New Year in Wheaton Aston

We piled in the big green (not so green) vehicle to Wheaton Aston to celebrate New Year with Alan's mum. We took food, champagne and chinese lanterns with us - determined to see the 2012 in properly.
Firstly there was some dressing up (as I haven't had a chance to wear this dress in the two years I've owned it) My purple hair has faded to a dusky lilac but will have to be dyed brown for work soon anyway.

 Up, up and away

A not so successful launch, we aborted the operation due to high winds and decided to try again on January 1st.
