There’s something rather delicious about having done Hallow’een (putting up scary decorations, carving pumpkins, getting in a load of sweets for the Trick or Treaters, getting the kids in costumes and taking them Trick or Treating) and then getting to the day after. Bliss! There’s nothing left to do, it’s now All Saints’ Day (I’m told it is a public holiday in most of Europe) and we just have to potter about, not really achieving anything in particular.
It’s quite atmospheric this morning, the mist has come off the sea and the foghorn is going. I never knew the difference between fog and mist – my husband once said that it depended on whether you were inland or by the sea. However, my good friend Wikipedia says that if you can’t see at least a kilometre ahead, it is fog. Otherwise it is mist.
One result of this fog / mist is that I can see all the spiders’ webs on the railings. I must give them a clean at some point.
The pumpkins look rather soggy this morning. In a few days, I will put them on my compost heap. When the children have stopped being fond of them – yesterday my son sang songs to his pumpkin so it may take a while.
