Seeing in the New Year
Where were you at midnight?
Whilst she who must be obeyed was sick in bed with 'flu I went up smoke.
The evening started in The Salisbury in St. Martin's Lane for a pre-prandial drink.
Dinner at Masala Zone was the usual success then we joined 250,000 others in trying to watch the fireworks.
What we could see of them was quite impressive.
We ended up in Trafalgar Square, watching it on the TV screen but the atmosphere was very good despite the fountains not being available nowadays. Last time I celebrate the New Year in London, about 45 years ago, we had no fireworks but managed to have fun despite having to sleep on the floor somewhere in Regent St. Poly and then going to work in the morning.
