Every year we go and see the festival of light… but… the last few years they have been a bit well.. to quote the large child ‘the same as last time and a bit broken’.
I was lucky enough to win a family ticket to this year’s festival, which has moved back into a park in the city centre.
The kids had a great time, we met reindeer and they held an owl… we got reindeer food for Christmas Eve and drew calendars.. we ended up with a hot chocolate to warm us up before we came home.
So.. the vote was it’s definitely an improvement, well done Sunderland Council!
I really like Halloween!
And I got to make stuff for a little display this year (sadly I can’t take photos).
It started with little pumpkins..
Then a few spiders crept in..

Yay! I’m going to try and photograph some of my Halloween makes as I pack them up for transport today, wish me luck!
Someone said ‘blessed Samhain’ to me yesterday, and I just smiled and looked blank cos I didn’t know what it meant. Wiki says this, so you learn something new everyday, I guess!
