My dear friends,
let me wish you a very happy New Year! May all your wishes come true, like mine did.

For me it is going to be a very special, my first tropical New Year, so instead of Crimean champagne I will be drinking a coconut with local rum and ice, and I will be wearing very little, maybe just a bikini or a swimsuit. I haven’t yet got a new year tree at home either – I don’t see pines and fir-trees here at all.

I hope that you have had a nice Christmas party and a lot of presents. Let me wish you a nice celebration of the New Year’s Eve too, and a great time with the people who are dear to you.

Hugs and kisses,
Helen
