Halloween tag

Happy Halloween! Tonight I’m donning some Ghostbusters pyjama bottoms, watching some Halloween themed films with my family (and likely some horror films too). I’m hoping we’ll see some trick or treaters as well. If you didn’t know by now Halloween is my favourite holiday, seconded by Christmas. When we were little my sister and I went trick or treating around our village with the other children there and a few chaperones. I think that’s where my love of Halloween and fancy dress began; my parents got very into it, carving pumpkins, decorating the house and playing some tricks on us. Read More…

Halloween decorations for every budget

Halloween is on its way! 🎃💛 Which, if you didn’t know already, is my favourite holiday. I love when the shops start putting their Halloween ranges out! Even more so if they do it before putting out their Christmas ranges. 😉 Haha. We always decorate the house for Halloween, ever since my sister and I were children. We had both indoor and outdoor decorations, a carved pumpkin (of course) and I’ve kept up the tradition since moving out 5 years ago. Here are a few of the Halloween items I’ve found that I’m loving this year. I’ve tried to include Read More…

Autumn to do list

“Of autumn’s wine, now drink your fill; the frost’s on the pumpkin, and snow’s on the hill.” –The Old Farmer’s Almanac, 1993 It’s the first day of Autumn! Finally! I love this time of year, the leaves changing colour, the fashion – knitwear and scarves, warm drinks and making soup, Halloween and Bonfire Night, it’s definitely my favourite season. I’m currently curled up on the sofa with a fruit tea and watching Teen Wolf on Netflix (I’m on season 2). I’ve spoken about my love of Autumn before but this year I wanted to share what I want to do Read More…

‘Tis the season.

Where has the time gone? Halloween and Bonfire Night have both been and gone and Christmas is right around the corner! Picking up where I left off last time, we didn’t end up dressing up as characters from The Rocky Horror Picture Show for Halloween in the end. Time got away from us and the costume one of us was planning on ending up being too small. 🙁 So we looked at other options – I was a mummy, dad went as Uncle Fester from the Addams Family (complete with light bulb) and, for those of you familiar with The Read More…

Comic con, a book signing and Fright Night – Hello October!

A lot has happened since I last wrote, I went to my first Lego show at the Steam Museum in Swindon and saw a Lego robot wars fight. All the Lego models on display were custom designs, no kits in sight. I was amazed by the size of the show and the models themselves.    Another first for me was crewing at Gloucester Comic con, my first time crewing at any convention. It was a great experience. Tiring, yes but I have a lot of fond memories and got to see what things were like from the otherside… I would Read More…

Hello Autumn

Autumn has always been my favourite season; leaves changing colour, cooler weather but not bitterly cold (although I’m sure that’ll be here soon I’m sure), Autumn activities such as Halloween and Bonfire Night etc. These are a few of my favourite things about Autumn and things I’m up to in the next few weeks. Sunsets During early Autumn, before the clocks go forward and the days get shorter, we see beautiful sunsets tiding over from Summer. Leaves changing colour Let’s face it nature is prettiest in Autmn. Colours of rich red, vibrant gold and bold orange decorate the trees (and Read More…
