Seeing in the New Year

Happy New Year

My parents always used to say that New Year’s Eve was the only night of the year they got to bed before midnight.

Well, we didn’t even manage that!

The photo is of fireworks seen from our balcony which looks down into the valley.

      It sounds very pleasant. We chinked glasses of home-made fruit brandy – wild cherry for him, peach for me. The music down in the valley was very loud and the fireworks went on popping sporadically for a long time.
