Peeps round our way have gone crazy mad for Halloween this year. Above and below is a house on the other side of the common to our gaff; there are crowds gathering outside to take photos and generally revel in its spooky wonderfulness.
|Well if you had a house like this, you would wouldn't you?|
I also spied this house on Wandsworth Common - the "crime scene do not enter" tape is a particularly nice (potentially illegal?) touch...
We get into the spirit (fnar) every year, but I'm thinking Halloween 2012 we'll have to go a bit more mad for it. Our fireplace is pretty spooky but, being Little Miss Competitive, I'm willing to rise to the challenge set by the freakazoids shown above next year.
|There's a lot of pound shop action involved in our efforts...the glowing Caspar was a particularly shrewd buy|
Meanwhile, prep for tomorrow's party continues. My glamorous assistant has prepared a pumpkin...
And now I just have to decide what to wear. Of course if time and money were no object....
