Happy Halloween – look what we carved..!

It’s Halloween today and I wanted to show off the cool pumpkin that hubby and I carved yesterday.

Upon the recommendation of my friend-with-children, I bought this 3 piece pumpkin carving kit from The Factory Shop. It was already reduced to £1 when I bought it and that was a couple of weeks ago! I’ve been assured that this is the easiest way to carve a pumpkin and the little serrated knife IS pretty good at cutting out shapes because it’s thin blade makes it easy to manoeuver.

So we set to work, scraping out the seeds with the little ‘trowel’ and my artistic hubby drew a ghoulish face on the pumpkin before setting to work with the knife. And here’s how it turned out:

Let me know what you think and I’d love to see your pumpkin carvings – tweet me a photo to @Cassiefairy. Here’s the finished ‘angry pumpkin’:

In other news, I have been stuck without power, heating, hot water, phone or internet since the storm on Monday and am now finally back online hurrah! It was a dark and chilly time here at Cassiefairy HQ – kind of like camping, but in your own home – rather depressing really. So instead of sitting at home with not-much to do, I’ve been heading out to the nearby towns and utilising their coffee-shops and WiFi – although many had their internet wiped out by the storms too, so it’s been a bit hit-and-miss as to whether I’ve been able to get online this week at all (did you notice how quiet I’d been on Twitter?!). And I’ve rediscovered the high street! Instead of browsing fashion sites when I’m having my lunch-break, I’ve actually gone shopping for clothes in ‘real life’, and have had the pleasure of trying things on and making comparisons. I really think I’ve been away from the high street for too long haha! Although, the result of this is a yearning for a denim shirt and tweed jacket, but I won’t buy it until I’ve looked online to see if it’s cheaper elsewhere – you know me, I’m always looking for a bargain!
