My turn to have my daughter stay over, so we are watching TV, had our domino's pizza , maybe play some Minecraft later and then when she's asleep I'll catch up on my TV stuff.

That's enough excitement for me.

Currently drinking Guinness whilst watching 90s BritPop on YouTube. The kids are in their rooms playing the computer. That'll do me.

Niced chilled out evening on the coast, after the customary fireworks probably indulge in some fictional reading or finish off watching the bay on ITV hub.

Spent the day just the four of us. And enjoyed chilling. Nye never a big one. And don’t drink much in the house. But may just have one to celebrate what’s been a strange year and welcome in the new one.

We’ve had the second little one. kept our health. Works been as normal as was possible and had a good year. Family have been well. Burnley have performed too.

Trying to enjoy and remember the good memories from the year. We’ve all experienced history. 😎

Looking forward to 2021. A tough month or so ahead. But I’m optimistic and positive. Memories to make. Parents to hug. Sunny holidays to enjoy. Back on the turf. Back in the office.

Hope everyone has a good one. 😎

Watch a bit of telly including the last ever Only An Excuse, and pop onto UTC now and then, plus playing a quiz or two which I may post later if if can be bothered.

I've done the big NYE stuff before, and it's ok, but when you're waiting in the freezing cold for a cab home at 2am, suddenly staying in and keeping warm isn't so unattractive after all.

Whatever everyone is doing have a good one. And let's hope 2021 brings happier times for us all.

Kids in bed, hot vimto watching a film then bed before 12.

Had a lot of time to think about my plan for the next 12 months, 3 year, 5 year, 10 year. I’ve set myself some goals from leisure, finance and work and feeling motivated for work next year. I predict the first quarter will be very much like last year but I’m certain I’ll be ok if I stick to the plan.

I’d love a holiday next year, my company owe me a lot of money that I’m not sure I’ll get, we will see, I’m not going to get to worked up about it though as I haven’t missed it as much as I thought this year.

Starting the year with no social media, very little watching of the negative news, eat well, train well, cut back on drinking alcohol at home, more reading, no phones in an evening!

Let’s see how I get on

I can't remember the last time I went out on a NYE. I always thought it was very much overrated and waking up on New Year's Day with a belting hangover.

Bottle of plonk, nice roast lamb joint for tea and hopefully some action as its my birthday tomorrow.

Knowing 2020, the bottle will be corked, the lamb will give me food poisoning and the Mrs will finish up preggo with triplets. :lol:

Well I've never suffered from a hangover, sometimes it pays to be teetotal :) I do agree about NYE being overhyped.

Currently getting the eldest down from the ceiling. Ryanair have cancelled her flight home tomorrow, next is Sunday. She’s got booked on it but I wouldn’t be surprised if that goes also.
Then her car is at Manchester airport and she’s can’t contact anybody to extend. All will be well in the end.
3 of us in and going with Micky Flanagan from 1015. I like a larf.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FELLOW CLARETS.XX

Pump up the GBX, tear into a few crates of beverage and celebrate leaving the transition period @ 11pm.

Then an hour later celebrate leaving this wretched year behind.

All the best.

Jordan North, who looks a bit tanked up, did write ‘I love Sean Dyche’ on his iPad as the answer to a question, but it’s been fairly dross other than that.
