Chopped Liver – New Year’s Day

Ah, New Years Day.

The day after.

After the night before.

After a week of celebration, of parties, of music, of dancing, eating, drinking and generally being sociable and planning New Years Eve celebrations.

And then – you can practically see the dust settle – as you slowly rise from your slumber – or drunken stupor – whichever is appropriate.

You wake up late morning. Dose a little longer. Crawl down for your breakfast. And slowly and gradually slip into… well, second gear at most.

Today is a day for not doing much at all – after all, the immediate future starts to loom more seriously – New Year resolutions have to be put into action, and the serious business of… running a business starts tomorrow!

So nothing needs to be done today.

Unless, of course, it is your wife’s birthday!

Not a good day to have a birthday – New Years Day. Not a good day at all.

And here’s why – I’ve explained about the fact that you are in no mood for massive celebrations, but even if you could muster up the energy – nobody else can! Not after last night! The bells chime – and it’s Happy New Year all round… oh and Happy Birthday B.

And usually it’s too cold, wet and windy to go out – it is the middle of winter, remember. And there’s never any mail – nope, even postie won’t work on a day like this.

Still, we can go out for a nice romantic meal later… or, maybe not – all the restaurants are closed.

Alright, I am starting to sound like Victor Meldrew – let’s look on the positive.

None of the above really matters – B, Weedy and me – as long as we have each other – nothing else matters.

And we are all going to need each other this year.

So here’s to B – Happy Birthday. You’re the best.

Oh… and Happy New Year!

Now there… are 3…. steps to… carry a donor card – ooh, wap wap!
