NYE 2019, I ended up spending with these beauties…
…heavenly creatures, on the edge of becoming. Two of whom were too polite to read out the swears when we played Cards Against Humanity (yet one of whom still managed to win!) All of whom shared a resolution at midnight to always take more care while crossing the road!
My other heavenly creature blew us out for a house party where apparently she was sick in a bowl and another friend threw up in their own hands! That’s Malibu for you. Meanwhile, Bman, released into the wilds of Leeds at the last moment, eventually came home in the afternoon of New Years Day after doing whatever it was that he does when he goes out.
I, on the other hand, fell into the sinkhole that is, the Netflix boxset. Namely ‘The Crown’. Not sure how I missed this. I don’t care what anyone says, I like the Royal Family. Without them, I highly doubt anyone would visit the UK, or certainly not as many visitors would come. One of my most vivid childhood memories is of going to see the Crown Jewels in London with my mum and my nanny when I was about 5. I then spent many a happy hour drawing the crown and orb & sceptre and making crowns out of cardboard.
I am halfway through season 3 after two days solid binge-watching. I suspect I may soon start speaking in a very clipped upper-class British accent and setting my hair or taking up horse riding. Watch it, if only to get a fascinating insight into British Royal and political history.
That’s if we haven’t been drawn into WW3 before the month’s end of course.
