A New Millennium!

It's all over!!! The world survived the millennium bug, the coming month the environment will work hard to get rid of all the pollution caused by the fireworks and life will continue as before for most people.
As for me, I am proud to announce that I have survived last night gloriously. In our street, the bangs were so loud that you couldn't understand each other even when shouting. The family had switched on the TV as loud as possible so that I wouldn't be scared too much, but guess what?! I never blinked one eye!!! I sat quietly on my perch and let it all come over me. Jan was so proud of me that he announced he would kiss me in the morning.
Today is not only the start of a new millennium. It also happens to be a very special anniversary for all of us. Exactly one year ago, on 1 January 1999, I came to live with the family. Which means that I am one year and five weeks old today!
