Today was a lovely new year's day!

I was quite late to bed last night. I have got another cold, so opted to stay home alone as I wasn't feeling good. However as Tarka is scared of fireworks I couldn't go to bed until they had all finished.

So, this morning I slept in really late, didn't wake up until gone 10am! Poor dogs must have been starving! I had a lazy morning just reading or on the internet, then after lunch we all went for a family walk. (me, brother, sis-in-law, sister, 2 x nieces, 2 x nephews and niece#1's boyfriend). I've got a dog from work staying with me for a while so I had 2 dogs too.

As I stepped out the house to go and meet the others, it started to rain!! While we walked it rained heavily and steadily for the whole walk. Luckily I had a complete set of waterproofs in the car... unlike everyone else!!

Once home I had a quick shower and got changed, then met my sister and nephew #1 at the local ice rink to watch a hockey game! Sis and I used to support the local team avidly until about 15 years ago when finances made it impossible for me to keep going, so this was the first game I've been to in a very long time! It was fab.... and to top it all off 'our' team won 5-3!!!

Thanks! It was a great game. I'd love to get back into following the sport, but at £10 a ticket it'll have to remain an occasional treat I think.
