What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 05/11/2013 at 19:25

Cold and now drizzling, not good for people who are having a bonfire, or fireworks.

I used to sit in the window and wish it to get dark so we could get our wellies on and go out. Must add, not that's she on the forum, but M did make parkin. In later years when we had our own bonfire and friends came we had the previously mentioned food, plus leg of pork ripped into bits and we behaved like cannibals.

Right off to wave a sparkler, the rain seems to have stopped. Enjoy memories all who read this. Might not be back later as cider to be drunk

Squishing caterpillars

Fidget, due to shortage of space I grow veg in with flowers so I can't easily net. Do net some that stand alone, but this year I've also had cabbage white caterpillars on some flowers and herbs

I buy stuff, chocs and especially any sort of salted nuts, they have to stay at Mum's and she won't give them back before Christmas even if I beg.

It it's cabbage white offspring I'm happy to squish, I don't grow food to feed caterpillars. Need it for us.

Bonfire night memories or traditions.

We always had a big bonfire to get rid of garden rubbish, we used to make a Guy F.

Dad used to buy a box of Standard fireworks 2 shillings and sixpence, that were stored high up in a cupboard and on the run up to the big night he'd get it down and we used to decide which was the first and which was the last to be set off. Always had sparklers to write our names with.

We had sausages and roast spuds and chestnuts standing around the bonfire.

One year when I was "part grown up" I had a very small glass of cider, loved it.

No bonfire but each year we have sausages & spuds, I drink a glass or two of cider and write messages to my Dad with a giant sparkler  ( wearing a pair of his old leather gloves) Bet I look a right teacake!

What do you do if anything?

Just to confirm, as if I hadn't noticed that it's getting cold, we've just seen a skein ( looked that one up ) of geese on their way south east. Loads of them, impressed.
