Bonfire Bonanza

Big thank you to my friend Jo for hosting a lovely bonfire party last night for around sixty people. A night full of sticky toffee pudding, mulled wine, marshmallows and cheer.


    Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder Treason
    Should ever be forgot.
    Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
    To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
    Three-score barrels of powder below
    To prove old England's overthrow;
    By God's providence he was catch'd
    With a dark lantern and burning match.
    Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
    Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
    And what should we do with him? Burn him!  

A really good night, and nice to be surrounded by friends. More fun for us than Guy, I guess.
