Halloween chez nous isn't nearly as exciting as it is in Scotland (check out Bourbon & Pearls here to see how it should be done), but we try to make it a little festive for the children.
Back in England we never used to celebrate it. We have Bonfire night on November 5th, celebrating Guy Fawkes' failed attempt to blow up the House of Lords.
Anyway, in honour of the evening, the children made a creeper pumpkin (Creepers are from Minecraft, in case some of you don't have Minecraft-obssessed people in your family)
D dressed up as a creeper, too
While M went for a scary ragdoll thing:
I've decided to take stock of my purchasing each month, so I can see what I've bought, and perhaps change my habits in some small way.
This month has been excessive.
I did think I had been quite parsimonious, but in reality, I was deluding myself quite badly.

But that's not all - I realised that I've also ordered a leopard belt and phone cover from J Crew that hasn't arrived yet - it was bought in October, but won't arrive till November. Does that make it a November purchase? I think not.
I also bought a leopard cardigan (I know, I know. Blue Booby's prediction that I will soon channelling Eartha Kitt is looking more and more likely to come true). The cardigan is courtesy of the lovely Ina, from Ina in Wonderland. I will model it once it arrives.
So, my October spending was rather high.
I will therefore have to rest for a while now.

At any rate, the mid life crisis shoes are getting a lot of wear, as are the J Crew Andie chinos.
Hope you had/are having a good Halloween if it's celebrated in your area!
