Kinda shocked that it's a year on from last posting in this thread when it feels like just a few months ago. Hey-ho, life's weird all round a suppose.

Anywho. Happy New Year to everyone and I'm hell-bent on having a better 2022 than 20 and 21.

Hope you all have fun!

Happy new year, smokes, and to all on the forum.  May 2022 find you healthier and freer to move about without wearing a spacesuit.  Cheers!   :) :) :)

Nice to see you back, goldie. Sorry to hear about you all being sick.  I hope it wasn't too bad.

May 2022 improve as it goes along.

I'm feeling out of sorts and a bit achey since my holiday travels (by car, not plane) so had a test yesterday and waiting on results now. I'm vax'd and boost'd so no real worries (in my head at least) but just wanted to be sure as I do have occasion to actually go on-site at work sometimes.

best to be safe for yourself and those near you.
I have tested negative today after 5 days with Omicron, Wife is still positive for Omicron after 8 days  >:( ,

At this rate number 1 son will be making his way to Sandhurst with his girlfriend taking him, he has spent 1 week in December and even less in January at home trying not to catch Omicron, if he misses Jan 9th intake its another 9 months to wait and I cannot see him waiting that long ( 2 years due to covid he has so far spent waiting for this opportunity)

That sounds really disappointing for you, goldie, as I know how (rightfully) proud you are of his attainments and I'm sure you want to see him off to the new adventure.  I sure hope you can all get negative tests soon.  Sorry for the sickness.  And, dweez, I hope it's nothing more than just mid winter malaise.

I feel that this whole festive period was one year that most people could have done without - or even if it could have been delayed until for another few months. No-one I know ever really felt up to it. I think that COVID knocked the stuffing out of celebrating, and this was compounded by Putin and Gaza and it will take some years before people will start "having it large" again.

Whatever you all do, I hope tonight is as much fun as is possible for you all.

Happy New Year!

My roommate is cranky we didn't do a traditional Christmas dinner, because he usually snags a plate.
He got his thanksgiving plate and should be happy.

I found a new uglier side of myself. He doesn't like sharing stuffing.

Also I gave him a really nice pair of sweatpants for Christmas.

Happy New Year

You got me, and I’ve no shame admitting it. 
I stayed home, and I’ve no regret for that either. 
After all, it’s a new year.  All fresh and ready.
