Tag: <span>Guy Fawkes</span>

One birthday party which seems to have gone very well, and was attended by virtually every single blogger on my “must meet before I die or contract leprosy” list.

One birthday.

The delivery of one mug (no smart comments, thank you).

A Halloween party but no probs there as I’m very ‘humbug’ about dressing up like an idiot.

Guy Fawkes night which is a bit of a bummer as I wanted to test the new camera!

My own self-imposed ‘redesign deadline’. Too much going on at the moment, but more on that, later.

And yes, when things calm down a bit I might even get back to posting properly!

The leaves are turning, the nights are “fair drawing in”, and there is a chill on the wind. Winter jackets are extracted from the back of the wardrobe – what does that mean? My wardrobe has a pole running across it, not front to back – and are drawn tightly around goose-bumped bodies. I do like this part of autumn, same as I like the start of spring. I enjoy change.

And so, as October draws to a close, the kids start dressing up for Halloween. As they wander past the Christmas trees in shop windows, they stop to stare at the Guy Fawkes fireworks whizzing and banging overhead…

Hang on, that’s not right. Is it?

I realise that Halloween and Guy Fawkes are pretty close to each other on the calendar, but what is with the Christmas trees? It’s still October! Is this commercialisation getting worse or am I just noticing it more as I grow older (and yes, it’s probably a bit of both).
