But December should see me with a computer and Picasa back in place and blog central restored!
Oh and I am also away on a weeks holiday with Colin.. we plumped for Tenerife as the priority was for good weather.. and that we have.. home on Wednesday and as I write on Sunday evening I hope the G& T's are not marring my fluency.. haha.. they may even aid it!
So.. Autumn Nostalgia..what does it hold for you? Let me give you a few suggestions..
- The change in the hour.. love it or hate it ..and why?
- Do you have memories of walking ankle deep through sycamore leaves as you search for Christmas twigs?
- How did you celebrate Guy Fawkes Night?
- Or Hallowe'en, is that the Autumn highlight for you ?
For me the days between starting school again in September til November 5th were filled with plans for Guy Fawkes Night. We bought fireworks from the travelling grocery shop which came to our fishing cove twice a week. We stored them in tin boxes and when allowed by our Mums we compared who had what and how we might persuade our Mums to get us a bigger and better firework!
Us children all collected papers and wood for a huge bonfire at my cousins house and his Mum would host the bonfire night and we would all bring food.. my resounding memory is of Auntie Val, the host, carrying out sausages on sticks on a tray but being chased by a Jumping Jack someone let off.. by mistake? Not so sure that was the case!
Looking forward to catching up with you all later in the week.. I so owe you all some comments and at the very least my November views!
