Once Christmas is over, you are suddenly stuck in those few days of limbo where you are still wearing pyjamas in the afternoon and eating chocolates for dinner. Before you know it, your thoughts start to turn to the next milestone: New Year's Eve.
New Year's Eve is always a night full of anticipation where you are supposed to have elaborate plans or so many party invitations that you can't decide which to attend!
However, it is often a bit of an anti-climax and staying up until late is much more challenging than you remember. This only gets more noticeable once you are a new parent.
Paying a small fortune to get into a club then queuing for a taxi at 4am? Not these days!
