New Year's Eve has come and gone here. Currently 8am on Jan 1, and expecting the first day of 2006 to be an absolute stinker - supposed to be 40 degrees plus (that's 104 plus in Fahrenheit). We had a few drinks at a mate's place and enjoyed watching their new big screen with projector.

Of course for a dog owner New Year's Eve is never that happy. Poor little Anya was barking mad at the official fireworks at midnight, but even more so at all the little firework displays around the place, especially the dickheads who love to set them off at 1am (because that's really midnight during daylight savings) and then the ones that went off at 2:30am - took a long time for her to settle down. Considering fireworks are illegal in NSW, apart from the official public displays, it's always interesting to hear/see how many people seem to have been able to get their hands on the bloody things.

Hope 2006 gets off to a great start for all of you.

  • Current Mood: hot Stinking hot
Fireworks are illegal in NSW now
Have been for a while - you used to be able to get a fireworks permit from WorkCover (Dept of Workplace Health & Safety?) to have a display at home/school etc, but they tightened up the regulations a few years ago. I think you can still get them fairly freely in Canberra.

All the best for 2006!!
