Dressed up already (kids) in first costume change hmm

About to do pumpkins whilst awaiting mil and dog's arrival

Going to Halloween party at 3.30pm with some friends at this little softplay place

Trick or treating - unless as flipping freezing as yesterday night!

Nothing, DS going trick or treating for an hour with friends .

The girls and I are staying home because its freezing and dd4 is terrified of anything to do with Halloween .

I know I am a meanine but I have had too many years of dragging round lo's who cry they are cold and fed up and then go on a sugar high for days after angry.

I'm doing a halloween party for 7 boys tomorrow evening. I'm dreading it! I'm sure once I have a glass of red on board I shall be fine!

As for trick/treat, no can do. My DH is Australian and he's APPALLED at how once the Aussies had begun to throw of the nasty imperial yoke of British Culture in favour of -um- their OWN culture, what they ACTUALLY did was embrace American culture complete with making a HUGE deal out of Halloween! So he's very anti T & T.

Got a couple of DS's nursery friends coming round for a Halloween tea and then the dads are taking them off on a short Trick or Treating jaunt around the neighbourhood when it starts to get dark. DH is on Pumpkin carving duty. I'm heavily up the duff and have flu so wishing I could hide under the duvet sad

Prob just snarling at the local beggars children/youths who come round, hands out. My own dc are going to the local church (no we are not religious) who are doing a fun-and-games thing, trying to dissuade the pagans out of the charms of sugar and bats.
