Sparklers by boxplayer


Not sure if Caroline behind is being abducted by aliens.

Lazy day starting with a lie in. Dave went down to watch the rugby final - South Africa won. I stayed in bed, then made some tea and toast and a hot cross bun and had them in bed.

After showering finally tried to finish off my photo processing. PC so slow - deleted some stuff and worked out how to close down Real Player which is eating up a lot of memory. Was quicker after that and Picasa was back to working properly. Dave made tea and we had more hot cross buns later and he played with his cittern which he hasn't done for a while.

At 6.30 we popped round to the neighbours for their annual fireworks party. First mulled wine of the season. Caroline and Richard with little Anna from opposite were there too, very lively and pretty she is. Also Kate.

Had the sparklers outside, as it started to drizzle. Then Jem tried to do the fireworks proper but the matches wouldn't stay lit. Richard helpfully brought round their gas lighter and Jem managed to do most of them even though the rain worsened. Anna was terrified at first but got used to it - her first fireworks.

Had jacket potatoes and quorn chilli - very yummy - plus salad and nibbles and prosecco.
Richard and Caroline left to put Anna to bed and we stayed chatting and I did a couple of G'vine Floraison gins for everyone.
