Firecracker night at crazybrave's culdersac has become an annual ritual not to be missed. Lots of crackers, lashings of alcohol, charred pieces of pig and a dash of instrumental Bacharach on vinyl. This year the neighbours joined in, extending the pleasure even further. The kids loved it. The adults loved it. The animals didn't, but they got lots of love afterwards. I love the fact that I live within an easy drunken stagger from Zoe. Canberra is The Bomb. Can you tell I've had too much wine?
