…the 5th of November!

This is one of my most favourite parts of the year as the leaves turn brown, orange, yellow with the sun sparkling on them. Cold dry air and crunchy leaves under foot. Smells of burning, scurrying little creatures building hideouts, lovely clear days wrapped up snuggly warm. 

Then comes Halloween with beautiful bright bold orange, green and purple in dominance – children get excited at the thought of dressing up – will it be skeletons or witches? Will it be gruesome or a sweet little witches cat? Broomsticks abound! Trick or treating, carved pumpkins and candles everywhere. Buckets full of sweets the children come home with their delights …. a few days rest and then the absolutely magical and musical fire filled skies begin.

Beautiful, bright and bold colours brighten up the sky with gold, silver, electric blue, pink and green showers lightening up the darkened evening. 

And then darkness and happy, tired families having had a beautiful evening …. I so love this time of year – Can you tell?

We’ve never had an event on Bonfire Night in the evening and I am just sooooo excited to be at The PalmHouse in Sefton Park on Bonfire Night – Treacle Toffee, Salted Caramel, Cinder Toffee, Hot Chocolate – so many delightful things to make…. I really, really can’t wait!!!

We were really excited to be part of the farmers market at the Baltic Market yesterday. We registered our interest as soon as we heard that a market was going to be running there – just by the old Cains Brewery. For years we have thought that Liverpool was crying out for a local market […]
