Bonfire Night

November 5th - not my favourite night of the year.  You see, I hate fireworks!

Even as a small child I was frightened of fireworks.  I'd sit in the house with my Mum while Dad and my sister enjoyed watching and setting off fireworks.  I don't mind the bonfire part of Bonfire Night and obviously the food is fab - jacket potatoes, toffee apples, parkin, what's not to love?  But the fireworks - no thanks!

I 'manned-up' later when my son was born and took him to firework parties but I still cringed at the loud bangs.  It became a bit of a family joke - 'Oh look, there's Johanne with her fingers in her ears jumping with fright at the fireworks!'

So tonight I'll be hoping it all goes off quickly and wishing I could hide under the table with my cat, Bonnie!
