Its just gone 2014 here in Newcastle, Australia. I was going to get an early night until I remembered the local louts like to get insanely drunk and set off tons of expensive fireworks. Theres a law here that says don't, but every year they do, and this year they out-bolded themselves. It was all very pretty, and all very dangerous at a time of high fire danger. Its a shame that I still havent managed to take any photographs, I was too busy trying to calm Tom who was really freaked out. I think next year we will go bush. Its all settled down now, so I can go to bed but not before wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2014 Good night!
