Last night was halloween so I dressed up as a witch. With green and black stripy tights and a black pointed hat I was up for the craic! My kids went as vampires and armed themselves with huge plastic bags! Jay pushed my chair wearing a muticoloured wig made from shiney plastic paper. We met up with our neighbours along with a band of friends whose kids were dressed as witches, ghosts and every imagined thing. As the goodie bags got fuller, the kids wanted to go further so we ended up in another estate near our own. All the while my feet were turning into ice blocks but nothing could stop me, I was enjoying myself too much! As we looked up at the brilliant moon we saw little orange lanterns gliding around the sky. And the piece de resistance was when the fireworks went off. Such a beautifully coloured sky! It made the night for me and seeing the kids enjoying too was extra great. My smallest, getting cold and over tired at the excitement of it all asked if she could sit on my lap. So I was thrilled to get the chance to snuggle on a freezing cold night. When we got back I was delighted to be able to tell them my wish had come true. I had wished for fireworks!
