It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
Don’t worry, I’ll save my rendition of Michael Jackson classics for later, but I thought that the opening verse of Thriller would get us in the mood for tomorrow because it’s Halloween! Now, let’s be honest, I am usually not a massive fan of Halloween. I hate fancy dress, it just makes me feel like an idiot, and the whole trick or treating thing, well that is just as awkward for me, but with Amy getting older I thought it might be nice to ehm get a little more into it.
I’m not going to push the boat out and spend five hours on my outfit for a Halloween party, but I got Amy a little costume and we’ll be having a little Halloween party with her cousins tomorrow. They’ll all get to dress up and have fun together and I’m escaping teenagers trying to raid my well hidden sweet stash. I might scare them with some of the scary treats from Marks & Spencer’s Halloween range though. We were kindly sent a big box full of goodies (see above) and they’ll really add a great touch to our little ghostly get together. With prices between £1 and £2, they are super affordable too, so make sure to top up on them in the morning or ready for your party at the weekend. I can’t wait to try them all out – shh don’t tell anyone that I’ve had some sneaky witches hair!
Disclosure: Marks & Spencer kindly send us some treats to try, but they didn’t ask us to write about them.
