Bonfire night this year was a little different but in a good way. Last year we went the whole hog and spent vast amounts of cash and lots of hours stuck in a pitch black field with a wee one that was not impressed nor happy at being out after bedtime with no toys to play with! the tween was equally peeved at the amount of mud and at how uncool it was to remain near her parents as there really was nothing much to do!
This year obviously feeling anxious about the whole event when we were invited to meet with some friends and travel a little further afield to an event in their village we thought this would be a fantastic idea, great friends, some laughs and a firework or two .. perfect!
When we arrived we loved the fact that there seemed loads more to do and see than at the one the year before we paid a fortune to get into.
There was a small but reasonably priced fairground, massive fire and lots of space to get near the display and fire without burning off your eyebrows (those of you that know me will know I don’t have enough eyebrows to waste!)
Joshua absolutely loved the firework display this year and he never took his eyes off them from start to finish.
The tween was also very excitable at this years event too as there were some almighty rides all to induce puke in my book, spinning round in circles while the G force kicks in and tips sideways is never going to be on my list of things to do.. she loved it though!
