Bang

The problem with celebrating Guy Fawkes in the Southern Hemisphere is that it doesn’t get dark until very late at night.  Which means that just when I want to go to bed is when the neighbours’ fireworks hit their peak.  So I was awake reading for a long time last night, because there was no point even attempting to sleep with all the bangs from all around, and from the sounds of things it’s going to be the same tonight, because the first few explosions have just gone off across the street.

Good thing it’s nearly the weekend…
