Remember, remember ...

             Remember, remember the fifth of November
                 Gunpowder, treason and plot.
         I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
                       Should ever be forgot ...

Well, The Exec never forgets. Look what he came home clutching last night with a big grin on his face!


So there will be fireworks tonight! And the annual scorched lawn in the morning.

Are you celebrating tonight? Toasting a few marshmallows, perhaps? Lighting a banger in a cow pat and running off really fast?


Whatever you're doing, have fun and remember, remember that your pets might not like sparklers as much as you do. Although our rabbit seems to lap it all up!

I had to look this one up, Rach. What a fascinating story. Have fun with your fireworks, and hopefully your lawn won't be too fried in the morning! XX

Great to see you're back on line, Bon! We had lots of fun and there's a big black splodge on the grass. Hehehe!

I feel like a real old fogey; now dd has left home, we'd rather stay in on Nov 5th - but we do have a magnificent view of the fireworks at the local cricket club from the comfort of our own house.

Not a fogey, Phillipa, believe me, if it wasn't for The Exec it would be sparklers only! Speaking of which, I'm sure they don't last as long as they used to ...
