Happy Halloween!

When you live with small children, Halloween is basically one long sugar-fest, interspersed with a bit of craft and dressing up. May I present a selection of this year’s offerings…

Bats in the kitchen…

Spider in the sitting room..

…and a pumpkin in the garden!

If, after consuming too much sugar (in the form of stolen Haribo from the kids) you fancy a something a little more grown up for Halloween, then may I direct you to the writing of G H MacDonald.

A collection of Victorian, gothic and ghost stories, this writing is truly ‘forget-to-breathe-until-I-get-to-the-end’ stuff. I particularly love the Parisian story  ‘The Red Men’ which is stunning. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading this work as much as I do.

Happy Halloween everyone!
