Happy New Year!

Words adapated from a traditional song by Rabbie Burns (1759-96)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
CHORUS:For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.
We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.
And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne
Next year i will learn the words to Auld Land Syne so i can properly sing it at midnight! Happy New Year to everyone that reads my blog. I hope this year is a good one for you!

On New Years eve we ended up having about 15 friends over for a party. Had a great time! Lots of singstar/guitar hero and dancing! Us girlies even pulled out an old Spice Girls album to dance to at one point LOL Was fun. Lori, if you read this, i think we did a great "Vogue!" Unfortunately i didnt take any pictures of the evening.

My hols are nearly up and they have gone so quickly. I have two more days and then im back at work on Friday. DH went back today.

I have stitched but not as much as i thought. I've finished stitching all my exchange pieces but now need to "finish" them. Today im going to work on Lizzy's RR and maybe start season 7 of Gilmore Girls which my American friend got recently. Stitching plans for the new year include a new SAL with Vonna which im excited about! We're going to stitch LHN's Dear Diary series as a big sampler. We're going to stitch that on a Tuesday. Im just waiting for my fabric, i think Vonna started yesterday and i cant wait to see her progress! I'll obviously be carrying on with the Snowbirds SAL too for CdC. Maybe that'll be 2 big finishes for 2008?! We'll see!

Watch out for my blogiversary in 4 days time!

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends :-)

Happy New Year, Cheryl! It sounds like a wonderful party to bring in the new year. And thanks for printing out the words to the song. My parents always sang it at New Year's and it brings back memories.

At our New Year's Eve party, they passed out copies of Auld Lang Syne with the words. I need to learn the words to this song also. Regarding the Dear Diary sampler, I am going to join you and Vonna. Tuesdays are good for me. I'll have to go and purchase the fabric today. Feel free to email me at
