My children are now adults, 25 and 24 years old, so they obviously don't go 'trick or treating' but thinking back twelve or fifteen years, I don't think they ever did.
Maybe it wasn't so popular then, or maybe it was because we lived in a rather spread out village with no street lighting… whatever, they never did it, and we never had anyone knocking on our door either.
So on Wednesday evening I was up to my wrists making pastry for a quiche for dinner before heading off to see 'Skyfall' at the cinema, which was brilliant by the way, when there was a knock at the door.
Chris answered it and it was 'trick or treaters'! We had no sweets in the house bought specifically, so he had to improvise. He gave them a handful of my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, brought over from America for me by Laura Geller, and sent them on their way.
A few minutes later another knock, more of my own personal 'treats' dispatched, and then another knock and yet more of my sweets gone! There are half a dozen remaining for my personal consumption… oh well, better for the waistline I guess!
Talking of treats we have a great line up for you on Sunday with our 'Gift of Beauty Day'.
Hope you will be able to join me at 1pm and 3pm.
Have a great weekend.
