Rounding up my NYear's Eve/Day...2011

Maybe, I am a bit of in a lazy mood...

After a hectic week b4 Christmas and NY, I feel decrepit. Colds is on and off. Working in this branch I am working with, isn't fun this time of the year. Every account must be close and every account must be clean b4 the year end. It's all accounts... our Nostro, Vostro & Loro accounts.

In a way, I kind a like my tasks, though. Just sometimes, there are times that I feded up but that is life, It "Must go on"... Living the real life? that's me!!!

My NY celebration was quite. D´Nics started at D´Box for a light lunch. As I told you ladies b4, each year, one of my cousins, gather us together. I wait my turn on year 2013. By that time, I know what to do and what to prepare.

As the year goes by, mine and my cousins kiddo's are growing so fast. It was the last NY last year that all of our kiddos joint with us. 2 big kiddos, my son & another cousin's son was not even during the dinner. This year, they asked if they can join their friends at midnight instead. Only 2 young ladies, both 15 yrs old were with us. Isn't that sad? When our children create their own lives? I realized now, how hurting it is. In 10 days, Lil Missy of D´Box is going to move in the university down south of Sweden. The lil house will be so empty.

Anyways, here was my NY lunch & Eve 2011...
Hope everyone had an enjoyable NYear's Eve welcoming 2012
