Today we dropped Nanny and Poppy off at the train station in Newcastle. They are off on a holiday. I hope they have a wonderful time (I’m sure they will )
Later in the evening we went to carols by candlelight with some new friends. The boys enjoyed seeing santa arrive with the RFS. They were allowed to climb up into the fire truck and have a look. Will found some friends from school to run about with. We took some candles but only managed to get one lit for about 30 seconds before it blew out. The music was good but the fireworks stole the show. They were really wonderful this year, and the first time we have watched them so close. I was suprised at Eli’s reaction to the fireworks, I thought he would be upset by the noise, but he thought they were wonderful. Appreciative ohhhs and ahhhhs all round. A busy day, followed by a wonderful evening, topped off with fireworks and a relaxing stroll home.
