we see 9 pm fireworks from a high plateau above bondi
looking towards the city
a loada people gathered up there
white wine
eskies etc
charmless youths with a mishmash of last 40 years of fashion
usually the worst n most inappropriate bits
a lot wearing those stupid little cutesy hats
guffawing n pushing n stuff…
woofle sits on my shoulders to watch
i love the greem ones best she says
we go home
i listen to beatles on balcony
one night of year you can blast yer music
but all around is relentless doof doof doof
like the drums of doom
at midnight the fireworks explode again
i just cant get too excited
some neat tricks with the hubba bridge tho
looks like its burning
the kids go to sleep
me n nk (over) indulge in everything
hell it was new years eve
wake up today
feeling sore and sorry
go down beach
its warm and steamy and raining slightly
but the sun is kinda breaking thru too
swim in the sea with all five daughters
nice to see em together
have mexican for lunch
have sno cones at beach
have bubble tea after
wow costs a fortune but it is new years day
come home
nap and wake up feeling groggy
stumble around
write blog
early night i suspect

    Woke up on New Year´s day
    (a world in white gets underway?)
    10 C below 0
    A sunny snowy day
    and the air feels electric

    kylskåpet tomt
    min andra hälft är bakis
    vad göra?

    Went skating a while
    along river Svartån
    listening to some
    Church-SK-songs on my Ipod
    Such a lovely way to begin 2010!

    Happy new year Steve
    and all TTB-ers!

    Welcome to a new decade SK. Certainly hope you got your over indulgence out of the way for the next ten years! (Well the ones that make you feel rough anyway.) What a beautiful vision you provided, Mr K and his five lovely daughters swimming in the sea. Definitely an event to be filed under ‘cherished memories’.

    Hope you got your early night, and make sure you rest whenever you can, cos me thinks you will be a busy (killa)bee this year, and we’ll be hear waiting to hear all about it!!!

    Every New Years Eve in America the television stations feature highlights of the spectacular Sydney fireworks display. Fireworks are another form of man's incessant attack on nature. They frighten wildlife with noise pollution and frightening visual stimuli. A huge suicide bomber attack just killed over 70 people in Pakistan.

    Here's to hoping The Church keep up the momentum in 2010.

    Spot on Brien!

    My beloved Staffordshire bull terrier, Sadie (who I sadly had to have put to sleep in 2007,) became more and more frightened of this damn flashes and noises as she got older. New Year's Eve 2006, I came home to find her panting like crazy, bloody everywhere in my kitchen and every glass I possessed smashed to pieces all over the floor. My poor loyal pet had got so frightened it appeared she'd managed to open the cupboard door, then proceeded to empty it so she could hide! I just felt so guilty for leaving her to cope on her own with such a frightening experience. I HATE fireworks for this reason amongst many. Whilst the colours are pretty and when set to the right music, and done by professional pyrotechnics, are a work of art, personally I think they should be banned.

    Sparklers, eski and the kids running around in the park. Fireworks in the distance shrouded by trees. When everyone else shouts at the beginning I prefer the whisper.
