Happiness Is…

Preparing for Hallowe’en

I’m not big on the actual event. Trick or treating. Candy. Dealing with the door.

But I adore the month-long preparations.

The colours. The crafts. The googly-eyed desserts.
The rhyming, creativity-packed picture books. The manic costume creation.

Two years ago today, as I prepared for those long-awaited test-results, we splurged on Hallowe’en. Filling our craft-store basket, despite the expense.

I thought it was my last Hallowe’en.

It wasn’t.

Lucky, lucky me.
