That Day When I was living on the top floor of the block, we could see out across the River Mersey and the surrounding area and the sky would would be filled with fireworks as far as the eye could see. We'd turn the lights off, put a CD on, and just watch in awe. Didn't happen tonight. We've moved to a much lower flat in a different block surrounded by tall trees and other blocks and we couldn't see a thing. For the first time in years I went out tonight instead, to my World Music course. When I got home, the disappointment in my parents was palpable. Every family has traditions, yearly highlights, and its always a shame when they don't happen for whatever reason. Next year then.
