Both NYE and NYD are some of my favourite times of the year. I would routinely work Xmas in the NHS in order to have all of New Year off. I like the build up to midnight and a nice, still icy cold NYD with a walk in some hills and chips for tea. The weather is due to be sunny and cool tomorrow, so a walk out to some hill country parks will be in order once we stir.

Today, though, Austin has jet black skies and torrential rain. I'm pleased about this as I'm hoping it will turn people off the idea of congregating in restaurants and bars- there is a legal shitshow going down today as the city try and impose a curfew as we are running out of hospital and ICU beds. Cunt governor and AG however are enjoying the sound of their own, gun toting, flag waving voices and declaring this an affront to humanity and I hope they drown in a cesspit full of the sputum of a thousand Covid-19 sufferers, with a load of nurses and doctors stood around pissing on them for extra measure.

Nothing says new year, new beginnings more than a good old ski jump from Garmisch Partenkirchen. It’s a tradition round our way to secure 2 planks of wood to our feet and bravely launch ourselves from Midsomer Norton slag heap. My record is 17 miles. 29 feet from the top of the slag heap and the rest by Ambulance to the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

I went with Jan 1 although I've got no idea what "ski jump from Garmisch Partenkirchen" :lol:

While we celebrate and I've had wonderful NYE celebrations. There is something about waking up on Jan 1 (hopefully not too hungover) and having that first cup of Coffee and peeping out the window at the world. For a bunch of years we did a brunch in the city and loved walking thru the streets bringing in the new year.

However, looks like this year Jan 1st, I'll be heading to Long Island to take pictures of a snowy owl.

Last weekends walk to the Tree at Rockefeller Center.
