My weekend

This weekend was a LOUD one!

Throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday night the fireworks just didn't stop.

We had a little gathering on Saturday night as it rained on Friday (Bonfire Night).

It was a very cold night so hats, gloves and scarves were an essential!

I lit some fireworks for the first time...EEK! I know for some it isn't daunting but for me it's a bit of a big deal.

It's always been the 'manly' job in my eyes so I had never done it before. I knew a boy who had an accident with a firework. It damaged his face (but missed his eye luckily!!)..so since then I had pledged NEVER to light one...but I guess I'm a bit more gutsy now.


We ate fluffy but crisp jacket potatoes...hot dogs....hot chocolate....lamb burgers....S'mores.

SO GOOD! (I'm a foodie kinda girl btw).

We also let off a Chinese Lantern...

They are so beautiful once they are up in the sky. Luckily it was a clear night so we stood there for quite a while until it went out.

Bye bye lantern....
