Firework Show

This is our sleepy village this morning
misty and grey.
It was all so very quiet as we walked the hounds.
So different to last night
when at midnight it erupted
to the noise and flashes of fireworks.
It was all very noisy, cheerful and bright
as we stood on our balcony watching.
Each of our neighbours set off
their own fireworks,
in the garden,
in the street.
It was quite a show!
But we couldn't linger
Rufus in particular doesn't like loud bangs.
So we went inside and kept all the hounds company.
In fact we celebrated new year twice.
Once on Central European Time
and again an hour later on British time!

It's been great keeping up with old friends
and making new ones
through this wonderful world of blogging.
Here's hoping that the new year brings everything that you wish for yourself.
And that lots of happiness comes your way.

Happy New Year!
