Bizarrely I have ended up with more wine then I started out with.

Which is a result.

Off to the meierei for some beer which is nice.

Happy new year, even to those who are peeping through the keyhole/windows. Good health, prosperity and love.

My cats are recovering from a terrifying day and even worse night, full of fireworks, especially the "screaming kitchen maids" which are worse than the bangers.

Next year the threatened ban on bangers will probably be through and we will have peace. Last night a man was killed when an illegal firework went off to early and blew up his face.

There are usually plenty of fireworks around here at midnight, but this year there were hardly any. It's clearly the baleful influence of Brexit.  Cool

My son learned his fireworks lesson the hard way when he was about 13. Second degree burns. He was lucky. Never touched fireworks since.

Fireworks here are truly insane. Health n safety leaves Germany for one night.

Fortunately I have gundogs who don't give a shit.

Concur. Does your lass still work in London sometimes? I'm sure she could get him sorted.

It's so hard on animals.

The buggers have started again this evening, though it is now illegal to use fireworks.

Hear, here! But I'm stuck with it.

Meanwhile, I'll be in the NE of NL from Jan 28 or so for three weeks. And Rosie lives in that region.

It's only a few hundred km from Potsdam. Get in the Maserati and let's have a Meet. I'll organise a B&B for you if you like. And it's your my round.

Just do it. (Bring a crate of Jever.)

Can't argue with that.

I make it only about a 6-hour drive from where I'll be to Potsdam. And I've never been in that part of D, including Berlin.

I was planning to buy a new bike in NL, on account of the better choice and value there, but I dare say D will do. Might even be cheaper. Has to be a step-through, on account of the arthritis. Nothing fancy.

Know what I'm saying?  Smiley

No. I'm doing it to get/keep fit. Give it a few more years.

My son bought one a couple of years ago -- German, as it happens. He says it doesn't go fast enough for his requirements.

My mother in law sent me a case of wine as a Christmas gift.  As I loaded it on the wine rack I thought, "Wow!  This will last for ages!"

 I've had the last week off of work.

There's 2 bottles left.

A wise man said, "You can't step in the same stream twice," but I find wet feet soon get caked with sand and grit.  That's very unpleasant, especially between the toes.  So when I go for a stroll I stay on the sidewalk.

Bottles left?! Shameful. You're obviously not trying hard enough.
