Happy New Year  

I love living in Tasmania, but I'm a Sydney girl at heart, and there's nothing else like the fireworks in Sydney on New Year's Eve - at least I got to watch it on the telly!

I haven't been online for a while as one of my Christmas presents from my husband was changing our bedroom to a different room so that the room we had been using could be converted into a sunroom/sitting room ... so we've spent the last few days unpacking and repacking, hoisting bookshelves and beds up and down stairs. It's still pretty much chaos here, but our lovely new bedroom just needs a coat of paint to be perfect. It's tiny (which is why we didn't move in there from the start - just enough room for the bed and one bedside table) but the view is spectacular and there's a little Romeo and Juliet balcony off it that we've never really used. Bliss! To clear the space I had to move the desktop PC up into the funny little loft that sort of hangs off it and I managed to completely stuff the wireless network and I've only just now got it working again - guh!!! I'm so happy to be back onine!!!  I also managed to drop the bed on my foot when we were reassembling it. Oops. The subsequent bruise has inspired me regarding the colour we're going to paint - only half joking - I'd already picked a luscious sort of purply grey thundercloudy tone for that room - LOL!  Getting a builder in next week to quote for some in built cupboards in our new leisure space.  Squee!

Hope 2012 is everything you could wish for! ♥

Oh what a fantastic shot! I'm lucky o be visiting Sydney this year, so got a prime picnic spot in the park with a view along the harbour, and the bridge in the distance. Had a great night, and it was my first time seeing Sydney fireworks live, and they were awesome!

Happy new year :) Sounds like you've been a busy bee, but all worthwhile!

I'm so envious that you were in Sydney for the NYE blowout - such an awesome night!! You must have camped for ages to get such a good spot! Ahh. makes me all nostalgic.

Enjoy your visit and the Festival!

Actually, we only headed down at 5pm, and there were heaps of spots right by the water still, so I was surprised.

It was a great crowd though, everyone really well behaved for the most part.

Oh wow, really? That's great! We used to watch them from a little playground near home (Carlingford) - it was high enough to get a good view, sitting on the swings - LOL!
