Finally, after weeks of skeletons, witches, gravestones and spiders in the stores, Halloween is here. Emma went off "trick-or-treating" with her friends, and Rob decided he was too old to do likewise this year. This is the first year we have not had to go door-to-door with them. We stayed at home with a couple of glasses of wine.
Emma dressed as a witch (at least it didn't matter that she hadn't combed her hair!). It is unusually warm today, its 7pm and we have the patio doors open to let some air in. It is also very windy, and we suspect that Emma will have lost her pointy hat by the time she returns.
Never mind the ghosts and ghouls, the really scary thing is that tomorrow the stores will have the Halloween costumes on a sale rack, and the Christmas decorations will have been brought to the front.
