Every year since we came back from our stint in America, we attend the matinee performance of the local pantomime.
This year it is:
We try to get there early and have lunch out. We take a large bag of snacks with us that the girls seem to enjoy and they are threatened not to ask for any of the tatt that is on sale in the foyer.
We book early so we can get front row seats. I hate it when people block the view of young children.
We stop off at the local pub for an hour on the way home, this being Mum and Dad's time. The previous landlords were really good with children and had little treats waiting for them.
Back at the house we put on party music and have a little disco along with a hot buffet.
The children are allowed to stay up a bit later, this year I think we will be adding a movie into our agenda.
Then we ship them all off to bed. Have a few quiet drinks, while trying to find something entertaining on TV. I generally fall asleep on the sofa, get woken up at midnight to go to bed, lol.
Do you have a particular routine you follow on New Years Eve.
