Six of us celebrated seeing the New Year at Paekakariki Motor Camp, with the full moon casting it’s cold silvery glow down on us mortals below. The strong winds kept the clouds scudding across the sky, whipping the branches of the tall trees back and forth.
We joined in with four friends to see the New Year in. In the far reaches of the camp a lone guitarist hooked up with multiple amplifiers belted out songs for the private party taking place down at the Lodge. He sounded pretty good to us, especially when he played my very special favourite song, “Ten Guitars”. “Pop” went the cork from the bottle of bubbly and we drank each other’s health and wished good things for the coming year, wondering what 2010 would bring to us all.
I’ve been doing plenty of stitching while we have been away in the caravan. Perhaps my New Year Resolution should be to make sure that I do a little sewing every day – what could be nicer than that! Happy New Year to all, and wishing everyone a year full of time to do the things you love best, and most of all, good health.
