We saw in the New Year, after what was personally a good 2015 considering the backdrop of horrible world events. Central London's fireworks is now a ticketed event and the barriers and cordons had started to go up at least a couple of days ago.
This morning, we had the first frost of the season, although it was only a light dusting only noticeable from certain angles.
Our central heating had packed up too. It turned out to be an unexpected consequence of the outdoor Xmas lights, which had tripped a circuit breaker for the whole of downstairs. I've spent a few minutes resetting various devices after restoring the power and re-booting the house.
We now have heat although I think the outdoor lights have now served their annual purpose and may soon be back in their box in the garage.
