Here in the UK many of us love to celebrate Halloween but compared to the Americans I think we are more subdued in what we wear with many of us dressing as cats, witches and skeletons.
For the last few years my hubby and I have been to a giant geocaching event in Northamptonshire. This spooktacular event is hosted at a different place every year and the caches are themed. If you go walking in that area don’t be surprised to see Aragog and his offspring, Sid the hissing snake or a coffin rented from St John’s Ambulance playing host to a bandaged dummy – I mean mummy.
We got lost once and I recall someone saying that the hosts must have paid a lot on the things in that area till we had the fright of our life as we realised we’d stumbled across a real life crash site!
It sure is a great event with it taking in so many visitors that it becomes a Mega event. Sadly this year it has been postponed for a couple of the hosts are expecting babies this year. My daughter was also born this year and taking a bottle fed baby for a day may have been too much to cope with anyway. So we wait in hope that the event will return next year and we can visit with her.
Meanwhile, I've put up a little Halloween decor for her to get used to.
- She seems fascinated by the bat that hangs in the wreath.
- I’ve swapped out the cushions
- My favourite green glass is staying put – I can imagine them issuing out puffs of potion
- Little jack o lanterns feature purple tea lights
- A beanbag frog sits on a nest of purple tissue paper
- My sequinned cat bag sits pretty
- A Halloween book made for me in a swap one year (I keep meaning to fill it with the images of the caches we come across every year but it is just as lovely in its present form)
- A little Frankenstein cushion
