    Default My Pumpkin

    My pumpkin - which was purchased from a farm shop near Pickering -
    has a circumference of 104cm and is 46cm high.

    I'm gonna make me some pumpkin pie this weekend
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this

    When my daughter was five, I bought a load of balsa sticks and tissue paper.

    I carefully crafted a 'Chinese lantern' . the idea is a a lighted candle , heats the air and the lantern floats away, glowing in a beatiful black night sky.

    A perfect memory from childhood. She still remembers that frosty halloween evening on Crosby beach when we lit the candle and the whole fkng thing went up like an atom bomb.
    It took six months for my eyebrows to grow back

    You can buy these from fireworks shops. I'm going to buy a couple of hundred and see if I can bring down a 747 on it's way into Heathrow...

    That was a real laugh out loud moment, nice one.

    And reminded me so I just ordered some Chinese Lanterns, expect UFO reports in the local papers

    Well spotted Zippy!
    I gave one away to my neighbour, her daughter is best friends with Pogle Jr
    and it stopped Mr P laughing at all his jokes about my huge pumpkins
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this
