A ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, Aaaa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
My favourite part of the year has arrived and I am utterly thrilled by today. Admittedly, I was mildly dissapointed to find Tesco had sold out of Pumpkins as I’d woken up this morning with a strange urge to carve one. However, I had left it way too late for such purchases and I probably would have carved more out of myself that the actual pumpkin itself if I’d been let loose with a massive thing like that and a knife!
After applying my spooky Kate Moss No.30 lipstick and feeling rather chuffed with myself that I’d coloured my lips inside the lines for once, I spent the morning taking blog photo’s outside and cuddling my black (and white) cat. For lunch, I made a very yummy bowl of linguine with mushroom and mackerel in tomato sauce whilst watching a bit of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! I felt, at that moment, as though I was getting Halloween just right. I have also collected some leaved from outside and plan on making a few Autumnal decorations for tonight’s spooky evening. I’m watching Most Haunted Live, which has finally returned! I’m very excited as I used to watch it way back when and it was a real spooky laugh! When it’s Halloween, do as the ghouls do, right?
Whilst I adore this time of year and equally Halloween and get more excited on the morning of Halloween than I do on Christmas morning, I can’t say I ever go overboard with decorations or attend parties or make amazing crafts. And I definitely don’t answer the door to any trick or treaters. I’ve had far too many scary experiences with scream masks and eggs and the like to put myself through that trauma anymore. So, I’m putting up one of those signs the police are handing out that say “no trick or treaters please” or something like that to keep them away! Maybe slightly mean, but I always jump and panic when the door goes in the daylight on a normal day, so goodness knows what state I’d be in by midnight tonight! Also, I’ve devised a little plan… I have bought one of those cute little pink buckets with a pumpkin face on the front, which I wam going to t tie to the tree by my front door, which I am going to top up during the evening with sweets! I think it’s a good idea, providing they don’t steal the bucket or leave the bucket and just steal all the sweets! Oh dear, the perils of my favourite day!
