'll serving Champagne and cocktails all night to a load of pissed young(ish) women!! So we'll see how that pans out...

    Then tomorrow I've got my dad and some other friends coming round for lunch, and Del's doing a lovely Christmas ham: https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/h...cherries_83650 and various other bits and pieces, including red wine-poached apples stuffed with blue cheese, for starters: https://catherinefulvio.com/recipes/...ue-cheese.html, and a fresh lemon posset for dessert, accompanied as usual by my expertly selected wines!

    Should be fun... Anyway, I won't be on here later, so would just like to take this opportunity to wish all AoS members, including all the mods, who do lots of invaluable work behind the scenes, entirely voluntary [thanks guys - it's always much appreciated] and their families a very Happy New Year and a healthy and prosperous 2020!!





    Enjoy!!

    Marco.

    At some point someone will kick me awake and tell me to go to bed because they can't hear the fireworks for my snoring...

    Used to go to or have parties. But it's been long since abandoned.
    Very few around here have any now. There will be big ones in the cities as per.. Weather will be fine so princess St etc will be inundated, like George sq.
    Our town has a firework display usually. I can see it from my house and hear it lol
