Apart from pretending to be freaked out by the mini vampires and hobgoblins at the door, and distributing sweets to the neighbourhood kids whilst we’re about it, we’re not doing anything for Halloween this year. In fact, now that Petit Man is less petit, we rarely bother any more, so there are no cleverly carved pumpkins or spooky costumes to photograph and show you.
Once upon a time though, we had a ridiculously over-the-top party involving invitations designed like ancient spell books, the entirety of the ground floor of the house being ‘papered’ in printed vinyl sheets, and the front garden being turned into a cemetery, complete with tombstones and an open grave.
…ghosts in the mirrors…and spiders on the walls.
Everyone dressed up, the cocktails flowed and very merry time was had.
If you’re celebrating this Halloween, I hope you have a fantastic time…take care of each other and stay safe!
