What are you planning for New Year’s Eve? Going out to celebrate? Or will you have a quiet night at home?

Maggie and I are going to a New Year’s Eve party at a neighbour’s home, so we can walk there and back — and drink as much as we like without having to worry about driving. But we’ll have to bundle up: a deep freeze is settling in here that will see temperatures plummet as low as minus-30C at night . . . Brrr . . . No nudism for me in the next little while, indoors or outdoors . . .

And you?
