... 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 I also need to do a lot of link-adding, as my blog list is waaaay out of date.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!

Everything I know about Guy Fawkes Day, I learned from "V for Vendetta," I'm ashamed to report! Hope you are on the mend, lady, and I'd LOVE to hop on your blogroll ... you've been in mine for ages.

I feel your pain about colds, I'm still recovering from mine and have been operating on a severely restricted social calendar. Did you get to see the Gunpowder Plot doco that Richard Hammond presented on Foxtel? They blew up a life sized replica of the House of Lords with a metric ton of gunpowder. It was awesome.

Saorise said...

That sounds like so much fun! Your photos are beautiful.
Yay for election results!

Feel better my darling,
xoxo, Saorise
