I am sober. This is not a mistake. The first few Scottish Hogmanays I experienced, I started drinkng too early and didn’t realise they can still be going when the sun comes up. Now it’s just a sip or two until midnight then out to the Smoky-Drinky mad party.
Everything is sorted and set out for work on Friday because I know I won’t feel like doing it tomorrow. Now all that remains is to have a glass or two of the warming liquid, dress warm and head out.
Next year I won’t be working New Year’s Eve because next year I won’t be at Local Shop. The search for a job change starts in earnest as soon as Scotland sobers up.
So about March or April, then.
The festive season is nearly over for another year. Normal service will resume soon.
Happy New Year to one and all!
