On the last day of 2013 we watched the first two episodes of Monkey. Only fifty more to go. I downloaded my first game for the Playstation 3, Ni No Kuni. The Playstation 4 is already out but I do not plan to buy one. Alex drew us four wonderful cards celebrating the day, did them entirely by himself. I tidied up a little, but in this heat it is difficult to do much. I overcooked dinner on the barbecue. I swam in the pool at night, enjoyed the lights and watched aircraft on descent into Sydney.
I am recording Spaceballs, having now introduced Alex to Star Wars.
The song of the night is One Word from Murray Gold's soundtrack to Doctor Who: The Snowmen. Happy 50th Doctor Who and goodbye Matt Smith, hello Peter Capaldi.
The fireworks at 10.30 pm were brief. I hope the couple in the convertible Audi will not be back for the midnight fireworks to block our view from the top of the driveway.
Alex fell asleep after 11 pm.
It is less than an hour until midnight.
I don't have much to say about 2013 other than I loved the time with my little family. My travel highlights from 2013 are more interesting.
Update: Happy New Year! Fireworks photos from the driveway.
