Halloween Preparations!

If you know me you'll know I love any reason to celebrate and have some fun with the kids. Halloween has become such a kids thing too! When I was a kid living near Pendle Hill it was THE THING to do to go up Pendle Hill on Halloween! And now we live in Lancaster where the famous Pendle Witches met their fate.... It's hard not to want to have fun with it! (Pendle Witches)

BUT... The kids are still a bit young for tramping up the Hill in the dark and the damp, and a bit too young to appreciate the history of Lancaster Castle, that'll be stuff I'll do with them when they are a bit older. This year we're going to visit the "Brick or Treat" experience at Lego Discovery in Manchester. I'll make a post on that later.

What we have been doing is MAKING AND BAKING! We've made:


  • Chocolate Apples
  • Chocolate & Jelly Fangs
  • Jelly Brains, Skulls and Cross Bones
  • Gingerbread Halloween Shapes
  • Red Velvet Graveyard Cake
  • Card Halloween Characters
  • Pumpkin Carving


We even made a proper little cooking show on YouTube for my Cooking With The Kids thingie (ok, final edits in progress, I want them in their costumes eating some of the treats they made before I publish it)

Here's a sneak peak!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
