31st October :: Halloween.
Much excitement in the Attic24 Household.
7.30am and I give in to huge pester power....
....go down to the cellar to search for the box marked "Halloween"
Re-discover favourite decorations from past years.
Sling bits of colourful orange Pumpkin Tinsel and morbid black Skull Tinsel around the place.
Decorate our front door with hanging Black Cat, Spider and Pumpkin.
Out into the street in our pyjamas to check that they are suitably visible from the pavement.
Find plastic Pumpkin plates, load up with spiders and Halloween chocolates for Little People and Friends to tuck into later on.
Allow Little People top eat one chocolate each for breakfast.
Bake buns and ice.
Decorate with Raisin spiders (Teena, I borrowed this idea from you, hope you don't mind?).
Refuse to let Little People eat these for breakfast too.
11am and the Little People go out (LM to his friends house for a play date lunch, LL to her Grandparents for a Baking Day).
I decide belatedly to go do battle for a Pumpkin (yes tut-tut I go to the Supermarket, oh the shame).
A few lonely pumpkins remain in the box and triumphantly I bring one home.
I adore carving pumpkins and am secretly glad that the Little People are not here.
Because I can do it By Myself.
Enjoy it hugely.
We have very good friends coming to stay the weekend.
We shall drink much wine, dress up and go to a Halloween party this evening.
I shall go as a cat. Meow.
Need to go find black clothes to wear.
Guests arrive in approximately 3 hours.
Need to clean and tidy entire house for invited guests.
Need to make space for them to sleep in the Attic.
Have sooo much to do.
Is 12.45pm too early to start drinking wine?
Happy Halloween everyone.
