A bit late...
Hallowe'en has gone for another year and much fun it was too. The highlight of our evening has to be playing Banana Pinata, that little known game where you and the children spend much time glueing and sticking endless torn pieces of newspaper to a balloon in order to create a skull to fill with aweets. The general idea is that the pinata - should be a squiggly thing over the 'n' but can't do that on my keyboard - should be hit by all present till it breaks revealing the sweeets. In our case Dave decided we should take it in turns hitting it with a banana...hmm. It was very funny if extremely messy and a perfect game in the lead up to our favourite one of Bite the Apple which always provides plenty of shots for the family album where we apparently torture our children.
As to dressing up, we had a monk, a devil or two - very cute ones in the form of Lucy and Isabella though her outfit lasted all of two minutes before she stripped off the dress and accompanying Father Christmas hat! - Rasputin and verious other witchy people present. I was a black cat, though as usual I left getting ready to the last possible moment and then rushed so had no tail or ears.
All good fun, but now I must turn my attention fully toward Christmas as I always do when the half term holiday is over, and judging by my order emails I am not the only one. A Christmassy picture as I head off on the school run before settling down with the sewing machine and Radio 4.
Bye for now x
