Happy New Year....

1 January 2008

isn't it hard to believe its 2008 already!!!

... and so its goodbye to good ole 2007 ...
(and another event is ticked off my list.....New Years eve....tick. )

2007 had actually been quite a good year for us.... it was the year our house started to be built... the year Briony began high school....the year we holidayed in Tassie... so even though it had chucked in a few challenges toward the end.. it still deserved to be farewelled with a bang!

So what did we do?.....well thanks to good friends and a party invitation..... we spent it with great company... good food and disco music....I mean....who in the right mind can pass up an opportunity to disco!!

Briony and I had just as much fun shopping for the outfits I think...... after much mix and matching we spent $36.00 and decked us all out in the grooviest disco clothes we could find.... another $15.00 transformed our hair-dos into styles even the stars would be proud of.... honestly...we looked dressed to kill.
... I couldn't help thinking the brunette wig suited Briony.... she looked like a cross between Kylie Mole...and the chick from Austin Powers....lol
well I hope our friends don't mind....but I cant just embarrass us..... I have to share the complete disco'ness of them as well.......so I hope everyone had the best possible New Year....and I wish you all health and happiness in 2008.

    Mardi, you know that I hope with all my might that this year brings only good news and success for you. You have so many people rooting for you and I hope that it gives you strength in the coming months. I do sincerely hope that, despite the rough start to the year, you can look back in twelve months and find that 2008 was nevertheless a good year for you.
