how was your halloween?

How was your halloween? Mine was good but fairly uneventful and I didn't carve this rather spectacular cannibalistic pumpkin. My sister went all out for halloween this year, it seems! She says she saw the idea for this pumpkin somewhere on the internet but couldn't remember where. If it's your design... well done!
Here's my youngest niece, Ruth, dressed up as a witch. Ah! So cute! She's only just started eating real food and is apparently enjoying it.

I was on the phone to my sister on halloween night (hearing about the slime soup and witch's hair they had for dinner) and she said I should go and visit them before I start my new job. Ha ha, we said. Well, to cut a long story short, I am going to visit them. I booked my flights (they live in France) last night and I leave tomorrow morning. Hurrah! This sort of spontaneity is not at all like me and I'm a bit stressed. I have lots to get organised today before I leave. I'm doing a market on Sunday (Say No To Plastic, Oran Mor, 12-5) and won't get back until Saturday evening so have to take anything that needs doing with me. I've already axed one top product plan but, since I'll be employed as of the next day, profit making is not quite so vital as it once was. I will no longer starve if people don't buy much :)

Still here? This is the important bit: check back here later today for an announcement and a giveaway!


  1. Congratulations on getting the job! I'm glad our subtitles are in such good hands :)

  2. Thanks, Marceline :) The interviewers obviously value craftiness - there is a definite trend emerging among their staff..!


Hello! I'm sorry that I've had to turn on the word verification feature again, but my inbox was being flooded with very dull spam. Genuine comments always brighten my day though, so thank you for taking the time to leave one :)
