Remember, Remember


The 5th of November, or indeed the closest Saturday to it!


Bonfire night!  A massive bonfire followed by almost 20 minutes of bangs and explosions, it was excellent.





This event is held in the next village to us, hosted by the sports club and held on their football fields.  No entrance charge, just donations.

It was quite windy, but the rain held off.  The weather here has been very strange.  On Monday we had a gale, we were fine, but many fences came down and some trees, lots of people have been without power. And if you had hoped to travel by train on Monday you were out of luck, as they cancelled all trains between Norwich and London.  
The rest of the week has been really warm, yesterday we spent some time at the allotment and it was warm and sunny, 14 C!!  in November?  This can't be right.  Last night was the warmest bonfire night I ever remember, it is usually freezing.





In the last week the clocks have gone back (so dark so early), we have had Halloween and Bonfire Night and now....................

we can start to think about Christmas!!

I have never celebrated Bon Fire night, and I want to!
I can't wait to celebrate it with my children and a great big bon fire as well!
I got your message about sending Joshua a Christmas card and I was wondering if you could please send me your email address so that I can make sure I have the right one to email you, because you're coming up as a no-reply blogger...
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Tammy
