Happy New Year - welcome to 2012

Happy New Year

The fireworks in London were spectacular and were set off from Big Ben as the clock struck 12.  I watched from the comfort of my sofa but they were pretty amazing on the TV.  Let's hope 2012 is a really good year for one and all.  


  1. Happy New Year to you, too!
    We saw the fireworks on iBBC yesterday - I liked the beginning, like in your photo, but wasn't so sure about some of it later on. Didn't like the music and sometimes the fireworks were a bit of an overkill, like a wall of white light...? Seen better, I'm afraid.

  2. They were fantastic, we watched from the comfort of the sofa at my parents too. I was so glad to get to see the new year in with Big Ben this year!
