I have a tradition to start the new year with a champagne breakfast – with pancakes, fresh asparagus, grilled bacon and hollandaise sauce together with a couple of glasses of champagne
This year I have managed to just finish my new year start before the New Year Concert from Vienna started 11.15am, also I MUST for me so long as I can remember – at least so long as TV had a part in my life. Over 50 years.
This year I am going to sign up for a ticket – every year lottery tickets out among the music lovers throughout the world, who have registered. There are normally 3500 tickets will be drawn and you must register your interest between 2 January at 0:00 and 23 January at 24:00. It is only during this time that expressions of interest for the next concert is received. It is not possible to register multiple times, but you can sign up again to all three performances, but they are not for free; €150-530.
My last day of 2014 did I partly spent with friends, but the evening I was alone …. so when it was time for the countdown I got my big bowl of ice cream and I watch the firework from my balcony. My neighbors had loads to send up and at times I was afraid the some of the should hit me or end up in my kitchen.
Then I watched a concert with Robbie Williams and Take That on one of the Danish TV channels – what a show …. I’m a big fan of Robbie, the concert was recorded in Manchester, UK, in 2011 – what a show. Didn’t turn off the TV until 2.50am.
Because I never give promises for the new year, but I have plans and wishes. Wishes that the world going to be a better place for all of us and I that I will get through my 24 day trip to Hong Kong and Japan in April without any bigger problems. I wish that 2015 is going to be gentle to us all.
Thank you 2014 – you were in overall a very good year for me and Welcome 2015!
“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
