Happy New Year 2015

Here in Germany, the New Year is almost twelve hours old already, so time for the first post of 2015.

And if you’re looking for something to read, the good folks at OmniLit/All Romance e-books are running a New Year’s Day sale, which means you get 50% off many e-books, including all of mine.

I celebrated New Year’s Night by watching Dinner for One. Afterwards, we headed out to have dinner at our favourite local Italian restaurant. They had a special four course New Year’s Eve menu. Here are some photos:

Antipasto platter

As a starter, we had an antipasto platter.


Pasta course: Fettucine with pesto and parmesan


Main course: Rumpsteak with tomato cream sauce with capers, potatoes, mediterranean vegetables and salad.

Panna Cotta

Dessert: Panna Cotta

Hot chocolate

And an after-dinner hot chocolate.

We were home by about half past ten. I got on the computer to check my e-mail and talk to people in places where the new year had already started or where it wouldn’t start for several hours yet.

At midnight, we toasted the new year with champagne and then went outside for the fireworks. I tried to take photos and even managed to get a few decent shots – not easy with fireworks, particularly unplanned ones.




More fireworks


Fireworks with moon.

After the fireworks, we headed over to our neighbours for an hour and had a glass of Hugo (the cocktail, not the rocket-shaped award). After that, I was a bit tipsy and went home, checked the internet once more and went to bed.

So here’s a happy and healthy new year to all my readers and blog followers!
