S and I love bonfire night – every year we would go to the firework display with friends and then back to someone’s house for drinks and food. Then we had kids! And ours seem particularly unimpressed by noisy fireworks.
So over the past few years we have been trying to find a happy medium. Tonight we had sausages and marshmallows on the fire outside. We lit sparklers and tried writing our names (and Gs spellings!). And we had a range of fireworks which looked great but were fairly quiet. Everyone happy – even baby T loved the lights and colours.
One day we will return to the big loud firework displays – but for now I’m happy with the 5 of us doing it our way.
Hope you had a great bonfire night too.
