Spending new years with my parents

I am at my parents house now and I will spend new years with them. I decided to ask my neighbour if she’d keep a look out for my packages, which were meant to arrive today. She said she would, so she put a notice on my front door, to let the delivery driver know to drop the packages in to her house. I was going to wait until they arrived before going to my parents, but John, the taxi driver I always get is only working a half day today, and I was afraid the packages wouldnt arrive before he finished up for the day. I don’t like having to get other drivers to take me, because, more often than not they are complaining about dog hair in their cars. When I arrived at mom and dads, I had a cup of tea, and then, a text came in, to say my packages would arrive between 12:30 and 1:30 this afternoon. I texted my neighbour to let her know. Mom is doing really well, she said she has a slight pain in her lung, but its nothing out of the ordinary. She does get pain in her lungs most days. She said its like a slight niggling pain. She took a lemsip which has paracetamol in it. Our weather is nice today, its 9 degrees celcius right now, last night during the night it was very wet, and very windy. I got up at 3 AM to let Nitro out, and I almost got blown away when I opened the back door. I did not end up staying up late last night, like I had planned on doing. I was watching TV and on my recliner, and I fell asleep. When I woke up after about 30 minutes, it was 10 PM, so I decided to just go to bed. Like I said, I woke at 3 AM, and I was going to stay up, but I started to get sleepy after just 15 minutes, so I lay back down and promptly fell asleep until 6 AM! I am feeling great today after all of the sleep. Mom made a chicken curry for dinner, which I can’t wait to taste. She put red and yellow peppers, carrots, onions, garlic, frozen peas, and the chicken into it. We’re having it with rice and non bread. My aunt is supposed to come for a visit at some point this weekend to give us our christmas presents. She was sick before christmas, so she didnt come then. I had gotten her a gift voucher, so I am excited to give it to her. My sister also has to give us our secret santa gifts, my dad was rushing us the other day when we went to my sisters for dinner, so she forgot to give them to us. She’s back at work since yesterday, and she’s working on new years eve also. We have no plans for new years eve, there will probably be some fireworks going off, and we’ll watch the new years count down on the tv, mom and me will probably stay up until midnight but my dad probably wont. I want to get some reading done this weekend, so I am going to try to finish at least 2 books, this weekend if I can. I hope you all have a good Friday, and a nice new years weekend. If your celebrating, I hope you have fun, and if you arent, I hope you still have fun.
