You can not sleep through New Years! We don't do anything exciting but we have either friends over, (who also have children)or its its the 4 of us with a late dinner, lots of desserts, lots of sparklers, a bottle of champagne and some mock tails for DD and DS, then we all have a looong sleep in the next day!
Oh and I do my makeup like its 1999 😂 I don't get out much so I make the most of it!'

It's a bit like Australia Day to me now. Non event.
More people out, more drunk people out, over crowded venues, takes to long to get a drink, takes even longer to get a cab...... No thanks!
House parties!? Again, no thanks. We can't get sitters, NO WAY am I taking the kids and trying to get them to bed after midnight when we get home.

I always do something with a group of close friends. We dont get blind drunk or stay up all night,but we will put the kids to bed,sit up together with a few glasses of wine and some nice food, chatting until midnight. Its a really lovely relaxing way to finish off the busyness of the xmas season.

I am looking forward to enjoying NYE again one day. This year we have a newborn plus two other children and that pretty much guarantees I will be in bed when my newbie is. No chance of lasting until midnight. We also have very, very limited babysitters currently. Hopefully next year we will be able to head out and celebrate.

NYE has never been a big event for me, I didn't even bother staying up until midnight before having kids most of the time. I'd much rather enjoy NYD over spending it hung over and tired, but that's pretty well what I think about every day as a non drinking, morning person anyway

I'm always keen for a few drinks and a dance - but on NYE everywhere is packed, it takes 10x as long to get anywhere, everything costs twice as much as it would on a normal night and there's always a tonne of high expectations that never get met.
I'm happy to stay at home or a friends place and have a few drinks but definitely won't be heading out.

out of the blue, we have a NYE party invite from a niece. It would be nice to do something, and catch up with some of the family, but it means a 2 hour drive after finishing work at maybe 4pm. We cant stay at their place, but we have other family and friends in the area. not really interested in the long drive, but we might think about it a bit more. marie.
