Halloween night was so much fun. It (happily) coincided with a dinner with friends. There was thunder, there was lightening, not to mention delicious home-made curry, dahl and fish dipped in spices. Later we had creamy, toffee topped chocolate pots ...then we worked it all off playing Wii...NOT, but had fun trying. Turns out I'm brilliant and down-hill skiing. Who knew?

Outside the storm blew in. A few spooky stories and a strange noise upstairs. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when I passed a Melbourne institution - Bernard's Magic Shop in Elizabeth Street.

Sounds a perfect evening. Must admit, I am a little envious.

For us it rained indoors and we spent our Halloween eve mopping the ceiling and shifting furniture from way of the drenching. Damn that accursed leaf blocking the gutter to the down pipe.
