09:19 pm: Wow, what a day...
It started harmlessly enough, but just after Viv stepped out to go shopping with her mother, the phone started to ring. Over the course of the next few hours, phone calls and emails from four different recruitment agencies, all of whom had exciting new opportunities for me to consider. It made for a busy day, as return emails and phone calls bounced to and fro as I considered carefully what they have to say. One has already come back with a provisional time for an interview with a prospective employer, a household name in finance.
Among the phone calls was one to say that David's computer had been repaired and was ready for collection. Soon after Viv got back, we went to collect it. Boy, it's got cold when the wind blows.
Pretty soon it was time to set out to church for what has now become the tradition for 31 October. As a protest against what has happened, a reclaiming of the night, as a group from our church give gifts to the houses nearby. No trick: just a treat. Viv and I gave out a small bag of chocolates and a note to each house in one road near church.
After coffee at church afterwards, it was time to come home, so we did that.

Oh, I'd forgotten about your giving on 31st October, I love that idea. We sure gave, heaps of chocolate and smarties to the hordes that made it through our very large, closed gates!!

I hope there are exciting job opportunities for you ahead then. I'm sure the right one will appear for you just at the right time.

Do you get much wind over there? I can't imagine living where there isn't any wind. We had a calm day today though, which was magnificent *g*

Thank you. Yes, it can be, but not nearly as much as wild, windy, Wellington.

As regards Halloween, I always though Conal Cochran had the right idea.

Do you know (and this is just hearsay, I haven't seen it myself, but that won't prevent me from repeating it as fact) that Tesco now sell little plastic pumpkin shaped baskets for the kids to take round and fill up. I find the whole thing sickening these days, though I found the whole witchy spooky thing great fun as a small child. No trick or treating though, thanks to my parents for that.

Your version sounds an awful lot better than what it's become now - still not necessarily my cup of tea, but I wish you every success with the reclaiming.
