Bonfire Night 2018

I wholeheartedly apologise for the delay in
my posts. This week has been an incredibly stressful one. Our financial situation is being messed with, Vala's teenage attitude causing a lot of friction in the household with her diva tantrums and pushing myself back into baby lead weaning with Flynn. Even Bonfire Night was stressful this year!
This was Flynn's first ever bonfire night and so I didn't want it to just go by without doing anything for it. Trouble is we had nothing planned and neither did anyone close to us. So I looked up where we could go watch some fireworks and turned out there was a large firework display with a bonfire, carnival rides and food vendors down at the local recreation grounds. Perfect! Or so I thought. The fireworks weren't until 9pm so we'd have plenty of time to get there despite Jordan not getting home from work until 7:10pm. I had everything planned out and thought we'd be in for a great night!

It ended up being so stressful I regretted even making the plans. We left later than I planned, struggled to find somewhere to park the car, had to walk nearly 20 minutes to the grounds and then we literally got lucky with finding a perfect viewing spot 5 minutes before the fireworks actually started. My plans of being there 45 mins before the display so we could check out the bonfire and let Vala go on some rides went out the window. The kids did however enjoy the fireworks so I guess that's the main thing. We went and checked out the bonfire despite not being able to get remotely close to it but once Flynn fell asleep in the pram and I'd had enough of the crowds, we decided it was time to call it a night. Never got around to taking Vala on any rides sadly.

So all in all, the kids seemed to enjoy the night but I certainly didn't get much enjoyment from it. Definitely going to try something much more low key next year, that's for sure.

Until next time,
