It may be cold outside but there’s one thing sure to lure me from the warmth of my four-wall fortress and that’s fireworks…
They may slightly dangerous and a little on the loud side but I just love watching fireworks, always have and always will. There’s something really romantic and mildly magical about seeing sparkles in the sky.
We usually visit two fireworks displays each year: one just by my parent’s place, which is a small but special event (as the pyrotechnician behind the magic just so happens to be the very same man who made the fireworks which we watched at our wedding), and the other, much bigger event takes place just down the road from where we live.
I just love the atmosphere; the smell of the gunpowder and the sparklers, the taste of treacle toffee and gingerbread, the rich taste of mulled wine, the chilly evening air and the warmth from the bonfire as you stand watching and listening to the wonderful cracks, pops, whizzes and bangs sparkle before your eyes.
We really enjoyed bonfire night this year, the weather held out and we had a wonderful week filled with the novelties of November.
