I like to try and carve a pumpkin every year for Halloween so trick or treaters know they can come to my house for sweets.
I usually go for a face but I thought this year I'd up the stakes and so I googled a template.
Drew it on in gel pen and then set about gutting out the pumpkin.
Barclay the cat wasn't loving the smell.
Then I set to work carving with a smaller knife. You know I should really get one of those kits with the special tools in... never mind,
Cat pumpkin is now in pride of place with a candle in to welcome children to my house (sounds sinister doesn't it!?).
Also, on another note, I got carried away with the Christmas things in Marks and Spencer and so I bought a pack of dried mulled wine berries and cinnamon and stuff. Only I don't like red wine so I've put it in apple juice to make hot spiced apple. Yum! Hurrah for Autumn!
