Then in the early evening we gathered with all the other decorated bikes and their riders and pets, behind the main street for our turn to ride in the New Year's Eve Parade.
There were the usual tractors, fire engines, motor bikes, brass bands and us. That's me and Pepper on the far left.
And there is Miss Indi on her yarn bombed bike.
Miss Jazzy refused to be in the parade for fear that she would miss out on the lollies lots of the floats throw out into the crowed as they pass by.
Miss Pepper did so well on her bike riding three circuits in all, but I have to say that her steering leaves a lot to be desired.
It was such great fun and quite emotional riding our bikes through the main street of our town being cheered on by thousands of people.
Later we partied on at Meg's and for the first time in forever, the five of us were together and awake counting down to the new year, hugging and kissing and waving sparklers around. We were at a party until after midnight!!!!!!
So lovely people, on this first day of our planet's 2011 circle around the sun (thanks Dad!), I wish you health and happiness and love and creativity and inspiration and passion and satisfaction and many, many completed projects.
What did you get up to? Hope you had fun.
Have a great one. XX
Eeeeeeeeeeeeekk, our caravan adventure is happening THIS YEAR!!!!!!
