A handful of sparkling fun... by 

We don’t celebrate Guy Fawkes in Oz. It is usually hotting up as we head towards Summer. But this year, after a few days of hot weather, we have reverted back to cold and wet… so as November 5th arrived I was reminded of Guy Fawkes back home in the UK… Village bonfires; baked spuds; writing your name in the air with sparklers; watching as the first sparks of flame started licking around the bottom of the bonfire and quickly making its way up the huge stack towards the Guy sitting forlornly at the top… The excitement as the fire roared into life and then the fireworks would be lit one by one and adorn the sky with the brightest of colours and bangs that would bring oohs and ahhs from the crowd… and having to rotate from front to back as wellies and faces would become too hot facing the fire, whilst your back froze!! SO, with all that in my head I did the next best thing – barbie on the patio with my son, eating sausage sizzle, lighting sparklers, running around the dark, damp garden like mad things and having a HEAP load of fun!! If you got to the end of this rambling, thanks for sharing one of my wonderful childhood memories of growing up back home…xx

Oh and I couldn’t decide which of these pics I liked best, so here’s two for the price of one!!

A moment is just that… it has no past and no future…

    Funny that, we were discussing Guy Fawkes this weekend too. I certainly miss the hold winter night with the bonfire and fireworks. These are lovely shots, my favourite is the first, and such a lovely way you spent it too.

    Two for the price of one hey…value!!
    We watched the fireworks here from the deck, Alison. I am a lot like my puppy Harvey and want to hide from them…the noise they make scares me, yet the colours are just beautiful to watch, an explosion and out pour of colour.
    We celebrated Guy Fawkes night as children and sparklers are still a nostalgic remind to me.
    The risks we took as children letting’ them off and eating the obligatory hot spud on a stick are oh so fond a memory.
    Really glad you have shared your son’s and your fun evening…funny, I was keen on a BBQ yesterday too!
    Love to you, Sandra x
