Happy New Year, Everyone!
Happy new year, all!
These little pics are from the early eddition of the New Year fireworks ont he Foreshore - they put on one set at 9 in advance of the session at 12. Needless to say, the place was packed with children, all twirling glow-sticks and tumbling handstands on the grass. Fireworks tore the early evening sky apart with delightful gusto, satisfying brevity and to intense childish satisfaction.
Small episode of hillarity as we queued endlessly to get out of the car-park and turned the radio on: didn't know what the tune was but it turns out it was Beyonce's 'all the single ladies' (or some such) and she was grooving away in the back there going 'oohh oohh ooohhgh, oh oh ooogh, If you really like it you should've put a ring on it" as if someone were prodding her in the ribs (which on later investigation we found out is pretty much the way Beyonce delivers it herself). Seems it's a favourite with some of the girls at school. A final moment of giggling kindergarten-insight for the outgoing year.
