Happy New You

Happy New Year folks!

It's funny my year didn't start the way I had planned, at Holborn House having dinner and then maybe a champagne count down in a snazzy bar/club with good looking suave people and great decor but I tell you what it was great!  After having to change my plans last minute on 31st December I called up a trusted bestie and asked if I could tag along.  Now those of you that have read my blog know I like clothes and a bit of dressie uppie.  I had painstakingly planned my outfit down to a tee and just awaited a delivery from Asos with an Antipodium coat to finish the look off.  There wasn't even a fleeting thought of changing the outfit just because of a small issue like total venue change just a tone down of foot wear maybe.
Now just like a lot of people I try not to put to much enfaces on NYE because we all know it can be a major anticlimax so in my mind I just reiterated that I would have a good time whatever happened in anyway I could and that is exactly what I did.
New venue, The Bedford in Balham a family pub with loads of rooms each filled with a different activity to get involved in.  Upstairs comedy and a buffet, so I filled my boots and popped in to hear some funnies' .  Had a great surprise when I bumped into two comedians I have worked with before John Fothergill and  Ian Stone had a quick chat then downstairs to bring in the new year.  Three different rooms of music and a real club atmosphere.  At one point I felt like I was in Ibiza!  I know, how? you may ask I'm not in a bikini on a beach but the vibe was great.  There was no count down or "old langs syne" singing just party atmosphere in a really big pub.
As I was a last minute tag along to someone with work responsibilities I found myself alone a few times.  This in it self was very interesting instead of feeling out of place or vulnerable I just danced like in was in my bedroom. Yes I may have looked like a bit of a nutter but do you know what this year is definitely about making those funny little memories that make me smile at a later date, so expect more crazy people behaviour!
