Remember, remember, the 5th of november,
Gunpowder treason and plot.

So, what are you all doing for Guy Fawkes night? Anyone letting any fireworks off, or going to a gathering?

What's on... 5th November? Wandwizard (I couldn't find a fireworky emoticon, so I figured this will do for a sparkler! Very Happy )

I'm off to a bonfire/firework gathering. It's my friends 18th, so we're going to make an afternoon of it beforehand, and probably a yearly thing before everyone goes off to uni.

There's usually a display in the town - you can see them from most parts of town so we just watch from the house. (The velux window in the loft is good for this..) Apart from that we'll just be Mr and Mrs Grumpy, moaning when we get woken up by someone letting off a banger* on the way back from the pub.

*That's not a euphemism

We're hoping to take LMC into town for the annual display that the Abbey helps to organise. It's usually fantastic, but we're not sure what LMC's reaction will be. Some bangs upset her a bit last night, but when I took her to the window and showed her the fireworks she calmed right down and slept through a large display later on that seemed very close.

The weather may change our plans though as rain is forecast for most of the day here and I don't fancy pushing her buggy through the mud.

Our 'trench experience' started last night, when we were woken by what sounded like a couple of mortars going off outside the house. Grrrr!!!

I'm very relieved that our dog is completely unfazed by the fireworks. And my goodness there have been some whoppers going off nearby. One made the windows shake.

Maybe I'm getting old and grumpy, but they just don't do it for me anymore. I preferred it when Guy Fawkes night was just that, and it didn't spread to any convenient weekend between the end of September and Christmas!

I know what you mean freebird.

Well it was supposed to rain all evening here, from about 4pm onwards, and we didn't get a drop. I ended up covered in wax as it was so windy though (we each had a wax fire stick thing, I can't think of a name for it). Am now shattered!
