Trick, Treat or just bad eggs

So finally our Halloween night took place and it was eventful, think the end result was wicked as all the children looked quality. I finished early again as baby had her injection, she won't be having another until she is four which is good news. After picking up the children we got our costumes on and headed out into the night. I had a cape but didn't look scary at all, instead I looked more like David Bowie haha! Was well funny! Took the children a while to get into the flow of knocking on peoples doors. They soon got the hang of it though and the baby nearly ended up heading into a few houses. Night went well but then the mood twisted once the kids got more tunnel visioned with getting sweets so we headed home. Then the mood took another twist as we bumped into the local yobs who vented their usual. We weren't having none of it but then one of the friends of the group stepped in and did the respectable thing and apologised. We thought this was a good thing until we got home and found that an egg had been thrown at one of the windows. Three guesses who hey?!?! Oh well let the cowards have their moment, with fireworks night approaching I'll tie them all to a rocket haha!!

Earlier mornings

I am well feeling the earlier starts, okay I am not getting up that much earlier but adding in the clock change as well and I feel out of the game. Journeys seem quicker from when I leave home but with it being in the rush hour I am having to slot into trains now instead of having space. It's like playing human Tetris. I'm getting there though!! Looking forward to tonight's fun with Halloween, have a half day as well so will be able to help my girl get things together!! Included some Banksy art in this post that I saw whilst in Tetris mode this morning reading over someones shoulder. I am sure if I were to take up street art I would soon be facing charges not earning millions!!

Open ended!

Finished work early today to heard over to my children's school, it's my daughters open evening so I want to be there to see how she is getting on. After a cleanup indoors me and my girl head to the school and end up getting caught in traffic on the way. I leave my girl and baby in the car with the outlook that they will head to the park. I arrive as my children's mum is sitting with the teacher so stumble over to the chair to listen to what is said. It's encouraging to hear how hard a worker she is and how eager to please. Was disappointed hearing their mum say that she is naughty at home. I find that hard to believe as she is an angel for me and never argues back.

Anyway as soon as it had started it was over and we were out of the school. I headed up to the park with the children and their mum headed off home or so I presume. My girl wasn't at the park anyway as she was in the car so we head back to her and then on to the shops. My daughter gets a headache which we all put down to her not wearing her glasses so we drop her home and carry on over to Bluewater where we look about for birthday presents. After a busy and late night for the children we head home ready for another busy and late night tomorrow with Halloween!!
