You can view this post in one of two ways. Either I am late for 2012 or early for 2013…
Halloween. On Tuesday I was busy preparing food for a curry evening and Tim was given the job of carving the pumpkins. In the kitchen Tim is regarded as ‘unskilled labour’, so is generally given any job that Gaynor doesn’t fancy doing!
His and Hers!
Rhiannon and Stuart carved these in the UK. The wonders of modern technology mean that I can share them. They are keen to point out that the 'Hello Kitty' bow was cut out and coloured by his young niece!
Considering they were the first and second pumpkins that Tim has ever carved he did a pretty good job. So good, in fact, that it attracted the visit of a group of ghouls, witches and black cats!
Last night the Minos, a children’s club in Le Petit-Pressigny, came to frighten us in their quest to fill their baskets with bonbons. Luckily we had a large box of Quality Street so we opened the door and in they streamed. The adults were more reticent and insisted on staying outside. Then we realised why. They were guarding a trailer half full of bonbons!
We were very pleased that they felt they could knock on our door. We're hoping that half term is late again next year so that we can be 'chez nous'.
We’ll also buy a box of more child friendly bonbons – jelly spiders, sour snakes and chocolate cats!
