I’ve blogged several times about why Bonfire night is special to us so I won’t do that again. But it is and it was again this year.
Ady and I helped construct the bonfire this morning in the pouring rain. It was a soggy exercise but we laughed lots and all went for tea and biscuits together afterwards.
The weather was pretty uncertain all day long but we were poised expecting the best and sure enough the skies cleared and it was all good. There was a very brief downpour right in the middle of the evening but clear starry skies before and after. It’s pouring down again now so it was a very clear meant to be window of opportunity.
Fireworks, roaring bonfire, venison steaks and sausages from Rum, mulled wine, hot chocolate, marshmallows, soup, sparklers, kids running round playing scary games in the dark with torches, men being all macho lobbing wood at the fire. It was perfect.
