Halloween- Pumpkins, Biscuits and Spiders!

Mad spice
Halloween this year was spent away from home. Younger daughter went to visit Elder daughter at university and Younger Son and I went to visit my lovely Mum.

 The last two years  have been a very difficult time for the family . A serious mental illness crept into our household unnoticed and the last eighteen months  have been spent dealing with the effects this has had on us all. I am so delighted that our family relationships are re building and slowly step by step we are moving forward and in the right direction. Things have improved in ways I hadn't expected and even in the last three months things have proved so that family time has been far more enjoyable and seeing these pumpkins made by the girls makes me smile from my heart outwards!
Scary spice
 The girls  decorated my daughters flat kitchen with web type stuff and hung millions of these scarily lifelike spiders all over.

 They then had fun making and baking and decorating halloween themed biscuits

I loved the fact that although they burnt one lot of biscuits ( and they were burnt until they were black) they didnt waste them. They used the black bats to decorate the flat ! ( I'm glad I don't have to clean the walls after them!) I'm so glad they had fun and it just goes to show that you are never too old to enjoy  halloween!

I'm really sorry to read that family life has been rather bumpy but also pleased to hear it's on the mend, I hope everything continues to get stronger and better for you all.

Fab halloween lanterns and biscuits :)
