It's dark outside. I hear fireworks. I see colourful stars in the sky. Only it isn't new year, yet. It's half past nine and I'm home alone waiting till the clock strikes twelve.
My mum is at work, but she will be home at eleven. My dad is at his friend's house and so is my younger brother. This is definitely the most quiet new years eve, that I've ever had. And do you know what? I like the quietness. I can relax and do my own thing without anyone telling me what to do.
Before my dad went out to his friend's house I cleaned the house a bit and washed the dishes up after cooking. After that I took down some Christmas decorations and now I'm watching a cabaret show on television. Relaxing with a few candles around and in the living room with my laptop. Wow, it's so relaxing!
