Halloween Yumminess

We had some fun with food today. I made witch's hair for lunch:

(that witch gets into every kind of mess!)

Then the Little People and I made witches' fingers and toes:

We used this recipe, and they taste a lot better than they look!

But the Little Peoples' favourite food was blood clots (or jelly):

We followed Nigella's 'recipe' and made strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant jellies, let them set and then tipped them all into one bowl and mushed them with our hands.

After all that sugar, the Little People just had to go Trick or Treating!

Happy Halloween!

Hot and cold

I've just spent a week away from the Little People, it's the longest I've ever been away from them and I really missed them. I had to go to Phoenix (Arizona) for work. The flights were painful (via Toronto on the way and Newark on the way back), but the people I worked with were lovely and we had a great time. I was given the work mascott before I went (it's a long story), so I recorded the trip with Humperdink's help...

It was  33 degrees when I got there and a 'cold' 22 degrees when I left. It was a bit of a shock when I caught the bus from the airport last night in 11 degree cold.

Big Man looked after the Little People perfectly (annoyingly!) and he let me sleep in this morning until 10:10!!! Then we all trooped off to Warwick Castle for the day to watch falconners, princesses, knights and witches, but the most impressive thing was seeing the trebuchet being fired.Obviously, it was freezing cold and wet. I forgot the camera so there's nothing to see - I'm blaming jet lag!
