A Homely Bonfire Night

Wham bars and autumn flowers

I've had a few days absence from the blog as Little Bird is a bit poorly with a cough that has prevented him from sleeping much so he's been very niggly as a result. We stayed in for Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night - we had intended to do so anyway as I didn't think Little Bird was quite ready for the hustle and bustle of the town park's firework display. The dogs benefited from us being at home and we all cosied up in the sitting room with plenty of treats. Doggy fretting due to the loud bangs was therefore minimal this year as they were patted and pampered on the sofa.

I did enter the mood at home though by making treacle toffee, chilli and other treats and sneaking off to the loft room to see town's display (about a mile away) from the comfort of my skylight window. It was actually lovely looking out and seeing lots of little bonfire parties and hearing cheery people setting off colourful rockets. I know some people loathe them and I can see why but I do enjoy this time of year and the traditions.

Off to put another damp towel on the radiator now to try and stop some night time coughing and spluttering....... x

I hope your little bird is better soon but I always prefered staying inside nice and warm anyway and watch displays from the window. I do miss bonfire night over here x

I hope he is better soon, it is miserable to feel so unwell.
