We all waited very patiently after the family fireworks last night and then got very excited at around 11.45pm. We all stood up and moved forward to get a better view and then the coutdown began. Hundreds of thousands of people counted down from 10 to 1 and then the celebrations began. We all set off our party poppers, danced to music and generally celebrated wildy, Whitey and I in our sparkly hats that we didnt end up paying for, finding it hard to believe that we were actually there! The fireworks were set to great loud music and were just fantasic. They went on for ages and we danced away. When they finally finished we all chatted and danced and then said our goodbyes. The city was packed and it took a while to get a train. Once on, there were so many people and a couple who were very drunk, singing and offering everybody advice on how to approach the new year....2007!! What a night!!! This morning i felt really quite ill and stayed in bed for quite a while. Whitey went in the pool when he got up. After a while relaxing Whitey and Mikay left me at the flat and went to town to get me a birthday present. They had a fun day apparently, well certainly amusing like when Mikay asked for a Deli sandwich in McDonalds with nothing on. just Ketchup (i.e plain) and the guy gave her a bun with tomato sauce on...she wasnt happy. At the flat i researched some things on the internet, watched the Kanye West DVD White got my for Christmas and slept. Rosie came back from the hospital with the news that Marg is feeling much better and should be home tomorrow! Later on i walked down to the train station in the sun to meet Whitey and Mikay. We walked back and then Whitey and I got in the pool. We chatted for ages about coming back in June and tried to get the dogs to like us....they are still scared blees 'em. After dinner we relaxed some more and then headed out to 'Scruffy Murphy's' in town to watch the Liverpool matchh Vs Bolton. It's weird because last year i saw Liverpool Vs Bolton on my birthday and i did the same this year....technically as after 15 minutes of the game we celebrated me turning 19! It was fun....they bought me champagne and Mikay made me a serviette birthday badge because Whitey lost my actual one! The match was really good and we ended up winning 3-0 although we left after 2-0 because we needed to cath the train. We're just going to bed now and im quite excited for my birthday tomorrow.
