So the glut of sweeties is done, the jars are filled and I won't need to buy another sugary snack until Christmas. All well and good.
There are a lot of sour pusses around here though, lots of people who ignore the advice to turn your hall light off if you don't want disturbed. ("Hey, it's my house, I do what I want" - then don't grump when you get a score of kids knocking!) Never the less I am always impressed at the begging standard of my two.

This year I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do a cat, shadow in front of the carved out moon. Instead I did this.
Which is meant to be one of these.
Yes I know it looks like mine has wonky eyebrows, I meant it - honest! I'm sure in the game, when you lose, the piggies wiggle their eyebrows and laugh. They do don't they?
Anyway, now that is over, roll on bonfire night.
