    Default Do you wait up to bring in the New Year?

    Or are you like me and go to bed at the same time (10) as I do every night? I awake the next morning with a "Happy New Year" to SWMBO.

    You're a bit of a nightlark, I am off to bed at 8.30, up at around 5.30am though.

    Tonight won't be any different.

    No - can't remember the last time I saw in a New Year (and don't really care).

    Ken - 8:30? Even I can't go to sleep that early despite getting up before 4am during the week to
    be at work by 4:30! Usually just nodding off around 10pm. Look forward to my sleep in on the
    weekend - 'til around 7am LOL rest of the family think I'm nuts (maybe I am).

    I don't go to sleep then. I listen to music to midnight usually. I just happen to be beggared by then. I don't sleep well and cannot roll over in bed, so I sleep on my left side then get up when pain wakes me around 5-6am.

    Other than that, same as, same as! Lucky are those who sleep through the night.

    I have just posted this sarky note through my next door neighbor's
    letterbox at 4.30 am on New Years day. I wonder what reaction I will get:-

    Karl, Happy New Year,

    I wish to apologize for getting you out of bed several times
    during the night due to all the noise I generated with music,
    loud whooping and general disturbance. e.g. Dancing Queen,
    David Bowie & Come On Eileen around 3.30 am.

    Not quite as bad as the previous NY Eve when it was My,
    My, My, Delilah at 4.30am but I realize that I should have a bit
    more respect for my elderly next door neighbor and
    promise you a more peaceful night next NY Eve.

    The dividing walls and floors of our houses are do not
    provide adequate sound insulation and I will bear this
    in mind in the future.

    It is now 4am, so you may as well stay up until dawn and
    make up for a sleepless night by retiring early today.

    They have now gone to bed, so perhaps now would be the right time
    for the bagpipes!

    I always sleep before 12am on New Years Eve Yes, there were noisy cars and fireworks. I guess for some they already failed their new year resolutions and it's only been 1 day in.

    The sky has not fallen down, I am not a popstar. So what's different.

    On NY Eve I ad a BBQ but I came back by 5pm. Most of the others stayed until midnight. No way was I gonna do that and talk about crap amongst ourselves.
