How was your weekend? Did anyone see any fireworks?
Thank you everyone for your views, comments and likes on my second Author Profile with Zen. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, please go and take a look.
So today is the 5th November, Guy Fawkes day.
“Remember; remember the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot.”
I love firework night and firework displays. It’s a night to wrap up and stand with the one you love or your friends and family and stare up at the sky watching the spectacular colours.
I still cover my ears for the loud bangs and still “ooh” and “ahh” at the colours and displays. I am always tempted to buy a childish flashing light toy and wave it around making shapes.
I love sparklers even though they make me nervous. I always try and spell out my name with them.
I then enjoy going to see the bonfire being lit and watch the dancing flames so intensely my eyes water.
It is a night I always feel close to my family and partner. For the past few years though I’ve never been with my partner on the day our firework display is on.
This year I got to spend it at his. I got to snuggle up close for warmth and feel his loving arms around me as I gazed at all the pretty lights in the sky. We didn’t go to an actual display but went for a walk Sunday night up to the garage for some nibbles and we saw quite a few going off so stopped and watched. 🙂
Firework night is one of my favourite times of the year. It’s one of the only times I am prepared to stand out in the cold getting neck ache from staring upwards so long.
I enjoy watching the young kids running around with their flashy toys and “oohing” and “ahhing” along with me.
