Happy Halloween/Birthday M




Today is M's 6 birthday, L myself and my sisters in law will be taking 10 miniature hooligans 10 pin bowling. That last sentence is somewhat disingenuous as my part in the proceedings is merely to ferry a few of the little darlings to the bowling alley. I will then have a free pass for a couple of hours as my mother has volunteered to watch Leo. As I will be about 10 minutes from Glasgow, I think a visit to Fopp and Oxfam music is the order of the day and back home to prepare the sandwiches, jelly and juice for the adults.

Yes, my eldest was born on Halloween, scaring the crap out of both his mother and I (long story) and has continued to do so ever since.

Here is the only northern soul themed Halloween song that I can think of and what a belter it is.

Azie Mortimer - Haunted

And since it is Max's birthday here is one of his favourite songs (scarily I'm not kidding)

The Fall - F-'oldin' Money

Just back, slim pickings in Oxfam and nothing in Fopp.

Seeing as I truly hate this holiday, am really honestly frightened on this evening and stay indoors with lights out and doors locked, you still managed to give me a good laugh about your child "scaring the crap" outta you. Nothing can be more frightening than parenthood or the prospects thereof :) bless ya xoxo

and many thanks, Mondo darlin, for the music!
