wanna join us for the "New Year's Dive"....

....in the North Sea tomorrow??? I know, i am crazy, it is freezing outside! But i had promised to join the rest of the family when they did the New year's Dive the other year. I do hope i can make it as weather forecast is a bit windy tomorrow which makes it very cold. It's around 2-3 degrees today and i think the sea water temperature is about 5 degrees celcius. Oh my...!!!

Anyway, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH who took the time to stopped by and wish me a Happy Birthday. Oh well, turning 40 isn't scary as it seems, after all i am fine and healthy which is enough to be thankful. Received lots of gifts from hubby and the kids, from magazine, books, perfumes and other kitchen goodies. No, stitchy stash as those aren't much around here.

The drive to our friend's place last week went well, only the drive back home took us really long as there were some accidents happened along the way which has caused long traffic.
During our stay there, we joined them on their Christmas party the evening of the 24th. It was held on one of their friend's place who has a big house. I think about 50 people attended. They live in one of the big city here in Holland so lots of our fellow countrymen live nearby. It was our first time to join such a big party of most of our fellow countrymen. Lots of foods, drinks, music, games and dancing. Everyone had fun!

Here are some pictures taken from the party, i forgot to take pictures of the food, every family has brought one or two specialties mostly asian.




Wish you all a safe and Happy New Year!! Thank you all for being such faithful readers and great commenters! I love reading all your comments on all my posts.
Hope you’ll continue to enjoy my blog in 2010!

I'll join in the dive with you in spirit, Mylene, cuz you'll never see my body in the North Sea on New Year's Day, lol! Stay safe and keep warm.

Happy New Year!

You are very brave, swimming in the sea this time of the year! Winter swimming (you know, in a small hole made to the icy cover of the water... :-) is very popular in Finland. I don't have the courage to try it, but I do know that you will feel wonderful when you rise from the water. Enjoy!

Happy New Year to you and your family!

I think I'll give it a miss this year, it could give me a heart attack! I'll be thinking about you and all the other fool hardy people who dip in the North Sea - there are usually quite a few in Whitley Bay who dip.
