While New Year’s Eve for us usually entails eating and socializing underneath the open skies, on the beach or in the pool, the current weather means that we have to occupy ourselves inside.
The game of the night has been pool, which has been rather fun as it is the first time I am learning to play it.

We are now mere minutes from the New Year and have just had an awesome New Year’s Eve supper.
In a few minutes we will be welcoming the new year with South African sparkling wine (like Champagne) and – despite the weather – will probably be deafened by the sound of fire crackers.
Geseënde Nuwe Jaar, or blessed new year, from South Africa!
