I got to see Mandarin Ducks in the lake, I'm told that they are quite common in Britain but I've never seen them before:
I got to do a ridiculous amount of shopping in the Korean food shop and in Lush:
I got to eat vast quantities of cheese that they brought back from recent travels to France:
Mr.-is got a blazing fire going for us (with a blow torch...):
And most excitingly I carved my first ever halloween pumpkin!
The first thing to do was to carve off the top, and keep it so that it makes a lid.
Then, we emptied the gunk from inside with a spoon (I had the aid of a melon baller, which was quite handy) and made air holes in the lid with an apple corer:
Then we started carving. Mine was pretty traditional, being my first one, but the others were a bit more original:
Mrs. Im made a puffer fish:
|Behold, the pumpkin puffer fish|
While Mr.-is got a bit of text speak in there:
Here are the three of them playing happily:
And more happily as the night wears on:
|Drunky pumpkin always has a good time|
It was so much fun! I'm looking fwd to next halloween already!
