November Update

Time for the November update! I know I just did October's but I was behind with that, lol. And now we're getting towards the end of Nov.

At the beginning of the month I went to a belly dance fusion workshop with Lianna Greene. We learnt a dance to Sonne by the German metal band Rammstein! I also went to two Meetup events, coffee at Tom Foolery in Shoreham and brunch at Cote Brasserie in Brighton.

It's still been raining a lot but we've had some nice, sunny days (although cold). Here's a picture I took when I went to Tom Foolery:

October Update

Time for the October Update! I'm later doing it again this month because I did two Samhain posts first. :) Read previous monthly updates here:

During October I attended a two week mindfulness course at my local mental health resource centre. Last October we had some good weather and I wore my flip flops still but this year it was too cold. I've officially put them away now, lol.

I tried out a new belly dance class and also went to my first event with a new Meetup group, brunch at a local tearoom called Teddys.

The day before Hallowe'en I went to a local firework day display for Bonfire Night. (It's always the Wednesday before Bonfire Night). Here are a few pictures:

Hallowe'en/Samhain 2019

Last Thursday (31st October) it was Samhain/Hallowe'en. I celebrated with a pumpkin and having some food and drink, including my usual Demon's Blood drink (ginger beer mixed with apple juice and orange juice and dyed green!), a recipe I got from Kate West; and potato salad based on a recipe in The Kitchen Witch book by Soraya.

This year I actually had two pumpkins, a little one and a bigger one. Here's a pic:
