A green halloween

I think by now, everybody realises we can’t keep doing things the same old way, and still have a healthy planet (thank you Greta) and healthy bodies. Halloween needs to be more green than orange… Halloween doesn’t have to mean buying bags of lollies individually wrapped in plastic, costumes made of cheap vinyl, toxic PVC masks, plastic pumpkins that break on the way home, decorations that end up on the garbage heap and traffic jams from driving to the next...

Halloween 2019

And now for something completely different. I swear we were in front of the zeitgeist, not in response to it, but we’re escaping from the city. At Christmas we went on holiday to Byron Bay, and made an offer on a block of land in the hinterland, with views to the mountains. A little bit impulsive, but actually quite logical, given family nearby. Any the first thing I did when I got home (apart from putting my house on the market) was to offer all of my halloween...

Halloween 2016

I’m a nerd. It’s the month before Halloween, and I’m watching Google Analytics show an increase in hits to my site. And spending time rebuilding it with a new theme, because my kids have shamed me into it. “Such an old-fashioned site, mum”. But it’s done for now, and it’s time to update the trick-or-treat locations, and the events for 2016. The letterbox is full of magazines, and sure enough, Luna Park is having the regular...

Wow, what a year. Starting with a torn ACL/MCL from soccer, progressing to an enhanced Angelina-Jolie operation, son in hospital and then a surprise cancer diagnosis. Nothing like celebrating halloween with a chemo bottle attached – makes for a great costume opportunity. But that’s all finished now, and my halloween treats will be healthier this year. Yeah, right. Luckily Buddy was on hand to help me decorate.

And it’s October. The local discount store has had halloween decorations for the last two weeks. People are talking about halloween costumes on Facebook. And it’s time to plan what you’re wearing and where you’re going on Friday October 31. I’ve just spent the morning building a whole bunch of halloween boards at Pinterest. There’s a separate board for each of: Halloween Costumes Halloween Costumes – Home-made Halloween Decorations...

Halloween 2013

It’s finally the countdown month. Even the pet shop on the way to work has halloween costumes for dogs in their front window. Hits on the site are up, so I really need to finish re-entering the trick or treat streets from previous years. You’d think with two teenage boys addicted to the online world that I’d be able to get some cheap data entry, but nope, it’s down to mum again. I’ve split the Halloween Events into two sections this year...
