Halloween seems like a long time ago now but I wanted to share my little trick or treat table display from Monday Night.
We had a bit of a hectic Halloween. My daughter was late home from work and Graham went to pick her up. The weather was abysmal, the traffic even more so and there was an accident shutting off some of the roads. This meant they were really late back. Our hopes of a spooky Halloween spread for dinner were dashed and we ended up ordering in a pizza.
The Little Man had hoped to go out trick or treating, but it was too late in the end. Thankfully, I hadn’t spent any money on his costume as he was going to wear his sister’s kigurami Gengar onsie.
We did have lots of callers who were very polite and well dressed up, and also very brave making it out in the rain. Thankfully, I had been storing up lots of sweet treats to share out, we even had some left over.
There were some tricksters though. Someone went around taking all the pumpkins and leaving them in the middle of the road where they were driven over and we had a street full of big orange blobs. It seemed a bit of a waste, but I guess the pranksters thought it was funny.
We didn’t go to a firework display. But we saw plenty from our own windows. We haven’t really done much on bonfire night for ages, maybe we should remedy that next year. Fingers crossed we are healthy. I am now looking forward to the fair and light switch on in Bournville. It’s one of my favourite times of year. This year it’s on my birthday so it will be a lovely treat.
