Halloween Chez Newman-Bloor

We had about eight trick or treaters call at the door on my watch and I think another two came after I went up to run George's bath. All in all we were almost cleaned out of sweets bar a couple of refreshers and a mini pack of haribo. George looked pretty cool in his skeleton costume and I scared my husband with my sugar skull make up!

Leaves and things

We took a trip to the whispering pools on Sunday early evening...

Along the path we found some branches had been cut down and from amongst the pile we picked up two.

We collected leaves from the pathways and seed heads from the verges

This, plus the small gourds from Gordon Rigg and the two large pumpkins from Asda make up our autumnal window display.

Bury Light Night

It was Saturday night, it must be Bury Light Night....we thought we would pop along the road and see what this was all about...arriving around 7.30 we parked by the leisure centre and walked into town, following the crowd...we saw a fire garden, a garden of illuminated inflatables and a park full of milk carton lanterns. There were stalls and installations and lots of people...apart from our own personal faux pas of not eating before we went (cured by finding a fish and chip shop!) it was most...illuminating,
