Ushering in 2011

On a whim, we had my sister and a few friends over on NYE for a cheese and wine session. I knew we would be going home to put Bubbles to bed after dinner at a friend's place, and figured we would have quite a bit of the night left to 'spare'.

By chance we had a friend who was here for work and stranded because he missed his flight home.We invited him over as well and he came just past 12, after having a conference call with a client (Am I glad I don't have to deal with clients like that!).

We opened up a bottle of Te Mata wine we bought on our trip to New Zealand. It was a Coleraine 2006, which we selected upon recommendation and tasting at the winery. It was pretty good, but as Roboman says, nothing like drinking wine while experiencing the weather and scenery where it comes from!

Interestingly, Bubbles woke up to ask for milk. She has never done so in recent memory! Perhaps she wanted to join in the fun. And she did! She was thrilled that her doggy friend was in the house, and we did an impromptu 'dance' session :)

It was a lovely start to 2011!
