At 7 p.m. eastern time, I was watching the New Year celebrations in England. It started with Big Ben chiming midnight, and then the fireworks over the river Thames, and The London Eye.
I got to welcome it in then, as I was born there, and am English. Now I am curled up on the sofa waiting a few minutes now for the ball to drop in Times Square. Double celebrations for me.
Again, a glorious New Year.
