Bobby's new medication seems to be doing its job. He slept like a peaceful baby for much of the day, enjoyed a car ride to fill it up with petrol and had three short walks. Though I felt shattered for most of the day I decided to stay up to see if there would be any fireworks in the village at midnight. This time I had adjusted the camcorder before the event instead of leaving it to the last moment like previous years. I was surprised just how many people seem to have had a firework display to welcome in the New Year and I took about six minutes of video. This is a short selection made by overlaying two different sections of the video to make it a bit more colourful. Fortunately the camcorder doesn't show just how deafening some of them were. It is a good job that Bobby takes little notice of such noises.
Once all the excitement died down we both retired to get a good night's rest.
My very best wishes to all for a happy, peaceful 2012 and many thanks for the good wishes which have been left for Bobby.
