Despite the rain, the fireworks have been really made a stunning sight as they sparkle, flash and spread out across the sky. I was very careful to make sure that Yoko was safely sleeping in the lounge before we left home as she gets very frightened by the noise. We went to a friend’s bonfire party on Friday and had a great time. It was really fun chatting to all our friends and watching the fireworks, then eating some hot jacket potatoes. We gave up trying to cook them in the bonfire and used a microwave oven eventually – the rain made it very difficult to cook outside!
