So Halloween has come and gone.
I was only aware of it cause -
The local shops had Halloween costumes up front and in your face throughout October. Even Poundland’s shop announcements were spooky voiced. Scared the heck outta me the first time I heard it.
And the two munchkins at home had a costume party in school so we had to go shopping for them. 6 yr old K was Spiderman (rolls yes) Little M was a princess complete with crown and ball room slippers.
That was a week ago and I promptly forgot about Halloween.
Yesterday at MacDonalds. I remember little red riding hood walking past me, Shrek, even King Kong alas, no alarms rang in my head…
Around 7 pm the door bell rang. The kids shouted Mommy is back!! And remembering I had left my key in the lock I went with them to open the door.
There in the cold was a cute little shivery witch with her big black hat held out, her mom somewhere in the shadows.
"Trick or treat"?
My head did a million calculations in that second. “Treat? Oh dear. We are out of candy! Can I give cookies? money? Bad idea! I have only pennies and a 10 pound note”
I ran to the kitchen frenzied looked around, came back hands wringing and apologizing.
I felt soooo bad.
I don’t know who was more embarrassed. Lil shivering Witch, her Mom or me!
The munchkins telling me ‘Aunty that’s not nice, why didn’t you give her candy”? (loudly mind ya) as I closed the door didn’t help.
Suffice to say, I chased 'em to the kitchen and put off the living room lights.
We are not home!
How was your Halloween day?
Howdy to the new followeres. and to the old ones...my loyalty remains unshaken.
