Well, it's nearly time to say farewell to 2008. I can't complain, it was quite a good year for us here at home. There are a few things that we could have done without, but considering what others have gone through, I admit that we have been quite provileged. So, I hope we have the same to look forward to in 2009.
The old man and myself are not party animals any longer (feels like a lifetime ago when we actually were) and the little guy is still way too young for any late night folly, so off with us to the mountains for a quiet family celebration with my parents.
And if you want to follow a Portuguese tradition, get out those raisons! For each gong of the clock at midnight, people here pop a raison into their mouths. Twelve raisons symbolise good luck for each month of the New Year.
A very happy New Year to all of you out there in the blogosphere! A year filled with dreams-come-true to all my IF sisters/brothers, specially those who are part of my Association. My New Year's wish goes out to them.
