She had bats in her hair ...

As dusk fell on Hallowe'en,
Her heart began to flutter ...
There were bats in the belfry ... and caught in her hair.
Blood red lips and rotten teeth.
They went to a party with witchy friends ...
Vampires, ghouls, Morticia, Gomez and walking dead ...
She took food to share ... 'monster mouths' ...
and 'mutant mummies' (made by little man!) ...
to add to a table already laden with gruesome goodies ...
Fingers, eyeballs and grubs ...
A cauldron cake, seething and bubbling.
A bowl of sick ... it tasted real good!!  
Just look at the flies on top!
It was spookily good fun!

So so so cool Jane, you look great as does everybody! I'm so jealous, annoys me how lazy my friends were when it came to dressing up this year, maybe I need new friends but that's easier said than done I suppose.

When did Hallowe'en become so popular? - I gather it is up there with Christmas for the kids now. A great excuse for a winter party and a feast! Amazing food.
