Happy New Year!!

Fixit is home safe and sound. He saw the fire-fighting helicopters filling up with water which he said was amazing.

He says not to, but I always worry when he goes away on a motorbike ride. I'm glad he's home for New Year's Eve.

The boys are on their way to bed, after their little sparkly treat.

I've started my second glass of wine, after which I will whip up dinner for Fixit and myself.

Neither of us will last til midnight!!

These are some things I hope for in 2007 (in no particular order) :
I hope the drought breaks. I hope to get more creative with my dancing once more. I hope for my boys to keep growing safe and well and delightful. I hope to read more books. And I hope for world peace, an end to human rights' abuse and for people everywhere to be kind to each other and to treat each other as they would like to be treated.

And ... I hope 2007 is a good year for everyone. Thanks for reading, thanks for blogging, thanks for being part of our life. See you next year.

*drinks more wine*



  1. I must have just miised this post. I commented on your previous one a short while ago.

    Like you, we're in for the night imbibing a few ales, eating home made pizza and watching Everything's Illuminated.

    Stomper, I wish you and your family only good things (and as much from your list as we dare to dream) for 2007 :-)

  2. I also wish myself a few less typo's - I wonder what miised could mean? Maybe I was hiccuping!

  3. Happy New Year Stomper Girl,

    I hope you see your hopes for 2007 realised. It's a good list.

  4. Great list! Ditto.
    We had a lovely evening with friends.
    Here's to Healthy 2007.

    And further interesting/funny blogging.

  5. Happy new year.

    I could eat the cheeks of that wee curly cherub.

  6. Yeah, it's me again. Photos of your kids captivate me, and so I am back for a second look.

    Anyway, I just noticed that Climber has an icecream cone in one hand, and a sparkler in the other. What great memories that brings back to me, not of New Years Eve, but Cracker night when we were kids!

    Ice Cream and Sparklers. Memories are made of this...

    How wonderful to be a kid in Australia, truly it is/was.

  7. Ditto to all the things on your list. I've enjoyed reading about life in Australia through your blog and others.Seems like , no matter where we live, the same things are important to all of's to a great 2007!

  8. I raise my glass to you! May 2007 be wonderful for us all.

    Aren't those little ones the cutest? Sparklers are son was amazed.

    We didn't last until midnight either. I struggled after a big party but passed out just after 11.30. And even though the little one had been up since 5.20am and gone to bed at 10.30pm (that's 17 hours!!!) he still woke up the next morning at 6am. Argh!!

  9. Her blond hair is the cutest thing. Looks like she has great curls.

  10. Thankyou Scribbit! *ahem* His hair is admired a lot but sometimes leads to confusion :-)

  11. I always loved sparklers when I was little. And not so little. ;-)

    Happy New Year to you, your husband and your lovely boys!

  12. HNY Stomper & Family !!
