And it was really good! Interesting too to see the 'countryside' up close (as opposed to from a train or a motorway) and very leafy. Locals all a bit inbred though ("hey, look, six fingers - all the better to catch my cousin with")
I searched high and low for news of fireworks displays in the Borough area. It seemed there were none.
So I was pretty peeved when I saw a bunch of massive fireworks going off outside my kitchen window - but only to find it was the national lottery display outside the Tate. It lasted all of three minutes.
Ah well - maybe next year they'll do someting for us poor residents who don't live in the burbs?
There is the small matter that there probably isn't an open space in Borough which is large enough to meet current safety requirements on distance from spectators for a really impressive fireworks display!
