Halloween and Holidays

I’m off to a friends tonight for a combined Halloween and Bonfire party. So I nipped into tesco to get some chestnuts for roasting and some flowers as a thanks for the invite kind of thing then had to walk past Oliver Bonas and noticed some really cute decorations. Now I’ve never gone in for Halloween as a big event – I think it’s all a bit too American. This year though I am just inthe need of a good excuse to party I reckon. It may as well be Halloween.

I also discovered today that I have been amiss with taking holidays this year. I have 19 days left of the 25 I get. So essentially given that I can carry 5 over to next year for a sneaky before Easter break that leaves me with 14 to use before the end of the year. Even taking into account to get two full weeks off over Christmas I only need take a further 6 days that means I still have 8 to take – so a fortnight in the sun I think with sea, sand and a book!

No wonder I have been stressing of late – I need a holiday!
