Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason,
Should ever be forgot.
This year there weren't any local public displays of fireworks to attend, and the bigger ones down the valley are usually on weekends these days, which isn't always convenient. On actual bonfire night then we headed up the nearest hill, parked up with a whole convoy of other cars, and enjoyed the amazing view stretching all the way up, and all the way down, the valley we live in. Many private firework parties were taking place, so we had a good fireworks show from our vantage point. We'd brought a flask of hot chocolate (good call, it was freezing up on the hill!) and some giant sparklers, which we couldn't light at first as our lighter failed.

It was good to get home and warm, with a nice cheesy salmon and veg bake, followed by the first baked apples of the season (a bonfire night essential in our house).
Did you do anything for bonfire night?
