All dressed up and no one came to call!
The pumpkin was carved, candles were lit, the spider webs and skeletons arranged, and a huge orange flag wishing everyone a "Happy Holloween", flapped in the rain outside last night. It was obviously not enough to tempt anyone to bravely knock on the door on a rather damp Halloween evening and I gave fist-fulls of chocolate and sweets to our guests for the four and a half hour journey home this morning!.... It could be a journey more dreadfull than anything that that happened yesterday as the two boys fill up with sugar and E numbers in the back of the car!
There was so much action in the village last night at both the Thatched Inn and The Big Sheep that obviously Steve and I couldn't compete!
I could suggest I made Steve dress up and sit with me on the bottom of the stairs all night waiting for a "Trick-or-Treater" (see picture) but strangely he was very late home from work, then unhappily tucked into his "dead men's fingers and slime" for dinner!
