We have just had a party.

I know it is a day late and all but we have just had a Halloween party with Princess Curly-Wurly, Babyman and six friends ranging in age from one up to nine.

Looking at the photos just now I realise that I didn't take any of the fabulous biscuits I iced with black icing (how cool is black food colouring?) but they were cats and bats and looked fantabulous.

We had eyeballs (jam and cream on tiny baby scones), carrot fingers and brain cakes (purple coloured cakes crammed with blackberries). Then we played lots of cool games before everyone headed off home.

Stayed up too late last night reading (The Friday Night Knitting Club - highly recommend it) and had too much fun this afternoon. Am now officially tired.


  1. Lovely pumpkins!! Thanks for the links to Philip's blog. He is such a brave man and his blog is so touching. Take care of yourself, it must be so hard to lose such a special friend,

  3. I would have liked to see the black-iced biccies - but the pumpkins are very cool too :o)

    Glad you had a fun (if tiring) party!
