Happy New Year

So USAShoestring made it over in time to celebrate with us, in spite of the fog so we were very happy about that. MasterShoestring went to his first New Year party and we stayed in as usual ! 2017 is going to be a new start for us and I have a number of frugal challenges planned which I will start to share tomorrow but in the meantime I leave you with the words of our favourite New Year carol as we'll be singing around the tree until January 5th, the traditional 12th night !

Here we bring new water from the well so clear,
For to worship God with, this happy New Year.

Chorus (after each verse):
  Sing levy-dew, sing levy-dew, the water and the wine,
  The seven bright gold wires and the bugles that do shine.

Sing reign of Fair Maid, with gold upon her toe;
Open you the West Door and turn the Old Year go.

Sing reign of Fair Maid, with gold upon her chin;
Open you the East Door and let the New Year in.
