The impossible dream

Happy Halloween!

It’s very quiet around here, with nary a trick-or-treater. In fact the only guest we are expecting this evening is our financial advisor to discuss Life Insurance and Superannuation. Spoooooky!

Tomorrow is the first day of a new month and I am going to see if I can get my blogging mojo back by posting every day of the month. Do you think it’s possible?

  1. You’ve probably heard about it, but there’s this little thing going around called Nablopomo – basically…a blog post every day in November. I’m doing it, so should you 🙂

    Happy Halloween! I hope to see you post more in November, I’ve missed your posts!

  3. I believe in you, Pikachu! 🙂

  4. My two boys just steped out, one as Harry Potter the other Jack Sparrow.
    Happy Halloween.

  5. Of course it’s possible, Claire! And I’ll be looking forward to your posts.

  6. No trick-or-treaters here either…disappointing!Good Luck with the everyday posting. Can’t wait to hear all your news.

  7. It’s lovely to see you back more often ! 🙂
    I’ve had 6 callers tonight – none of them particularly well-dressed in the costume dept, but pretty impressed with my loot ( I think they weren’t doing so well ).

    I didn’t think a humble twist-tied bag of lollies would produce so many “Oh WOW”‘s and sincere “ThankYOU’s” !!

    I am so glad I was prepared, and that the kids were so grateful for such little things 🙂

    The streets of Clifton Hill, Melbourne were full of little trick-or-treaters!
    Thanks for the great Halloween ideas via Kiddley Claire, they came very much in handy for after school care activities today.

    So great to have you back, I love reading your work while I’m supposed to be studying…

    I feel like such a wet blanket, but I’m relieved that Halloween has passed without trace at our school and neighbourhood. Halloween trick-or-treating is such a peculiarly USA tradition that here it just seems weird (what’s next – an Aussie Thanksgiving?!). In previous years I’ve had some very aggressive adults (no kids in tow) attempting to trick-or-treat, to the point where I was scared about what the tricks might turn out to be. I’m sure that’s not how it’s supposed to be done and I hope that for those to whom it means something, it was a good Halloween.

    I felt a bit like scrooge, turning away the two children who turned up in costume. I know the kids see it on TV, but shouldn’t the adults realise that we don’t really celebrate halloween in Australia, so the chances of scoring a treat are pretty slim? It would be better to prearrange trick or treating with families in your street that you know.

    That will be great, thank you for thinking in readers once again!!!

  12. Oh! Thanks Alison! I will definitely be joining NaBloPoMo — and because the link didn’t work here it is again:

  13. I love the garland! I’m signing up too for nablopomo! Good luck to all of us!

    Halloween in Australia seems like just another one of those things that doesn’t make seasonal sense – we’ve just started daylight savings, we’re wearing sandals (at least during the day) and organising picnics for the Spring Racing Carnival.
    It seems very strange to interrupt all that to dress up as creatures of the night.

  15. that’d be fantastic if you do! oh it’s nice to see something on Halloween too. I get excited about it even though its quite here in Australia. I even released my spooky stop-motion film I created a couple of years ago in celebration 31st October!
