2015 can get the f*%@ out

2015-new-year

 

It’s that time of year again when we say ‘goodnight’ to the old, and ‘leave the curtains closed’ in the morning (afternoon) of the new.

2015 has had it’s ups, downs & horizontals but once more tis the time for new beginnings, so in the words of Bill Keane:

 

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, which is why we call it the present.”

 

…that being said, remember when partying over New Years eve that water is your friend, guzzle down a load of the stuff during the night to help avoid a pain-filled spinner beginning to the year, like the people in the pic below. Ouch!
