With the weather here in the UK typically miserable, we have as we have got older and (wiser?) stopped going out on New Years Eve, opting for a quiet family affair.
This year with Mum still in hospital, a new year full of promise starts full of concern and worry and a fair amount of contemplation. We did opt to stay in, we watched the fire works at London and rang Australia to talk to my family who are so very dearly missed.
Here are the fireworks from a cold, wet and windy London.
And from my home and family to yours Happy New Year. May 2014 be everything you wish for.
