    You too! Strangers telling their stories to you. Wonderful that you became such good friends. I’m not a big fan of fireworks either, but my husband likes to do them each year and the children love to see them. Even our dogs never seem bothered by the noise and want to join us. You sound like you had a good half term. Fun cookies and clever of you to cut out the rest freehand. Back to school is never easy, is it? #MMBC

      Yes, it seems like a talent that a few of us possess. Most people avoid me because I have a natural miserable looking face. Thankfully Robert didn’t because he’s a great friend, even if he did sort of freak me out with our first encounter. 🙂
      We’re settling into the Back to School routine now. x

    It sounds like a lovely half term for you all.
    I really don’t like fireworks either. They hurt Ellie’s ears. Even though she’s deaf in one the other does double the work and I guess they must seem louder to her. The kids were watching them from the bedroom windows last night, running from the front to the back of the house. lol
    How lovely to have a friend like that from the school yard.x

    Hi Anne, I bet Ash is happy his jewels are still there to lick for another day, but it would have been nice to have got the op out of the way. Things like that play on my mind until they’re done… Love the gingerbread monsters! It just goes to show you don’t have to brave the cold to have a fun Halloween… For me the best thing about the school holidays was not having to stress about getting my son out the door (he has no sense of time and takes an hour doing things that should take five minutes – still). He was exactly the same with fireworks or loud noises and still is to a degree, but we no longer go to anything noisy… How lovely that Star enjoyed her firework evening, it just goes to show what an influence a good friend can be… Isn’t it funny how we come about some friends? I think most people would have wondered about a strange man showing them his wounds, but I find the quirkiest people make the best friends.

    Thank you for sharing your week at the #keepingitreal link up.
