Just a quick post to say that hallowe'en went really well. The recipes I used were from here - I added extra 'blood' to the fingers to make them appear severed and used jam under the fingernails instead of painting them. They looked really good! They tasted quite good, although I've had better biscuits (I did make them a little too thick I think).
The brainballs were yummy and incredibly addictive - be warned!
Somehow we managed to fit everything in - eating, watching horror films, drinks, tricks, some fancy dress (if you can call wearing hats fancy dress) and dancing.
I named my pumpkin Glee, and regretted telling my best friend about a pumpkin I'd seen that had had it's guts placed in its mouth a la vomit.
