... the fifth of November...
Today is my second favourite (my first being Hallowe'en; this one spent snoozing in front of Collectors – boo hoo for me!) day of the year: Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Bonfire night (at least where I grew up), I have loved this night of fireworks, giant bonfires and general Bon Homie for as long as I can remember. It is of course very different here in Melbs, but I got to wave some sparklers around to celebrate. After a week of a lot of tracksuit-and-couch time (though there was a party – made possible with the pharmacy's help – with efforts including drawn-on stocking seams; but my energy didn't extend to photo-taking), it was fun.
And, of course, this political date ties in rather nicely with today's excellent election news – definitely a cause for celebration!
Hopefully the sparklers will lead to a bit more spark in me, and I will be able to get back to posting again. I have missed it so much! I also need to do a lot of link-adding, as my blog list is waaaay out of date. I will do this in stages, as I won't be able to remember them all in one go – please don't be shy to remind me if you want to be added!
