Novemeber 3rd:  Fireworks really bad last night, I know Haydonleigh School were having and event and I could hear that, but as background noise to what I think must have been in the garden of an Abbey Meads resident, it went on so long and so near, that earmuffs would not have helped as it was rattling the windows.  It went on for so long that I did get up and go out to see where it was.  The rockets were breaking on a level with my eye -i.e. I didn't have to look up.

I suppose I can stop worrying about wildlife now, because anything that would have died of fright already has by now.
Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Thought I'd put up a few pics from a firework display I went to on Saturday. They're not brilliant (you can see that I wasn't holding the camera too steadily) but a few people seem to like them.







These were taken at the polo ground off Malborough Road.

Fireworks don't need to be loud, in my humble opinion. But they should be visually beautiful for me to enjoy them, and these ones were  :)

It's been unusually and mercifully quiet sinc ethe weekend, but wonder what this weekend will bring, I see the local shop is selling fireworks 60% off.

My missus bought a box of indoor fireworks.

Dear God.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

We don't have to buy anything in to have a good show of them in our house, Mart.


I spoke too soon - more fireworks last evening.
