New Year's Eve 2009

This is where we are off to tonight to see the New Year in... A great local haunt a short distance from our home - very useful!! We had originally planned to go right into the city of Melbourne for dinner and to watch the fireworks but decided to change plans at the last minute - too many crowded places and I am not too great with loads and loads of people all milling around not knowing exactly where they are going...!

The place above is called Wine@129 - very friendly, laid back and as I mentioned, close to where we live too. Should be great fun. And, on the way back we can always stand on a bridge and look to the city skyline to watch the fireworks from afar - a much better idea...

Whatever you are doing, and whoever you celebrate New Year's Eve with have a happy and safe night! And I'll 'speak' with you all again in 2010....

Oh, and just one more thing. Thank you for a wonderful welcome to the world of blogging - have so enjoyed my last few months with my blog but it would not be half as much fun without any comments and I am so grateful to you, dear followers - and to those who read my blog without following too.........



  1. I wish you a Happy New Year too! It has been so much fun reading your blog during the past months. I´m eager to do so in the future too! I´m starting my own blog, only with a few pictures for starters, hoping to do some writing too; not on a daily basis, only every now and then.

  2. Happy New Year and 2010. We've been away for a couple of days and are just having a quiet one tonight (it's my birthday too - yikes!), going to watch the fireworks with a few friends and try not to drink too much.

    Thank you for following my blog and for all your comments, Semi Expat. I'm relatively new too and really enjoying it. I started back in 2008 and blogged once! Came back to it this summer and am now completely obsessed.

    Have fun at wine@129 !

  3. Dear Sarah - Happy New Year & have a great night...it was really lovely meeting you this year - hope we can do it again sometime soon on one side of the world or the other! In the meantime,look forward to hearing more about your semi-expat life! Love Susie x

  4. My Dear, It has been a pure joy knowing you.

    Every time I see your beautiful face I smile.

    I hope you have a new year filled with joy, hope and happiness and that all your dreams come true.


  5. Happy New Year to you too beautiful aunt... I had such a brilliant time- I especially enjoyed the entertainment supplied by 'Jim and Tim'! Ha! Lots and lots of love, as always, from a patchy pomme xxxxxxxxx

  6. Happy New Year! We are still 14 hours away, but I suspect, for you, it's here!!

    GREAT 2010 to all.....

  10. Hello Sarah,

    Greetings from Southern California!

    What a great place to celebrate the New Year. I love that you could walk there. We have some wonderful places to walk to also, but unfortunately it's uphill going home so we get a bit lazy. But it must be so great to be able to walk to cafes and such.

    I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog this coming year.
