For last year's words belong to last year's language..........

“For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.”
I love this TS Eliot quote.
It sums up perfectly how I feel as one year comes to a close and another begins.
Last night we celebrated New Year's Eve with our good friends and their sons.
After a meal together we listened to our sons play guitar and enjoyed some family games until midnight.
Our eldest sons, now 17 and 18 went off to enjoy parties with friends while two more of our friends arrived en route to another party.
It is the way we have celebrated New Year's Eve for several years now and I hope there are many more to come.
I have tried to visit as many blogs as possible to wish everyone a happy, healthy, wealthy and luck-filled 2010 but if I missed anyone out please accept my best wishes.
And let's raise our glasses to 2010!
