Weird COVID Halloween


Normally, I would be throwing a HUGE party for adults tonight. But no. And even though we are allowed 20, I don't want to bring that many different environments into our home, and to be honest, when we had the Eurovision party just after lockdown, that small a party felt a little sad and a bit of a downer...

Not entirely sure how trick'o'treating will work, and wish the Govt had just decided it shouldn't be done, instead of their weird rules on how to do it safely. So while I offered to take my youngest around the neighbourhood (and to school families), she has invited a friend over to watch a scary movie.

But she wanted us to decorate the house. So yesterday, I spent all day doing just that. I do have some lollies to peg over the fence at anyone who does trick'o'treat, but it appears the rain may keep that to a minimum anyway....

What a strange year...However, in the grand scheme of things, this is the least of the disturbances, and a quiet weekend might be just what the doctor ordered!

Linking with #MakroTex on October. Fingers crossed we can safely do something this year!
Happy Halloween everyone!

    Thanks for sharing at

  6. Dear me! This is certainly turning out to be an annus horribilis in all sorts of ways, Lydia. COVID has certainly made us re-examine the way we live and makes us appreciate all of the little things that gave us pleasure and that we took for granted.
    Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.

  7. The covid crisis has really changed a lot of things in our lives. Hopefully we will be going towards better times soon. Nice collection of black and whites!
