A secret plan to overthrow the king + a mercenary named Guy Fawkes returning from war abroad + thirty six
barrels of gunpowder = we commemorate the capture of Guy
Fawkes with bonfires and fireworks, and by burning an effigy of Guy.
Best reason for an awesome night. So awesome, I was too busy enjoying the fireworks, charred treats & generally enoying to get any good pics – sorry!
This year it almost felt like a sensory overload – laughter, gorgeous food, sharp drink, the scream and band of the bright fireworks, contrasted with the sneaking bone chilling cold.

I feel I’ve cheated you of a proper blog post, sorry. How about a virtual mini-cupcake instead?
