We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, I think it stinks, but after a Canadian friend of mine sent me a little "care package" and gave me a taste of how much fun it is, I couldn't help going out to the few stores we have here with Halloween supplies and spending up big. I felt I needed the cheering up this October anyway, (thats my excuse ;) So, our living room had a big spook job (as well as this amateur aussie can do anyway hehe). I ended up scaring myself with the fake spiders more than once which was quite funny, the fake web is so sticky, how was I to know it was attached to my foot with a plastic spider and a real one wasn't actually chasing me ;)
Anyway, going all out in the baking department too, I tried a famous USA Pumpkin Pie recipe, I wasn't sure about it at first taste, but it grew on me and I ended up eating nearly the whole thing on my own lol. Spooky cookies and cupcakes were another treat. yum!
My little bear Esme found a loving home in England, but poor Jasper is still waiting for the right person to take him home. I may place him on Ebay shortly.
So, until next time, I hope you had a fun Halloween, I envy all you trick or treaters out there ;)
