Sounds so autumnal SD. If OH get's home early enough tomorrow we may be but he is on shift. I do love bonfires and the dressing up bit, warm clothes mittens etc.It's been raining a lot here today so don't know if any fires have been going this evening. Have a good time yourself SD XX
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
I didn't even bother looking out my window, and there seemed to be plenty around us last night.
I did remember how a firework came close to changing my life.
I was about 8 and we had been setting off fireworks, and one, a roman candle, didn't go off, so we left it as you should.
Well we finished them off about half an hour later, and I went over to look at the dead one. I was bending down to look at it, when it suddenly came to life and shot up straight through my hair, I lost a chunk of fringe, and a little on top. If I had been literally 1 second earlier one of my eyes would have been directly over that roman candle as it spurted.
Even now, it gives me a shiver. My whole life as it is today, spun on that single second..........
I so feel for those children who were just a single second less lucky than I.
The town fireworks display was on Friday night - could see it through upstairs window, and loads more were let off Sat and Sunday nights. I stayed in with Fred - he's usually terrified of them, but this year I bought an Adaptil plug-in and he has been so much calmer. Definately worth the money for us.
