I love late October/early November because the time between Halloween and Bonfire Night here in England is always super fun!
And the food - we always did bangers and mash, or jacket potatoes cooked in the bonfire. Or Barbeque in November in UK. Great fun

Dman, HP, Cepe—you’ve got me thinking frequent flyer miles and a tartan rug! Sounds great fun

but need to wrap up well!

Come over, it is great fun

EDIT: I read recently that until 1856 (or thereabouts) it was illegal NOT to celebrate.

Indeed, it required all churches to preach on November 5th and in part read out the act, and people were required to attend. It was not then a celebration as it is now. That was overturned in 1859.

Anyways I loved bonfire night. I actually arrived in the UK about two weeks before when I moved there. It was my first big occasion. The food was amazing. Definitely a great welcome. Celebrated two while I was there, left a few weeks before my third.

I am sure the family had plenty of fun. Would have been great to catch up with the Grovesnors if they did indeed. Hugh's nieces and nephews are a good age for playing with George and Charlotte.

That is a lovely picture Rudolph. Who knew what would be ahead for them. In the two posts prior, a nod to Dman and Pranter, we know now they’ve joined “the trials and tribulations of parenthood”.

Yes, I remember and that was a very beautiful day. Those two were very nervous, but they looked so happy and in love, the nerves didn’t matter.

HA..and these trials don't end until death! Even when the kids are adults, parents are still parents.

Roger Federer and his young family had a brush with royalty when they stopped by at Kensington Palace to visit their friends Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Swiss tennis ace, who is in London this week for the ATP Finals, was joined by wife Mirka and their two sets of adorable twins on Wednesday night.

The family were spotted leaving their hotel on Wednesday afternoon before making the short drive to Kate and William's home where they stayed for around two hours.

I am only linking to this because it is so ridiculous!! Kate and William have been very tactile before. They have held hands going to church on Christmas morning and while they were hiking during one of their overseas tours. They spontaneously hugged each other once when watching an Olympics event, etc.etc Do they think we are idiots!?!?!?! These people will not stop with the comparisons between Kate and Meghan.

There have been many times William and Kate showed affection to each other in public.

She's touched his leg like that I don't know how many times. I suspect that they are pretty tactile when the privacy of their homes.

I’ll say! A third crumb snatcher is on her/his way.
