Leila is massively excited for Hallowe’en this year… so much so that I’ve been debating breaking my own anti-halloween stance and dressing her up as a pumpkin whilst parading her up and down the street. However, Mr. L is really grumpy about this and he NEVER puts his foot down on anything, so I’m thinking I might let him win with this battle.
Where he ain’t gonna win is on the face-painting front. I’ve already told Leila we’re gonna have a day of face-painting fun and she’s buzzing at the prospect. Every morning she finds me to tell me what she wants to be transformed into, yesterday it was a dinosaur and this morning, she’s graduated to a strawberry. If you have any recommendations for good face-painting kits, I’m all ears. No, she’s not using my makeup.
Anyway, for the bigger kids among us, here’s some lovely things to get you in the mood for a bit of ghost-hunting!

I’m not really anti-Halloween, I’m just a bit anti trick-or-treating but in my defence, that’s mostly because our average trick or treater can barely raise an adolescent grunt before holding their hand out to mug me for my Haribo.
Do you partake in any Halloween-y frolics?
