The last time November 5th was a Friday night, I missed the traditional fireworks over the harbour in favour of another tradition, getting some beers in with the menfolk (dad, soon to be father-in-law, brother-in-law, and soon to be brother-in-law) before I got hitched the next day.
After 6 years for the days and dates to re-align, this November 5th was again on a Friday, and for the first time we watched the show as a family (which is a concept I am still getting used to)...
It was only Charlotte's second big public fireworks display. The first was the previous weekend, and she was a little over-awed.
Our anniversary falling on a Saturday also neatly coincided with us having no plans, engagements or other business for once. It's nice to have a day just for yourselves once in a while. We spent it hanging out in the city, going to lunch and generally chilling in each others company :)
