Granny's Funeral 11.20 am
= nice funeral
Freda, Edna & Bella went
Had a meal in the Brookhouse near Penny Lane
Meal = lovely
Had a really good laugh (It sounds macabre to have a good laugh at a funeral, but Granny would have appreciated it)
Went back to Auntie Freda's
Phoned Sam he was happy as usual ???
Well folks... Happy Halloween
An evening ahead of me of knocks on the door whilst the dog goes ballistic ... deep joy ...I can't wait.
Don't get me wrong as my teen was growing up we did bobbin' apples, carved out the pumpkin, lit it and put it in the window, made pumpkin soup, dressed up and played scary games but I have never allowed her to go 'Trick or Treating' as I think it is like begging ....
Apparently that is where it has it's roots. The tradition is from All Soul’s Day parades in early England. The poor citizens would line up on the sides of the street as the richer members of the community paraded by and threw them pastries called soul cakes. The starving citizens would accept these cakes in exchange for praying for the richer class’s dead family members.
It is also T- shirt Friday over at Nurse Myras. Not much story behind this T-shirt except I got it in the sale for a fiver not long ago. My teen insisted I buy it 'Go on Mum live a little'
I do like it and it is slightly Halloweenish with the bats and vampire robots
(& the bruise on my neck is fading nicely where the vampires got me last week)
