Roasted chestnuts ......
a freshly opened bottle of 10 year old brandy .....
and a particularly scary looking, personally carved pumpkin. What more do you need for a successful Hallowe'en?
Oh yeah, the children.
After 3 or 4 years, Joseph is now fully versed in the 'knocking-on-doors-and-scaring-people-to-death" etiquette but it's all quite new to Annabel. She was so excited and had a great time, and she only refused to walk down 2 garden paths thanks to their overly realistic ghosts and ghouls hanging above the front doors.
She enjoyed it right up to the point where she told me, "one more house Dad and that's it, we're going home ok? I'm getting tired".
It was ok though; she enjoyed opening the door to the hardier types who kept on coming until the "treats" ran out!
