These were two of the pumkins carved by Vicki and the boys ....the had so much fun ....would you believe that someone stole the baby one that was in the mouth of the other.
Not wanting to waste the insides, Vicki baked Pumkin Flap Jacks ....so yummy ... and froze the remainder for later use. Robbie and Kris love 'Trick or Treating' ...and I had loads of scarey kiddies calling while they were out.
Vicki and our friend Caz were very brave ...they let Kris paint their faces ...Jay came home a little late so missed the painting part ...I feel she was secretly quite glad lol
This week is rushing by ....yesterday was Halloween ....no ...wait
.... this is Saturday already and fireworks have already been shattering
the eardrums since last night. I have to admit I am a bit of a kill joy
around the 5th. I wish they were banned for the saftey of animals and
children...and the others who think its fun to do stupid things with
them and waste NHS time and money.
Big displays are thought to be
the answer but I dont like them either ...fine for teens but I still
remember the hour of panic when I lost my son aged about seven. One
minute he was holding my hand , then he was gone ...I couldn't move as
it was so packed ...everyone said 'Dont worry he will be at the lost
tent' but it fell on deaf ears. After an agonizing hour I rushed to the
tent ...he was not there ...my heart sank ... like a stone into the pit of
my stomach ....I turned to stare at the thinning crowd ...in the
distance a man and boy walked hand in hand towards me ...the boy
frantically waving ...it was him ....big smile across his face ...not a
care in the world.
Apparently he had made his way to the front ...
near the music control desk ....he had been sat up on a pillar by the
fellow, to watch the display ...best view ever. The man appologised for
not taking him to the tent as soon as he was found but he couldn't get
there and Steve was enjoying himself so much and not worried at all.
didnt know what to do ...hug him or shout at him ....Steve that is, not the man....needless to say it
was the last display we went to....until they were teenagers and went on
Hope you have a great Fire Works Night ...which ever night you choose ...and which ever way you celebrate it.
Ignore me .... I'm just a grumpy old ****
Take Care xx
