FIREWORKS


5th of November in the UK is known as Bonfire Night - where for some reason we still celebrate Guy Fawkes trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. How long we will be able to continue with Bonfire Night in this era of Health and Safety we can only guess.

But for this week only you can let your imagination rip with some fireworks as this is our theme this week. I've done a Catherine Wheel - one of my favourite fireworks and it doesn't frighten the life out of my dog like the rockets do! Apparently though the firework was named after an intrument of torture, the breaking wheel, on which, legend has it, St Catherine was martyred. Hmm, doesn't sound so nice now does it!

Have Fun and have a safe 5th November.

It makes me think of my childhood where my parents would have huge bonfire parties and fireworks in the back garden inviting all the neighbours!! No more the back garden displays!
