Lindsay and I celebrated New Year's Eve by not going out; our only gesture towards the festival was to watch the fireworks on the South Bank 2-3 miles away from John William's window at the top of the house. Its not a very good view, not only because its so distant, but also because there are some trees in the way. Then we took a hot water bottle to bed with us. JW, needless to say, was out on the tiles until daylight, and this evening he's going to Alastair's.
The pictures below are of dinner on December 30, with Jay and Jeremy, their house guest Innocent, who is at Atlantic College, and JW.
