While Halloween festivity seems to be on the rise here, it's certainly all the rage in my native US of States. I remember some of my early costumes fondly, particularly a bunny suit that matched my dear Floppy-eared Rabbit. Now that LLC is on the scene I wanted to get in the spooky spirit: Chris carved a pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern, we hung strands of black bats in our window and LLC and I dressed as matching witches to great our trick-or-treaters....of which there was one. One solitary trick-or-treater. All my visions of our cackling selves greeting candy-mad children at the door were shattered but we still had a pretty good time making spooky faces at Chris. Did I say we? I'm not sure what LLC would have to say about that but she seemed to enjoy my antics..... really, she did.
As if the little lady had not had enough excitement for one week, on Tuesday we joined Huggies and the other Huggies Mums for afternoon tea at The Dorchester in London. While we chatted about our kids, the Huggies Bundle of Laughs comedy channel and life in general over tasty sandwiches and cakes, LLC scoffed a cucumber sandwich and then enjoyed many cuddles from the Huggies girls and Young Mummy, who didn't even get cross when she knocked her glasses or phone onto the floor. I'd never been to tea at Dorchester before and fear I may be instilling expensive tastes in LLC from a tender age!
